CFP® Exam Preparation

Take the CFP® exam with confidence. We've compiled the resources and strategies below to help you prepare for the exam and give you an idea of the kinds of questions you'll be asked. With the right preparation, you can increase your chances of success.


Practice Exam

As you prepare for the CFP® exam, it's important that you take as many practice questions as possible. There are two, full-length, 170-question Practice Exams available from CFP Board, composed of authentic questions that cover all CFP® exam topic areas.

Connect with a mentor

Mentors are CFP® professionals who can support you in preparing for the CFP® exam. They know what you’re going through — and can help you stay on track, offer advice and provide encouragement.

Enrollment to participate in the Mentor Program is open for two weeks at the beginning of each exam registration period.
