Practice Questions

NAQT sells tournament questions from previous years as practice material, and has sample packets from each of its kinds of packet sets available for download.

These questions are not licensed for use at events involving teams from multiple schools; they are restricted to events for teams from a single school (most commonly practice sessions or intramural tournaments). To secure questions with an interscholastic license, call 1‑888‑411‑6278 (“NAQT”) or e-mail hosting@naqt.com.

Choose the level of competition for which you want to see sets:

To order, click the boxes to the left of the sets you want and then click the SUBMIT button at the bottom of the page. You will be shown a summary of your order and asked for shipping and billing information at that point.
