If you are currently preparing for the PCE, you should know how valuable mock exams are for studying. I can guarantee this because I’ve been there. In previous blogs I have already covered why you should be using PCE mock exams and how to evaluate the quality of mock exam resources. The concern now isn’t so much whether you should be using PCE mock exams to study, but where you can find them?
When looking for PCE mock exams, I suggest first taking our free Where Are You At Quiz, a timed 30-question PCE mock exam. You should challenging this mock exam at two points in your study plan, first at the beginning of your journey, then once more two weeks before you’re written PCE exam. Initially this will give you a sense of your baseline knowledge for each of the PCE content categories, and help you decide how to allocate your time studying. Taking it again two weeks before you write the PCE will quantify the progress you have made, and identify your weakest content categories so you can focus your attention during your final days of preparation.
