The importance of the FSCA’s RE Preparation Guide

The Preparation Guide outlines exactly what the examination will be testing and where to find the information.

Studying the Preparation Guide is in fact the very first step a candidate should take to ensure that he or she knows what they have to know, and where to find the required information. This is the best approach to follow when planning and preparing for the Regulatory Examination as it is highly effective and does result in a better outcome.

The qualifying criteria provide the basis of knowledge and skills against which the regulatory examinations are set. Only questions based on these criteria will be included in the exams.

Students are therefore advised to download and use the FSCA Preparation Guide.
