pre-naplex.jpgMany years of study and hundreds of hours as an intern have prepared you for the NAPLEX, but a trial run can help you stay on track. The Pre-NAPLEX simulates the NAPLEX testing experience as you field questions similar to those you will face on the day of the test. Available online, you may take the Pre-NAPLEX anywhere you have an Internet connection.

This 100-question, 140-minute practice examination costs $65 each time. You must complete the test in its entirety once you begin, and you will not be able to review questions or change an answer once you confirm an answer choice. You may take the Pre-NAPLEX up to two times. The Pre-NAPLEX content has been updated to correspond to the NAPLEX Competency Statements which go into effect on November 1, 2015.

Upon completion of the Pre-NAPLEX, you will be provided your score report. You can also access your score report immediately after completing the Pre-NAPLEX through your examination history within your NABP e-Profile. The Pre-NAPLEX score is intended to provide you with information on your performance in answering a subset of test questions similar to those you will encounter on the NAPLEX under pre-testing conditions. NABP does not claim that a strong performance on the Pre-NAPLEX predicts passing the NAPLEX. A thorough understanding of the NAPLEX Competency Statements will help you prepare for the exam.

PLEASE NOTE: Before purchasing the Pre-NAPLEX, please ensure that you have the minimum system requirements to run the test. The Safari browser on the Mac platform is NOT supported, and you may encounter difficulties in completing the exam if you utilize Safari as your browser. Please utilize Chrome or Firefox if you plan to take your Pre-NAPLEX using an Apple computer.

Schools and Colleges of Pharmacy: Help Your
Students Succeed

If your school or college of pharmacy would like to assist students in preparing for the NAPLEX, the Pre-NAPLEX offers the most comprehensive preparation because it features actual questions from previous examinations. To give students the most realistic testing experience, some institutions arrange the Pre-NAPLEX to be administered in a group setting, in a controlled and proctored environment.

Schools and colleges of pharmacy may purchase vouchers to cover the cost of the Pre-NAPLEX for their students. Each voucher costs $55 and is good for one examination. Schools that order more than 100 vouchers earn a 10% discount. To order vouchers, please fill out the Pre-NAPLEX Voucher Order Form (PDF) along with a purchase order (if desired). Schools will be invoiced for the purchase and the contact person indicated on the order form will be e-mailed a spreadsheet that contains the voucher codes, along with additional usage instructions. Voucher codes can be used for two years from the date of purchase.
