Certification in Control Self-Assessment® (CCSA®) Exam Preparation Resources
CCSA Study Guide
The IIA publishes a CCSA study guide to assist candidates in preparing for the exam. It is available through The IIA Research Foundation Bookstore. The guide provides a general overview of the topics that will be covered in the exam. However, it is critical that candidates perform additional study in areas where their experience or background dictates the need for additional review. A list of reference materials is included in the study guide to provide additional resources to supplement your studies.
