2022 Addiction e-Practice Test (ADePT) 

A Proven Self-Assessment Tool for Certification Exam Prep

The Addiction e-Practice Test (ADePT), revised edition available May 5, is a proven knowledge self-assessment and subspecialty certification examination preparation tool developed without industry support or influence by an academic panel of addiction medicine experts from the American College of Academic Addiction Medicine.

"I just took my board exam this morning and your question bank by far was the closest approximation to the real thing. Would highly recommend as a prep exam!"

ADePT has been optimized based on psychometric analysis performed by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and meets the high standards expected from an actual board exam. The formatting of ADePT is the closest available to the actual certification exam. 

The practice test has been fully updated and based on the evolving recognition of the importance of patient-centered language in addition medicine, attention has been paid to using destigmatizing language. 2022 ADePT is an evidence-based, referenced, cognitive assessment tool including 187 questions addressing all 17 core content areas of the American Board of Preventive Medicine Addiction Medicine examination. Feedback regarding correct and incorrect answers is provided upon completion of the practice test regardless of a passing rate.
