2. Once you are IN the database, you will need to log into your personal account (or create one if you haven't yet.)

Please note that even though these say "Nursing School Practice Entrance Test" they are the correct practice guides for students taking the Surgical Tech, Physical Therapy Assistant, and Dental Hygiene entrance exams.
