The Virtual PANCE and PANRE – It’s Like Having a Pearson VUE Testing Center in Your Living Room

The-Virtual-PANCE-and-PANRE--Pin-2When preparing for your PANCE or PANRE board exam it is hard to know what to expect on test day.

Yes, you can watch the preparatory NCCPA PANCE Video or PANRE Video and you should, because they are informative. Usually after I watch them 2 or maybe even 3 times I feel more knowledgeable but also increasingly anxious.

To make matters worse, if you are preparing for your PANRE exam, like I did just a few years ago, you are even further removed from the mindset of sitting still and taking a 4-hour exam.

While working with students, I have learned that Studying for your PANCE or PANRE is like preparing for the NBA finals: 

The best way to prepare for a sporting event is to replicate the actual situation as best as you can prior to game day. The same holds true for your PANCE or PANRE exam.

Which is why I created the Virtual PANCE and PANRE.

The Virtual PANCE and PANRE

The goal of this virtual experience is to replicate your actual test day as best as we can.

Although my virtual exams do not come with a fingerprint scanner, locker space or a 6x6 foot testing cubicle, I have done my very best to emulate the actual testing experience.  This is excellent preparation for "game day".

The Virtual PANCE and PANRE is part of my PANCE and PANRE Academy, where you have instant access to:

  • Access to a ton of mobile flashcard sets
  • A 4-hour ECG video lecture series
  • Compiled PANCE and PANRE Review tables (thank you "Running PA")
  • Two, 120 question "legacy" PANCE and PANRE exams
  • A developing mobile audio PANCE and PANRE exam to take in the car or to the gym
  • The 5 hour Virtual PANCE and/or PANRE
  • And a couple more surprising "goodies"

The Virtual PANCE and PANRE is my newest addition and one of my favorite parts of the Exam Academy.

The virtual exam is extremely simple in design, but if used correctly (i.e you schedule an actual 4 or 5 hour block of time) you will be able to replicate a "controlled" testing environment that simulates the time limits and exam blocks you will have to navigate on test day better than any other premium testing platform on the market.

My Virtual PANCE and PANRE is just like the Actual PANCE and PANRE


Exam Blocks

The exams are administered in multiple blocks of test questions.

Exam Length

The five-hour Virtual PANCE exam includes 300 multiple-choice questions administered in five blocks of 60 questions with 60 minutes to complete each block. There is a total of 45 minutes allotted for breaks between blocks and you will be responsible for managing your break time.

The four-hour Virtual PANRE exam includes 240 multiple-choice questions administered in four blocks of 60 questions with 60 minutes to complete each block. There is a total of 45 minutes allotted for breaks between blocks and you will be responsible for managing your break time.

Note: During the Virtual PANCE and PANRE you will have a chance to review the questions and answers as you complete each block and you will be scored immediately upon completion.

The Six-Years-Six-Attempts Rule

Don't worry about this one, I give you as many attempts as you like.

Summary

If you are studying for your PANCE or PANRE the best way to prepare is to practice. The best way to know what to expect on game day is to play a game prior to game day. The Virtual PANCE and PANRE will allow you to play the game before you arrive at the arena.

The more you play in the arena, the better your chances are at winning come game day. As of now, the virtual PANCE and PANRE is really the only arena available in which to practice and as part of the Exam Academy you get a lot of bang for you buck.

My goal is always to help you succeed by creating the best resources I can at an amazingly affordable price.  The cost of most testing platforms is ridiculous!  As PAs we succeed together and I have created the Virtual PANCE and PANRE because it is what I needed when I was studying and I am happy to share it with you in hopes that it will help make your life easier, alleviate some of your anxiety on test day and prepare you in the best way humanly possible.

Thank you dearly to everyone for all the continued support, emails and kind words. It is what keeps this blog, this community and these resources flowing. I am so grateful every day for each and every one of you, and I wish you the best as you prepare for your board exams.

As always, if you ever have any pre-sale questions or you just want to say hi please drop me a line or leave a comment down below in the comments section, I always love to hear from readers!

Take Care,

Stephen
