NET Practice Questions

NET practice questions within the test are designed to determine if a candidate has deficiencies in general academic subjects, such as math, science, reading comprehension, and grammar. The questions mirror, both in content and format, the ones on the entrance exams of various healthcare programs. Depending upon the subject matter, NET practice questions present a paragraph on a particular topic and four statements or choices from which to select an answer based on some aspect of the text. The math questions pose a problem that requires some sort of calculation and four possible answers.

NET practice questions evaluate sentence structure, spelling proficiency, use of pronouns, subject/verb agreement, capitalization, and punctuation. They also determine the ability to organize thoughts, analyze ideas, and express them clearly and coherently in a written format. A few samples of NET practice questions follow:
