Study Sessions sponsored by CWEA local sections are
a good way to prepare for your test. There is usually
at least one session in northern California, southern
California, and Michigan. The dates vary, but are usually
within one month of the test date. Information about
all study sessions is mailed to certificate applicants.
The Study Guides summarize the basic subject areas (called
"Skill Sets") and giving specific reading
assignments from a limited set of outside training books.
A complete diagnostic test is also included. In a sense,
the Study Guides are like an "instructor on paper"
who goes over basic concepts, assigns reading, and gives
Resources for Certificate Candidates

No need to memorize these formulas because they are
given on the test (you should know how to use them though).
