Your last assignment in each module is to take the timed
module exam. Each module exam consists of 20 questions, from a pool of
module questions, randomly chosen by the computer for each learner. You will have 15 minutes to complete each module exam. The timing is done to prepare you for taking a timed National Phlebotomy Exam. Your goal is to get a 75% or higher on each Module Exam. If you wish to retake an exam for a module, you

Multiple-choice questions generally follow a pattern. This pattern is two answers that don’t fit, one answer that is close and one answer that is correct.
You may be out of practice with reading technical material and need to practice reading and comprehension. Do as many practice exams as possible.
If you find that you are having a difficult time with remembering something, make flash cards, crib sheets, spreadsheets, flowcharts or some other study material that will help you remember. Often the act of writing the material down in your own method of note taking will be the best way to memorize.
