“How you study for the exam will depend on whether you are taking the course through an AFIP-approved training provider or on your own via a self-study regimen.
• Training Provider
The AFIP-approved training partners often have their own methods of preparing candidates for the exam, which may include classroom instruction and regular formal reviews of the material. You should contact your training provider (the company from which you ordered the materials) for more information about how the course will be structured. Your training provider will supply the mentor responsible for guiding you through the certification process.
• Self-Study Regimen
The course text is designed for self-study. When you receive your materials, you should allow 40 hours over six to eight weeks to prepare for the exam.
Start with the course syllabus. Read the introductory material in the syllabus for more information on how to use it. The following is a brief overview. For each section, read the chapter outline called “What Do I Need to Know About this Section?” This will prepare you for what is to come. Then, read the portion of the course text that goes with that section and the required reading on your “Required Supplemental Reading” CD (listed at the beginning of each section). Listen/view the portion of the audio or video lecture series that goes with that chapter. When you feel comfortable with the material, go back to the syllabus to take the section quiz.
You should receive a pre-test review, either from your mentor or from AFIP. After your review, you should be prepared to pass the test. If you have any questions, your mentor or AFIP will provide assistance.
• AFIP Certification Boot Camps
This fast-track method to certification; available for Basic, Senior, and Master candidates, allows you to complete the process – including the exam – in 2 days. Three weeks of self-study in preparation for the Boot Camp is recommended. Check the calendar for upcoming events or call 817.428.2434 to schedule a Boot Camp. “
