The exam has 200 multiple choice questions. Each question has exactly one correct answer. You will get 4 hours to answer these questions. 25 pre-test questions will be randomly placed throughout the new examination to gather statistical information on the performance of these questions, in order to determine whether they may be used on future examinations.
