Section A Examination 

The American Board of Prosthodontics Section A Examination is a criterion-referenced examination constructed through the coordinated efforts of ABP directors and psychometric experts. This computer-based examination is given at regional testing centers and aims to measure the knowledge and skills of qualified candidates. A resultant test score is a measure of how well a candidate performs in relation to the test items rather than the performance of other candidates. The content of the examination gives due consideration to the Commission of Dental Accreditation (CODA) Standards for Advanced Specialty Education Programs in Prosthodontics. 

Section A General Information 

Candidates are provided four (4) hours to complete the Section A Examination, which typically consists of two hundred (200) multiple-choice questions that may require review of images, diagrams, or short videos appearing with the questions.
