Nutrition Test Prep (NTP) Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How similar are your questions to the actual CNS exam?

A: The practice exam questions provided by NTP are meticulously designed to cover the entirety of the nutrition science field, ensuring comprehensive preparation for CNS candidates. While our questions address a wide range of nutrition-related topics, it's important to note that they do not represent the specific questions found on the actual CNS exam, as those are confidential and proprietary. Therefore, any resemblance between our practice exam questions and those on the CNS exam would be purely coincidental. However, by thoroughly covering relevant topics, it is likely that many of the subjects addressed in our practice exams will be beneficial for your exam preparation.

Q: Do you guarantee that I will pass my exam?

A: No, we do not provide any guarantee that anyone will pass the exam. Scoring well on NTP practice exams doesn't guarantee success on your actual exam. NTP is not responsible for dissatisfaction with your practice test results or actual exam results. Success on the CNS exam is influenced by several factors, including but not limited to the amount of time spent studying, individual learning styles, and prior knowledge. Additionally, it's important to note that the content and format of the CNS exam may change periodically, further impacting the outcome. While our practice exams are designed to aid in thorough preparation, achieving success ultimately depends on the candidate's dedication and effort in studying.

Q: What does your practice exam platform offer?

A: Our practice exam platform offers unlimited access to practice exams covering various topics in the nutrition science field for a period of four months. Additionally, we provide access to a members-only chat forum where you can connect with others, form study groups, or discuss exam-related topics.

Coming soon, we will also introduce four live quiz sessions in the month leading up to the exam. This allows you to engage in friendly competition amongst peers while we delve into case-style questions to enhance your exam preparation. This is most likely going to be a feature in fall 2024, but we are aiming to do a beta test mode for the spring 2024 test takers.

Q: How does the unlimited practice exam subscription work?

A: Upon signing up, you will automatically gain access to our unlimited practice exams for a period of four months. Additionally, you have the flexibility to select your preferred start date if you are purchasing for a future date. Once your chosen start date is activated, you will have four months of unrestricted access to our practice exams. Your subscription will automatically end after four months, so there is no need to remember to cancel. Rest assured, there will be no further billing from us.

Q: How many times can I take your practice exams?

A: Our exams are unlimited, allowing you to take them as many times as you wish within your subscription period.

Q: What is your refund policy?

A: All transactions related to NTP's products are final and non-refundable. Once a transaction is completed, returns or exchanges will not be permitted.

Q: Can I share my membership with a friend?

A: No, we enforce a strict non-sharing policy. Each practice exam taken incurs costs on our end, and maintaining budget-friendly prices is one of our primary goals. Therefore, sharing memberships would compromise our ability to offer affordable rates. Additionally, by purchasing NTP’s products, you agree not to disclose, reproduce, distribute, or share any of its content, including questions or answers, with any other individual or entity. Violations of our non-sharing policy will lead to an immediate termination of your access to our website, and legal action may follow, including potential financial penalties.

Q: Can I share a question with another person, entity, or social media outlet, especially if I have a question?

A: No. By purchasing NTP’s products, you agree not to disclose, reproduce, distribute, or share any of its content, including questions or answers, with any other individual or entity. This includes, but is not limited to, capturing screenshots, copying text, or discussing specifics on social media forums or any other platform. Should you have any questions about the validity of a specific question and answer, or need clarification, please contact us instead of posting on social media forums.  Violations of our non-sharing policy will lead to an immediate termination of your access to our website, and legal action may follow, including potential financial penalties.

Q: What do I do if I have a question about a specific practice exam question?

A: Our members' area provides a private chat forum where you can post any questions or feedback you have regarding specific practice exam questions. Additionally, you are welcome to email us privately, and our team will promptly address your concerns.

Q: Are there any prerequisites for using the practice exam platform?

A: No, there are no specific prerequisites for using our practice exam platform. However, it is strongly recommended that users have completed relevant education before signing up. Additionally, users should be actively studying for the upcoming CNS exam to make the most effective use of the practice exams.

Q: Are there any study resources or materials provided along with the practice exams?

A: While our questions come with detailed explanations and references, we currently do not offer any additional study resources or materials alongside the practice exams. We anticipate that most candidates will already possess their own textbooks and study materials. However, we may upload supplementary resources and materials to the members' area in the future.

Q: What if I want to learn more about the subject of a specific question?

A: Questions come with detailed explanations meticulously sourced from reputable materials such as common textbooks and peer-reviewed articles. This ensures that you have a reliable roadmap to explore further into specific topics whenever needed.

Q: What subjects or topics are covered in your practice exams?  

A: Our practice exams comprehensively cover the field of nutrition, while also aligning with the structure outlined in the BCNS Domains and Content Items 2024-2028. These domains represent a wide array of topics, including Principles of Nutrition, Nutritional Biochemistry, Nutrients and Human Health, Nutrition Assessment, Clinical Intervention and Monitoring, Medical Nutrition Therapy, Public Health, and Practice Management.

Q: Will all the topics covered by the practice exams appear on my actual exam?

A: The exam content is confidential, and variations in questions are likely from one exam to another. Additionally, with only 200 questions on the exam, it's impossible to predict which specific topics will be covered. As a result, candidates may find themselves studying areas that may not be tested on the actual exam.

Q: Are your practice exam questions original?

A: Yes, all our questions are original creations. They were meticulously crafted by individuals who have successfully taken and passed the CNS exam. We have not copied questions from other sources, adhering to ethical standards. This also ensures that if you are using another source, you will know that you won’t be getting duplicate content. Should you encounter similar questions from other sources, it is likely due to coincidence.

Q. Are your practice exams only designed for CNS candidates?

A: While our primary focus is currently on CNS candidates, much of our content is relevant and beneficial to a broader range of nutritional professionals. In the future, we may expand our offerings to include specific preparation for other similar board exams. We encourage you to stay updated by checking back with us or reaching out via email for any updates on our offerings.
