Testimonial from a CSP Exam Prep Course Enrollee:
“I am so thankful for the CSP Exam Prep course that ProCE & NASP have put together. When I decided to take the exam, I searched for an exam prep class, or book, and found nothing. When I found this, I was very excited. After completing the course, I have nothing but great things to say! The presenters were very thorough and the review was comprehensive. Included in each presentation are useful tables and charts that can be printed and used to study. The review course really helped me narrow my focus to review the most pertinent topics and highlighted key pieces that would be most important for exam takers. I am confident that this course will help me pass the exam when I take it next month!”
