Hello everyone,
Question: Does the BPI written exam consist of essay questions or is there a combination of question types? Thank you for any input.

Mike, have you looked at the flash cards Frank Robbins created to study for BPI?

Looks like they are still alive.

I just took the BPI exams.  There were two 100 question tests, each multiple choice.  I can tell you to study hard, the questions are less about memorizing key words and more about understanding and applying the concepts.  Good Luck!

BPI Written exams are Multiple choice.  The written exam is often done online depending on your affiliate/facilities.

As the others have said multiple choice, and not to difficult
 
I have attached a set for the BA to give you an idea of the layout, types of questions, etc...

SLS, Thanks,
I was reading while it printed and saw some I have never seen.  I will make some notes and see if they get mentioned in class.

Something funny, you mention BA.  I'm all signed up and paid and have no idea what they are teaching, LOL.  It is just being offered as the "required" BPI bridging class.  I would assume BA, but it is not stated or I didn't see it.  It may turn out to be a new certification, BPI-ME.

I have to agree with Phil. The test is definitely more application than memorization. I would recommend signing up for a training course. You don't want to barely pass the test and be clueless out in the field. You ultimately want to be a professional, an expert. So do it right, study hard, and succeed!

I just completed the 100 question BPI exam and one of the obvious observations is, they may have 10,000 questions to choose from, but there are probably less than 1,000 facts you need to know.  For each fact you learn and understand, you can answer 10 of their questions.  Many of the questions I had were just different wrong answers mixed in with the correct choice.  Learning the and understanding the facts is actually the short cut :).
