NATA Exam Study Guide

Through two mock exams, the Study Guide for the BOC Exam can help identify your strong and weak knowledge areas so you can better prepare for your certification test. These mock exams will expose you to both the content matter and the “feel” of the BOC exam, increasing your chances of success! 


The Study Guide for the BOC Exam will:

  • Help a candidate understand how to use the BOC Practice Analysis in exam preparation;
  • Evaluate a candidate’s knowledge of topics within each of the domains;
  • Increase a candidate’s understanding of tasks within the BOC Practice Analysis;
  • Provide a detailed report of the candidate’s performance on the mock exams to identify areas of weakness that require further study.

Why use the study guide for the BOC Exam?

We know you have options when it comes to preparing for the BOC exam. Look no further, as the Study Guide for the BOC Exam provides benefits you won’t find elsewhere:

  • Individualized report for each of the two mock exams 
  • Combined report that highlights your strengths and weaknesses from both mock exams
