Culinary Prep and Pastry Prep Courses

These courses are designed similar to an exam in a question and answer format to help students review for any culinary-related exams.

Each course includes questions covering safety and sanitation, culinary nutrition, food service industry and food preparation concepts with the pastry prep course heavier on baking and pastry questions.

The test can be taken an unlimited number of times for 30 days. New questions will be integrated each time.

Two modes are available:

  • TRYOUT mode: answer with feedback is provided immediately following each question.
  • FOR CREDIT mode: all questions are presented and feedback is provided once the exam has been submitted.
