Studying for the CPLP®

Friday, March 2, 2018

After obtaining my CPLP® I have recieved several questions on best practices for how best to prepare.  I've attached the image for the process that I used, also below.  By no means is preparing or taking your exams 'easy'. I'll be honest, when you get your 'big book' aka Learning System- it can be intimidating. Just remind yourself that you love this stuff and start reading- you'll likely be suprised how easy of a read it actually is (but then again I love this stuff). If it was easy... everyone would have a CPLP® behind their name.  That's why I chose to do it... I didn't want what everyone could say they had... Richard Stange, CPLP®

8 TO 4 MONTHS PRIOR

Read through the ATD Learning System. Highlight and make notes.

2 TO 4 MONTHS PRIOR

Take practice quizzes in the ATD Learning System. Make notecards of words and topics missed. Note topics where you were not 100% confident. Move on to the next quiz only when you answer them all correctly.

1 TO 2 MONTHS PRIOR

Take the practice exam on ATD’s website. Continue to review tough topics, practice quizzes and notecards.

THE TESTS

Take your time. On the second test make sure to calculate how much time you have for each scenario. Move on to the next scenario when that time has passed.

 

This is not a fail-safe way to study for the exams nor is it the only way. It is my personal way for how I achieved the credential of CPLP®
