AIS Check

The AIS Check is a set of two online practice tests designed to assess your readiness to take the actual AIS Exam. The practice tests are meant to simulate your exam-day experience as closely as possible. They are timed and structured with approximately the same weightings as the actual exams.

You can use the AIS Check to complement your studies as you prepare for the final exams. However, before you use it, we recommend that you complete all the course components, including the readings and review questions, to fully prepare for the practice tests and to close gaps in your learning.

Your focus, first and foremost, should be on reading and understanding the textbook so that you perform as well as possible on the practice tests.
