This website is not affiliated or sponsored by any state or organization. The information provided was researched through open-source material and collected from the individual state sponsoring the examination. The practice examinations created are based on each states laws, policies and regulations. They were created based on an examination outline and content structure. The state has a bank of hundreds, if not thousands, of test questions to choose from when creating individual tests. This is another safety measure taken by the testing company to help protect their test from compromise. Therefore, when you buy one of our practice examinations you are purchasing knowing that these are sample questions that will not be on the actual test, nor can we say that all subjects in our practice examination will be on the State examination.  Use our practice examinations as a study tool and not your only study guide material.  We recommend you study the material and take our examination to help test your knowledge of what you have studied thus far.  We do not recommend taking our practice examination and using it as your only study material.  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.  Do not hold piPrep Inc. responsible if you fail the examination, it's you and only you who is responsible for studying and retaining knowledge of the material provided the state.  Any questions can be posted to the President, piPrep Inc at piprepexams@gmail.com. Good luck with your examination. I hope piPrep Inc. was of value to your testing experience.
