NAPLEX Advantage

To help assess your readiness for the NAPLEX®, your college of pharmacy may offer the NAPLEX Advantage tool. NAPLEX Advantage features a practice exam experience similar to that of the actual high-stakes exam day as well as comprehensive performance reports. NAPLEX Advantage is only available for purchase by colleges of pharmacy; it is not available for purchase by individual students. The Pre-NAPLEX practice exam continues to be an affordable, helpful resource to help you prepare for taking the NAPLEX.

NAPLEX Advantage Key Features 

If your college of pharmacy has purchased the tool, you can look forward to the following benefits.

All the questions on the NAPLEX Advantage were previously used on past NAPLEX exams. Items are exclusive to NAPLEX Advantage and are not included on any stand-alone Pre-NAPLEX tests.
