CCFP Exam - FREE Study Resources for SOOs and SAMPs (Updated March 2019)
Please report any broken links.
Free, high quality, and exam relevant, what could be better?
It is essential that you find your own particular study methods for the exam but no matter who you are you need to review the CFPC website and Resources (listed below). Doing the sample CFPC SAMPs on the website at least once is a must. We recommend doing a few SAMPs right at the start of residency to get a flavour of the level of difficulty and the style of the examination.

EXAM PREPARATION TIP
In the first month of your residency spend an hour or two familiarizing yourself with the exam structure using some of the free CFPC resources. Knowing the way your knowledge is expected to be regurgitated on exam day will help you study throughout your residency. A great way to continue to be reminded of the exam style and to keep on top of studying is to sign up for The Review Course email list so you receive our free study tips all year long.
