CCFP STUDY RESOURCES
How do I study for the CCFP exam?
There are many resources out there to help you prepare for the CCFP exam.
From the feedback we receive from our attendees, most recommend preparing early on in your residency.
The Review Course does not replace studying and you will need to spend time preparing for the exam on your own. However, we teach you what to focus on, highlight the important Canadian guidelines, help you with easy-to-remember pearls, and give you strategies and tools to prepare for the exam.
Some attendees recommend taking The Review Course as early as possible to help guide their studying. Others prefer to have it as a sort of final review of all 105 topics prior to the exam. It all depends on your study style.
Whatever you choose, we recommend starting the studying process early, studying with others and using a mix of resources. Check out the list below for the top resources.
