Click on RESOURCES–>PRACTICE AMATEUR RADIO EXAMS Note: You do not need to be a licensed ham to become a member of QRZ. Registration is necessary so that we can remember which test questions you’ve taken and how best to study. If you are a licensed ham, you should also register and become a member of QRZ–there is no fee.  Every ham needs to an accurate profile on QRZ.  It’s the first place anyone goes to look up an amateur radio call sign.  Make a good impression by keeping your QRZ profile up to date!
