Coverage and Reviewer

If you are looking for an effective reviewer for the upcoming AFPSAT, we recommend the AFPSAT Reviewer with Neuro-Psychiatric Test Samples book. It is available in Shopee and can be paid through the Cash on Delivery option. This is good review material if you are willing to spend money on your review, otherwise, use our free online reviewer below.

Like any other AFPSAT exam in the past, the AFPSAT for 2022 will cover the following subjects in a 150-question test in multiple-choice format. This examination is not that hard but the real deal here is the time limit. Each of the covered subjects has a duration of 30 minutes. It means you only have about 1 and a half minutes to answer each question.
