There are 120 questions on the NASM exam, 20 of which are for pre-trial research purposes and not scored; these questions may appear on future exams as scored items. Candidates will not know which questions are scored and which are not, so it is better to put forth best effort on each question. Candidates will get their results as soon as the test is finished.
