The Examination in Marital and Family Therapy (commonly known as the MFT exam) is administered by the Association of Marital and Family Therapy Regulatory Board. Several jurisdictions require prospective marital and family therapists to pass this exam in order to obtain licensure.
The format of the MFT exam is straightforward. It is composed of 200 multiple-choice questions, each of which has four answer choices.

MFT Exam Practice Questions
All of the questions have been composed and edited by experts, and are meant to correlate with the knowledge and skills required for practice as a marital and family therapist. Your MFT exam score is based on the number of questions you answered correctly.
There is no distinction between unanswered questions and questions answered incorrectly, so you should make your best guess on every question. The minimum passing score varies by jurisdiction. The MFT exam is administered by Prometric during the three open testing periods of each year.
