  • Why offer an “exam only” option? Don’t I need the book to complete the exam?
    This option is for professionals who already have the book, access to the book (i.e., through sharing or borrowing), or wish to order the book from another vendor such as amazon. You do need to have access to the book to complete the exam. If you order the book through us, simply select the "Exam & Kindle eBook" or "Exam & Book" from the "Make It Mine" dropdown menu when completing your order.
  • Can I share the exam with colleagues?
    No. Each professional must purchase their own exam. Exams are not transferable or shareable. If an individual attempts to submit exam answers (which they did not purchase), then the continuing education units and certificate of completion will be deemed invalid and reported to the CBDM.
