The UExcel Business Law examination is based on material typically taught in an introductory, one-semester, three-credit undergraduate course in business law. The content of the examination corresponds with course offerings such as Introduction to Business Law or Business Law I. This examination measures knowledge and understanding of business law in pursuit of organizational goals and strategies. It specifically tests for a familiarity with the key legal issues and terms related to business law as well as for an application of the legal tools needed to deal with real world legal/business issues within the US legal environment. The examination measures the ability to understand sources of law, dispute resolution, business ethics, criminal law as it relates to business, tort law, contracts, agency law, the various types of business organizations, and matters of real and intellectual property under United States law. No prior knowledge of business law is required for this examination. (Multiple-choice examination)

Using the practice questions: To help you study, a practice exam with two sets of questions is available for purchase with this exam. (See purchase details below.) Note there will be fewer questions on the practice exams. Generally, the practice questions will not be the same as the ones you will see when you take the actual exam for credit. They are intended to expose you to the types of questions you’ll encounter in the actual exam. Practice questions are a tool, and do not provide a full exam experience. For example, the practice question sets do not have time limitations. Begin with the Content Guide, especially the detailed content outline. Memorizing specific questions and answers on the practice sets is not as effective as using the questions to practice, along with the content outline, to see which concepts you may need to study further.

A practice exam is available for $35: To register for a practice exam, visit www.excelsior.edu and log into your MyExcelsior account. You must be registered for the corresponding credit-bearing exam first before you can register for the practice exam.
