To help prepare for the CCEP exam, CCB provides candidates with a “Detailed Content Outline” specific to the CCEP exam.
The outline contains:
The areas and tasks that will be tested in the CCEP® examination.
The number of questions on the exam from each of the three cognitive levels and subject areas.
The examination will be scored on participants’ responses to 115 multiple-choice questions spread across all subject areas.
The numbers on the right side of each section of the outline indicate:
Recall: the number of questions that require recollection of specific knowledge related to the subject area. This number is part of the total.
Application: the number of questions that require application of recalled knowledge to discern the final answer. This number is part of the total.
Analysis: the number of questions that require the analysis of a situation to determine a proper action listed among several choices. This number is part of the total.
Total: the total number of questions from the subject area that will appear on the exam.
