ServSafe Practice Tests for Managers – Updated for 7th Edition Exams Issued in 2019
Updated: September 18, 2019
These ServSafe practice tests are based on the “7th Edition ServSafe Manager” textbook and it’s supplemental updates. The questions are relevant for all ServSafe Manager exams issued in 2019 and 2020.
Be careful when using online ServSafe practice tests. Many websites have recycled old questions from the “6th Edition ServSafe Essentials” textbook.
Furthermore, there have been supplemental updates to the current 7th Edition ServSafe Manager Book due to changes in the FDA Food Code. Many websites have not incorporated those updates into their ServSafe practice tests.
More information about the changes to the ServSafe Manager curriculum can be found on the ServSafe website here: Food Code Update
