ABEM Optional Computer-delivered Testing Experience
ABEM offers a short computer-delivered testing experience in Pearson VUE testing centers. This offering is designed for candidates who have not previously taken an examination in a testing center. Physicians will have an opportunity to see how an actual ABEM examination is formatted on the computer, practice navigating a computer-based demonstration examination, and experience the same security procedures and opening and closing activities of an actual ABEM examination.
To allow candidates to practice navigating a computer-based examination, ABEM provides a 20-25 question demonstration test that candidates can take during the computer-delivered testing experience. The demonstration test is not designed to assist candidates in preparing for the content of an actual ABEM examination. The demonstration test will not be scored, and the questions do not represent the examination content, subject matter, or level of difficulty of an actual ABEM examination.

Diplomates may register for the demonstation test through their ABEM MOC Online Personal Page. Follow the instructions given at the end of registration to contact Pearson VUE to schedule an appointment to take the demonstration test.
Please be aware that a free tutorial that simulates the experience of navigating through a general computerized test is available for free download to your own computer from the testing company's website (http://www.vue.com/sponsors/tutorial), and the examination itself will also include a tutorial for taking the examination prior to beginning the actual examination.
