The North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) is a six-hour, 250 question exam that determines whether or not an individual can practice pharmacy. Of the 250 questions, only 200 are used to assess your score and the unassessed 50 are used for research purposes. There are five different types of questions on the NAPLEX: multiple-choice, multiple response, constructed response, ordered response, and hot-spot, which will be covered extensively in whatever prep course you select. Many of the questions are scenario-based where you will see a patient profile with accompanying test questions. The minimum passing score is 75 out of the possible 150.
