Training for the Exam
NALS online mock examinations are computer-based tests that approximate the structure of our national certification exams. Each exam part is static and designed to assist the participant with proper exam preparation. The mock exams for the ALP, CLP, and PP Exams contain more questions than the actual exam and are available to the purchaser for 60-days at a time.
Each textbook required for the exams are utilized (e.g., The Bluebook, NALS Advanced Manual for the Legal Professional, etc.). Each question contains a reference cited to the materials. The practice exam will deliver a score report, via email, to the candidate after the mock exam is submitted and/or finished. Please note the exam questions on the ALP, CLP, PP mock exams are designed to be hard. Do not get discouraged. Use this study tool to become familiar with the required texts. A passing performance on the ALP, CLP or PP mock examinations does not guarantee a passing score on the ALP, CLP or PP exam(s).
