Practice Exam Features

SAS designs its practice exams to be similar in section balance and difficulty to the actual SAS exams. Practice exams offer an extend time limit (six hours) to allow you to complete the exam at your convenience. You may pause the practice exam to finish at your convenience. You have 90 days to complete the practice exam from the date of purchase.

At the end of the practice exam, a dynamic score report provides practice exam performance detail and the ability to review all questions. You may also review this score report online by logging into your Pearson VUE web account at www.pearsonvue.com/sas and selecting "View Score Reports."

Cancellation Policy: SAS practice exams may be canceled for a full refund anytime before the candidate begins the exam. Once an exam has begun, no refunds are granted.
