Exam Info and ABPN MOC Exam Pass Rate

The Psychiatry MOC Exam is a computer-based exam consisting of 220 multiple-choice questions (MCQ) administered in four sections with 50-60 questions in each section.

The exam lasts approximately 5 hours including optional breaks between each section.

Question Focus and Test Timing

We strongly suggest focusing on the major categories: depressive/bipolar, psychotic, substance, anxiety, and personality (each of those categories are 11% or more of the exam). The feedback from the exam is that there is an ample amount of time per question and that it’s not a very difficult test as long as students focus on the key categories.

Our ABPN practice test question bank covers the major topics that you will encounter on the MOC exam.

The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBNP OCC continuous certification exam. Additional test prep resources may be available via the APA.
