Exam Prep

Preparing for the CPAN® or CAPA® Exam

ABPANC offers a wide range of resources to help you study and prepare for the CPAN and CAPA certification exams. Read the Certification Candidate Handbook carefully and review the Test Blueprints to identify your individual learning needs. Be sure to study from a variety of sources. If you study from one or two references, or try to “cram” for the exam, you will not be adequately prepared to sit for the CPAN and CAPA certification examinations.
