Two New Practice Exams

When it gets close to exam time, work through two comprehensive exams of 90 questions each. Compare your results to see the range of scores you can anticipate on the actual credentialing exam.

The questions are written and grouped based on the five ServSafe domains, just as they are on the real exam.

You can take the practice exam as many times as you like. Each time it will be different since the test is generated from a large pool of questions.
