Online Practice Latent Image Simulations for the NCMHCE
- Authentic in design and structure
- Accurately reproduces NCMHCE look and feel
- Realistic simulation IG & DM questions
The National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination (NCMHCE) is made up of a
series of Case Simulations.
Each simulation is designed to
- Cover NCMHCE competency areas (content based)
- Assess the clinicians problem solving abilities in terms of:
- Treating clinical problems
- Professional Practice/Ethics/Consultation and Supervision
Each NCMHCE Exam is made up of 10 simulations which are divided into 5-8 sections.
Each section is categorized as either an Information Gathering activity (IG) or a
Decision Making activity (DM). You must have a passing score in each category to pass the exam.
Information Gathering activity (IG)
During the information gathering process you gather information to answer the questions
that have been posed in that section. When you believe you have enough information,
for example for a provisional diagnosis, you stop selecting responses in that section.
Decision Making activity (DM)
In the decision making section you are asked to make clinical judgments or decisions about
treatment planning, testing, diagnosing or other areas the clinician faces in any case.
Every choice you make has a value, you lose points for selecting responses that are deemed not
appropriate, or relevant to the question that has been posed. For example, a correct response
might give you 2 points, while an incorrect choice would subtract 2 points from your overall score.
It is very important that you do not guess or uncover responses you do not think answer the
question you have been asked, you could lose points and fail the exam. This is why preparing with PTIs
ExamAce™ helps you make the right choices.
We look forward to helping you pass the NCMHCE!
