    1. 1. Welcome to CBNC’s Examination Tutorial Click on the blue button below with your left mouse button to move to the next screen.
    2. 2. This tutorial provides a demonstration on how to move through the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology (CBNC) examinations. It also shows samples of what the exam questions will look like and presents general information about CBNC exams. This tutorial is designed to introduce you to the format of the examination – it is not a study tool. This demo is not timed and many of the buttons are not programmed to be functional. On exam day, the exam will be preceded by a different tutorial. The exam day tutorial will look much like this demo and buttons will be functional. That tutorial will be timed and you will have 15 minutes to complete it before the exam begins. Additional instructions will be given at the site regarding testing procedures. Special note: for the 2006 exams, no gated or cine images will be included. Portions of this tutorial represent real screenshots from Thomson Prometric Exam forms and are copyrighted by Thomson Prometric. Click on the “ Next ” button below to continue. CBNC Exam Tutorials
    3. 3. <ul><li>The CBNC Certification Examination consists of 175 questions. Examinees will have four hours and thirty minutes to complete the Certification Examination. </li></ul><ul><li>The CBNC Recertification Examination consists of 100 questions. Examinees will have three hours to complete the Recertification Examination. </li></ul><ul><li>Each question on the examinations is followed by four possible answers or completions. Only one (1) of these is the best answer. Your score is based on the number of questions you answer correctly. There is no penalty for guessing. You should try to answer every question, even if you must guess. </li></ul><ul><li>Click on the “ Next ” button and let’s get started with the tutorial! </li></ul>The CBNC Examinations
    4. 4. The Tutorial and Exam question screens provide useful information. In the lower left corner, where the green arrow is pointing, you can see which screen (or in the exam, which question) you are on. You can also see how much time remains. In this tutorial, the time graphic will not change. The actual exam will have real-time information indicating how much time is left to complete the exam. In this example, the screen indicates that there are 9 minutes and 44 seconds remaining. If the screen read 2:9:44, this would mean that there were 2 hours, 9 minutes and 44 seconds left to complete the exam. Click on the “ Next ” button below to continue. Information About the Screens
    5. 5. Although you may be very familiar with how to navigate around a computer screen, the next few screens will address actions available for moving through the tutorial and examination. The mouse pointer is used for all actions in the exam. The mouse “pointer” moves when you move the mouse around on a surface. Although it can assume different shapes, the arrow shown above is common. To point with the mouse, move the pointer until it rests on the desired object. To click something, point to the object and then press and quickly release the left mouse button. Practice: Rest your hand lightly on the mouse and move it. Note how the pointer moves as your hand does. Point to the correct answer (A) on the sample question below and click. You can click anywhere in the answer. Notice that the open circle next to the answer you chose is now filled in. Sample Question  A. Correct answer  B. Incorrect answer Click on the 'Next ' button to continue. Using the Mouse
    6. 6. Although you may be very familiar with how to navigate around a computer screen, the next few screens will address actions available for moving through the tutorial and examination.

    8. 8. You will use the mouse to move through the exam one question at a time. The “ Previous ” and “ Next ” buttons can be found at the bottom of the screen throughout the exam. To move one screen backward, click the Previous button. To move one screen forward, click the Next button. Click on the 'Next ' button below to continue with this tutorial. Moving Through the Exam
    9. 9. A “scroll bar” appears on screen when a question or exhibit doesn't fit on a single screen. Scroll bars may be horizontal or vertical. This function enables you to move up or down, right or left within the screen. To scroll through the screen contents, click the scroll arrow that points in the direction you want to move. This will move you a short distance on your screen. Click on the 'Next ' button to continue. Using the Scroll Function
    10. 10. Your score is determined by the number of questions you answer correctly. There is no penalty for guessing. Therefore it is to your advantage to answer every question. Whether you answer a question or leave it blank, you may want to come back to it at a later time. To help you do this, you may “mark” the question. You can “unmark” the question at any time also. Marked questions will show as such on a Review Table (discussed shortly) and also with the red “Marked” button on the individual question. The next screen will show you what these buttons look like. Click on the 'Next ' button to continue. Marking Questions
    11. 11. To mark a question: When you click the Mark button, it will turn Red and read “Marked”. To unmark a question: When you click the Marked button, it will change back to “Mark”. This Marked button will only appear if you previously have marked the question. You may mark or unmark questions as you wish, so that you may identify them as questions that you want to review again at a later time. The scoring process does not differentiate between marked and unmarked questions. Click on the 'Next ' button to continue . Marking Questions for Later Review
    12. 12. Review Table At any time during the exam, you can see which questions you’ve answered, skipped, or marked for later review. To do so, simply click on the “Review” button at the bottom of the screen. This will bring up a Review Table. The next screen will show what a Review Table looks like. Click on the “ Next ” button below to continue. Using the Review Table
    13. 13. Review Table: Sample and Legend When you are in the Review Table screen, you can return to the last question you were working on or move to any other question by double clicking (e.g., pressing your left mouse button twice) on the question number in the table. Click the “ Next ” button to continue. Below is a sample of a Review Table on an exam with five (5) questions. The key for the symbols in front of each question is below the table.

    15. 15. When you see the Review Table, 3 buttons appear at the bottom (shown here at right). “ Review All ” button: Select if you want to go back and review all the questions. You will be moved back into the exam, to the first question. Clicking on the “Next” button will then move you to the next question. “ Review Marked ” button: Select if you want to review only the questions you marked. You will be moved to the first marked question. Clicking on the “Next” button will then move you to the next marked question. “ Review Incomplete ” button: Select if you want to review the questions you did not complete. You will be moved to the first incomplete question. Clicking on the “Next” button will then move you to the next incomplete question. Click on the 'Next ' button to continue. More on Using the Review Table
    16. 16. You will see a row of buttons at the top of your screen with each question. This is the “ Exhibit Bar ”, indicated here by the green arrow. The buttons on the exhibit bar link to graphics and images that are included with some of the questions. These images and graphics are referred to as “exhibits”. When the question contains an exhibit of that type, the button on the bar will appear blue . If the question has no exhibits of that type, the button will be grey . The bar on this sample screen indicates that: 1. There are LVEF and Figure exhibits that are part of this question (when you click on these buttons during the exam, an image would appear in an exhibit window.) 2. There are no ECG or Slices exhibits (nothing would happen when you click on these buttons). Not all buttons will be active for every question. Some questions will have no exhibits at all. In this case, all buttons will appear grey. Click the “ Next ” button to continue. Using the Exhibit Buttons
    17. 17. The exhibits contain the images, graphics, tables and other information necessary to answer the question. When you click on the button for the exhibit, the graphic will appear in a new window. In this example, the bar indicates that a Figure exhibit would be part of the question. Because all of the other exhibit buttons are greyed out, this indicates that no exhibit of those types is used with this question. Click on the “Figure” button to show how a figure exhibit would appear in a new window. (This figure is not indicative of the quality of images on the examination.) Click the “ Next ” button to continue. Using the Exhibit Buttons

You will be asked to confirm that everything on this screen is correct by clicking on a “Yes” button. If any part of the information is incorrect, you will need to raise your hand and inform a proctor immediately. Confidentiality Agreement After you have confirmed your identity, you will see a screen which requires you to agree to a confidentiality statement regarding examination contents.

You will receive your score by mail in early–mid December. The examinations must be reviewed by a committee after they have been scored. Questions are discarded if they do not meet predefined performance criteria. If a statistical evaluation raises a concern about the validity of a question (for example, if many examinees consistently give a response other than the “correct” one), these questions are individually reviewed again to make sure they are accurate. When inaccuracies are identified, these questions may be re-scored or discarded. Click on the “ Next ” button to continue. Scoring the Examinations
    29. 29. Following are sample questions designed to give you a feel for how the Examination Questions will look. The correct answers are provided at the end of the tutorial.
