Registered Medical Assistant | RMA Practice Test
Preparing for your RMA (Registered Medical Assistant) exam by taking practice tests has many benefits. Using sample questions to study for your test is the most effective study practice you can use. The advantages of using RMA sample tests include:
- Increasing Your Speed – The RMA exam has a three hour time limit. Although most students who take the RMA feel that there is sufficient time, taking the practice tests with self-imposed timers help you budget your time effectively. You should budget approximately 1 minute for each question.
- Becoming comforable with the Test Format – Every standardized test has its own unique format. As you take practice RMA tests you will become comfortable with the format of the actual test. Once the test day arrives you will have no surprises!
- Concentrating Your Prep Time – As you take more and more sample quizzes you begin to get a feel for the topics that you know well and the areas that you are weak on. Many students waste a lot of valuable study time by reviewing material that they are good at (often because it is easier or makes them feel better). The most effective way to study is to concentrate on the areas that you need help on.
