At NCCAOM, we place a high value on helping you become as prepared as possible for the National Board Exams, which requires a scaled score of seventy (70) to pass. We want you to walk out of the real exam confident and knowing that your time preparing with NCCAOM was worthwhile!

The Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine, and Chinese Herbology certification programs each have a comprehensive NCCAOM Candidate Preparation Handbook containing all the information a candidate (approved applicant) needs to prepare for the NCCAOM exams. In addition, the NCCAOM Exam Content Outlines are available in English, Chinese and Korean language for each module. Please click the appropriate tile below to access Exam Content Outlines and Preparation Handbooks.

Official NCCAOM Practice Tests™ now available: Practice makes perfect, and we can assist you with that goal! Frequency, accuracy, and reinforcement of practice exams are needed. Test your readiness for testing by simulating the format and flow of the real exam using the only practice tests available with questions developed using the same methodology as the exam itself.
