It’s time for NBEO® Part 1 ABS – are you ready? Studying for the exam is nerve-racking on its own, preparing for the logistics shouldn’t be. Here’s some information on what to expect on test day, including some COVID-19 related updates regarding testing at Pearson VUE test centers.
When you register for Part 1 ABS, you will get a confirmation email from Pearson VUE with information about the exam and scheduling. The exam consists of two sessions, four hours each. Each session consists of 185 items and the items are randomized and in no particular order. The first session also provides a 15 minute tutorial on how to navigate the program as well as an NDA agreement. There is an optional 45 minute break between session 1 and 2. Though this break is optional and you can begin the second session right after the first, It’s a good idea to take a meal break and rest before conquering the second half.
