2021 Cert Exam - Sample Virtual DP Items

Section 4 of the 2021 ABD Certification Exam contains 37 items that use a virtual dermatopathology (VDP) viewer. To allow candidates to practice with the VDP viewer prior to the exam, the ABD published a set of 5 sample items. 

For best results, and to simulate the exam day experience, access this exercise from a computer using the CHROME or FIREFOX browser. It is not recommended that candidates use a mobile phone or tablet to practice since the exam will not be administered on those devices. 

Disclaimer: The five items contained in this exercise are not intended to represent the content included on the exam or the expected level of difficulty of the questions.
