Virtual simulated office oral candidate training resources
The following resources (in video, audio, and written formats) have been developed to help candidates prepare for the virtual simulated office oral (SOO) exam day.
They will be updated annually before the spring exam.
Please note that starting with the fall 2022 exam, the component of the virtual SOO called the Administration time, will be referred to as the Assessment time.

Please note that since this is not a real exam, two important features will not be available:
- You will not be able to connect your camera, so there will be no video image of you or the examiner
- There will be no timed components of the exam (Reading, Assessment, and Marking time), so you will not see the countdown clock on the yellow ribbon.
