3. IAAP CAP Study Guide – “If you are planning to sit for the IAAP Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) exam, prepare with the IAAP CAP Study Guide. This all-new study aid will help you navigate through information as you prepare for the CAP. To be eligible to sit for the CAP exam, IAAP requires a combination of education and/or years of experience. If you qualify, a significant amount of preparation is required due to the breadth and depth of the information covered. The IAAP CAP Study Guide takes the CAP exam's Body of Knowledge and provides candidates with a foundation to prepare for the exam. Since the certification exam is based on information, skills and goals within a profession, no one source will completely prepare an individual to sit for the CAP and guarantee a passing score. However, IAAP CAP Study Guide, written by subject matter experts, delves into the seven domains and their performance outcomes, recommends additional resources to help you create your individual exam preparation plan. This study guide was made possible by a generous grant from The Foundation of IAAP. Disclaimer: The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) does not endorse any study materials, groups, or exam preparation courses. The IAAP Certified Administrative Professional Study Guide - Preparation Reference for 2016 CAP Exam was developed by subject-matter experts using the IAAP CAP Body of Knowledge who did not have access to or knowledge of current CAP Exam questions. The IAAP Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) exam is governed by the Certification Advisory Board (CAB) whose members are not involved with the development or administration of any preparatory resource. The CAP Study Tools mentioned on the IAAP Website are for reference only and do not guarantee success on the examination. IAAP's goal is to provide candidates with access to a variety of quality preparation options.”
