Official PCAT Practice Test

Comprehensive tools to prepare for the PCAT

The Official PCAT Practice Tests and Study Guide will provide you with a unique opportunity to prepare for the actual test. Three components are now available for purchase:

  • PCAT Multiple-Choice Practice Tests Three complete sets of four multiple-choice subtests include items like those you will find on the actual test, provide explanations for each item, and allow you to print out a diagnostic score report with your results. A timer is provided if you choose to simulate timed conditions like the actual PCAT.
  • PCAT Writing Practice Tests Four different writing prompts allow you to compose essays on topics like you will find on the PCAT, have your essays scored electronically, and immediately receive a score report with your results. A timer is provided if you choose to replicate the time limit of the exam.
  • PCAT Study Guide This comprehensive handbook contains detailed information about the structure and contents of the PCAT, scoring information, and sample items for the four multiple-choice subtests and the Writing subtest.

All Official PCAT Practice Tests are aligned to the current structure of the PCAT and are available for purchase. All purchases are nonrefundable and provide you with access to all test preparation components purchased from the date of purchase until the end of February, when the current annual test cycle ends.
