How much does SPI Test Prep cost?

SPI Test Prep is included with all SonoSim group licenses at no additional cost.

How many SPI mock exams can my learners take?

Mock exam attempts are unlimited.

How many SPI mock exams are there?

Instead of having a static number of mock exams, we create a new mock exam dynamically every time a learner takes the exam. Each mock exam is compiled dynamically when a learner makes a new attempt.  The compilation is pull together from a pool of over 800+ questions (and growing) to create a 110-question, 2-hour timed mock exam that mimics the real SPI exam (i.e. we match the ARDMS content outline question-percentage breakdown). 

Can I track my learners' results in the Study tools?

We currently provide image acquisition visibility for all Challenge Cases and results tracking on SPI Test Prep.  We continue to expand tracking capabilities in SonoSim Performance Tracker as requested by our members.
