Inburgering exam CD's and/or DVD's

Hi everyone,

I have got a question regarding inburgering in the netherlands.

According to the IND website, one has to do the following in order to pass the inburgering exam:

• Portfolio
• Spoken Dutch Test [Toets Gesproken Nederlands]
• Practical tests (assessments) Central component
• Digital practical test [Digitale Praktijktoets]
• 'Knowledge of Dutch Society' ['Kennis van de Nederlandse Samenleving'] examination

I think that the first two parts of the above list are more general and depend upon the examiners and us about what will be presented and asked in the exam.

But for the last three parts, there must be a set number of videos, photos, conversations, and questions out of which some are shown and asked in the exams.
There are one or two sample tests available on But they are not enough for the preparation of the actual exam.

So my question is:
Does anyone know about any specific cd's and/or dvd's which are a simulation of those three parts, which cover everything or most things and help us prepare exactly in the way the actual exam is taken.

You can find some imitation exams.
These are the official ones( government). ... xamens.asp
They offer only two of the three central exams.
(Electronische praktijktoets (EPE) and Kennis van de Nederlandse Samenleving KNS))

You can find better and independant imitation exams for the Toets Gesproken Nederlands (TGN) here: ... index.html

There are also better testexams for KNS (Kennis van de Nederlandse Samenleving) in the internet:

There are three central exams, for some you can find good testexama ( TGN and KNS),
Then there is one part of the exam that you can train only with a teacher - because it is mainly conversation and there are no test-exams for this in the internet or on cd/dvd etc. You really need to find a teacher or other well trained Dutch person to help you with this.

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply...

I have ordered that book/cd from and I will go through it when it arrives.

I am taking a dutch language course in Almere (which is very costly too). But the problem is that they are teaching the dutch language in dutch and all the rest of the students in the class can already speak good dutch. So the teacher is not bothered about explaining anything in any other language... The teacher has already given us at least 8 to 10 books... There is no starting point in the course and there is no first book to start from... So, for me, taking those classes so far is just like waisting time...

I did that sample elektronisch praktijkexamen from website. In the end I got 70% marks but without that application telling me which one's I did right and which one's wrong...

While doing any other exam in the world, one can easy get the exact right material to go through and then pass the exam. This is true for the test of english as a foreign language (like IELTS and/or TOEFL). It is even true in case one is doing 'inburgering in het buitenland'.

But in this case it is perhaps only available in bits and pieces...
