To answer most of the above questions, you need to reliably assess where you currently stand regarding in terms of your preparation for the real exam. Once you know your current level, you can choose the appropriate study aids and confidently plan to be successful in the real exam.

The best way to assess your current level is to take PBA® Practice Exam Simulated on the Pattern of the Actual PBA® Exam. The software generated results of the simulated mock exam will give you a clear understanding of your strengths and weaknesses in addition to helping you assess your overall preparation for the exam.
