Quiz Time: General Insurance Exam Practice Test!

This practice exam covers general insurance concepts. It is designed to help you evaluate your comprehension of the general insurance concepts for which you will be tested in your insurance license qualification exam. The questions are intended to resemble the types of queries and the range of content on your insurance license qualification exam; however, because insurance license exam questions are kept strictly confidential, you should not expect these questions to be the same as those you will see on your actual exam. Instead, this practice exam is designed to help you evaluate how well you understand the general insurance concepts presented in this book.
