CNA Practise Test

As a student who has just passed and completed your CNA courses, you are now ready to take the official nursing assistant exam which will certify you to be employed as a bona fide nursing assistant. Taking such an important test can be nerve-wracking, however, and even if you have diligently studied, read and re-read your textbooks and other school materials, you may still feel like you are not quite ready to take the nursing exam. Luckily, there are online sources, such as study guides, that you can access in order to prepare better and feel less nervous when taking the test. A CNA practice test is also available online which is a fair representation of the real thing. Many students take advantage of the online CNA practice test, which allows you to examine and answer questions similar in format to the actual questions on the CNA test.

Since CNA certification tests are different according to the state they are regulated by, a site called Pearson VUE is very helpful in that it lists CNA test information according to what a state requires to be included in the test. For example, if you are taking the test in the state of California, then you can look for that state in the drop-down menu which will give you a CNA practice test comparable to the one you will receive in California. This website also has additional educational tools that will help you study for the exam.

The NNAAP Nurse Aide Practice Written Exam Packet is another online site that assists students in passing the certified nursing exam. You will be able to download a 13 page PDF practice exam, along with the answers, which you can take as many times as you want. It also serves as an excellent study guide for the actual test.

You might also search for those “free online classes” that are offered to the public which cover an assortment of subjects, and use the instructional videos they advertise as review for your CNA test. In addition, nursing homes and other long-term health care facilities will sometimes offer free CNA training classes which could further augment your knowledge and help you feel much more confident about being able to pass the CNA exam. Many students admit that it is only the clinical portion of the test which makes them nervous to think about. One way to alleviate this insecurity is to actually practice the fundamental concepts of care-giving on a family member or friend. Obtain a wheelchair somewhere and have your subject pretend to be incapacitated. Practice getting him or her out of the wheelchair properly, placing them correctly into a bed, checking their vital signs; you could even practice the correct procedure regarding bathing a patient (if you know the person well enough!).

Remember that although you might do great on the written part of a CNA practice test, it is the clinical aspects of nursing which the exam supervisors will be observing closely, so don’t neglect procedures of proper patient care. Imagine how you would like to be treated if you were the a patient who was unable to feed or clothe themselves, and show them the compassion and respect you would like to receive.

Introduction to Arizona Educator Proficiency Assessments Test

AEPA tests provide a means of ascertaining someone’s qualification in his or her given area of specialty. An administrator or a teacher needs to prove his or her sound grasp of a given subject in order to receive the AEPA certification. In addition, the person will show capability of imparting that knowledge to others appropriately.

The AEPA tests are therefore divided into different categories, depending on subject knowledge, professional knowledge, and grade levels. For example, those who expect to teach preschool pupils have to pass tests for both early childhood education subject knowledge and early childhood professional knowledge. This is important due to the fact that preschool classrooms are not separated into subject specialty. It is therefore necessary that teachers prove their knowledge of all subjects, which they will have to teach. Those intending to teach grade K-8 must pass the elementary education subject knowledge and elementary professional knowledge tests, which also test their knowledge of all subjects.

On the other side, for one to be certified as a secondary school teacher, the tests covering subjects are divided into different topics in line with what a candidate expects to teach. This is in addition to passing the secondary professional knowledge test. This therefore means that a candidate will be required to take various tests in order to be certified to teach different subjects.

However, when a candidate is to teach technical education and career courses, there is no requirement to take subject matter exams. Administrators too have AEPA tests that certify them to work in the State of Arizona. The exams for administrators only require a relevant administrator test, be it principal, superintendent, or supervisor test.

AEPA tests are graded from 100 to 300 points and a candidate must score a minimum of 240 points in order to qualify. The scores are graded either as ‘pass’ or ‘fail’.

It is advisable to make use of relevant exam preparation materials to ensure one’s success. There are many AEPA study guides available both online and offline. Your study tools should be comprehensive enough to cover all relevant areas of the AEPA exam. The official AEPA web site will offer you useful study guides, including practice questions that prepare you for the real exam. The web site also gives dates for respective exams. It is therefore important to visit the web site in your preparation to take an AEPA certification test.

There are also other study guides that you may be able to download from a variety of web sites. You will be able to get a good grasp of what to expect in the exam, including some questions to expect and how they are set. It should not be difficult to manage an AEPA certification test since you will have already passed through relevant higher institutions of learning.

Passing a 1G Welding Certification Test – The Easiest Welding Test Or is 3G Vertical Easier?

Welding Certification tests are numbered by position and joint type. For instance a 1 G indicates a flat position groove weld. The 1 means flat position, and the G indicates a groove weld.

I saw a video the other day that advertised a  mobile welding lab that was used to train and certify welders. 

A few students as well as the instructor were  interviewed and described the 8 weeks of welding training  that led up to welding certification tests in the 1G position.


That’s right, 8 weeks of welding training per process to be able to certify in a 1 G weld test.

I don’t get it. After 8 weeks of training in a welding process, why can’t the welder pass some other positions like 3G and 4G welding tests? 

Did you know that a 3G plate test combined with a 4G plate test certifies a welder in ALL positions?

That’s all positions. Like 1G , 2G, 3G, and 4G. as well as every position of fillet welds imaginable too.

A 1G welding test certifies a welder to weld in how many positions? One ! that’s it …just one.

You get a lot more bang for your buck by training welders to certify in both the 3G and 4G positions.

Another issue is that 1G welding tests typically don’t have very good pass rates.

You know why?

Gravity. That’s right., gravity is working against you and not for you. Gravity lets the slag flow ahead of the arc on a 1G welding test and if you are not careful, it can cause cold lap and slag inclusions.

Gravity works For you and not against you on a 3G vertical plate welding test. 

Gravity keeps the flux behind the arc. The arc is then allowed to do its thing and penetrate into the base metal. As long as you maintain enough amperage and a tight arc, things will go well on a 3G vertical plate test.

The AWS (American Welding Society) classifies the 1G position welding test as the easiest.

I disagree with that when it comes to beveled groove welds.

I believe 2G horizontal and 3G vertical welding certification tests have better pass rates when it comes to a bend test or x ray testing.
