Study Resources and References

The CAPP Certification Board provides a suggested reference list as a resource that may be useful to supplement the education and experience related to competent performance as a CAPP. Candidates are encouraged to review resources and information in content areas where skills or knowledge may be weak. The CAPP Certification Board does not recommend that candidates memorize all recommended references. The information tested on the examination pertains to the common body of knowledge that is delineated in the CAPP Examination Content Outline.

The CAPP Certification Board does not endorse any particular text or author. This list is not intended to be inclusive but reflects references used to support the test development process. Use of the references during study for the CAPP exam does not guarantee successful performance on the examination.
