As of 2017, there will only be "general" passages on the ATA certification exam.
The practice test is an optional part of the certification
program. The practice test consists of one passage from a previous year's certification
exam and is designed to provide a practical introduction to the nature of the
exam and how the graders mark, as well as an indication of whether the candidate
has a reasonable chance of passing the exam. Practice tests are available for
$ per passage. The translated passage will be graded and returned with comments
from a grader in the certification program. (Allow at least 6-8 weeks for test results.)
