This website is not affiliated or sponsored by any state or organization. The information provided was researched through open source material and collected by Private Investigators. The practice examinations created are based on each states laws, policies and regulations. They were created based on an examination outline and content structure. Our SME's have written questions based on the subject matter obtained from the state. The SME's used their expertise, training and experience to building questions in the same manner as a test development program. We therefore want to make clear that any questions similar in any manner to questions on the actual examination are purely coincidental. We at piPrep Inc. do not condone nor encourage cheating in any manner. Our products are to be used as a study guide and tool to pass the state licensing examination. Any questions can be posted to the President, piPrep Inc at Contactus@pi-prep.com. Good luck with your examination. I hope piPrep Inc. was of value to your testing experience.
