CIH Toxicology Practice Exams
You will pass the CIH exam. Our objective is to make this statement a reality. In my experience as a CIH Review instructor I have seen many talented and intelligent CIH candidates sit for and fail the CIH exam, not because they weren't smart, but because they did not hone their test-taking skills through practice.
Preparing for the CIH exam is very much like preparing for a marathon. Taking practice exams is the equivalent of training by running and should be a regular (at least weekly) part of your study plan and schedule. This practice exam provides over 50 multiple-choice toxicology practice questions for CIH candidates (two 25+ practice exams).
Toxicology is a critical area of understanding for practicing industrial hygienists. It's also quite possibly the most important topic on the CIH exam. Its only rival for importance is ventilation.
Learning Objectives and Topics
As a result of using this course (both taking the practice exams and studying the solutions), you will broaden your toxicology knowledge in preparation for the exam. Some of contaminant classes include:
We recommend taking the Toxicology Test 1, studying for one or more weeks, and then taking the Toxicology Test 2. Don't review the solutions after either. Later, after you've completed a substantial amount of studying, come back to and take both tests, and then carefully review the solutions for questions or solutions you don't understand.
