New and Improved – Continuous Access to Online Certification Examination Study Materials Until Each Student Passes! 

Students will now have the ability to access valuable resources that will be continually updated vs. paying to purchase the materials one-time outright.  In the past, students may have waited to purchase the course until they started studying for the exam.  Our hope with this new delivery is that students will begin reviewing the materials during their first year and have continual access until they have passed the exam.  Because the practice questions will be updated as they are created, students will always have the most up -to-date materials available to them.

The cost will remain the same; however, the value will increase as additional material will be added to the course throughout each year.  This includes additional supplemental study materials as well as new study questions by content area.


"The study course that the AAPA has was the only thing I used and I thought it prepared me very well for the exam!" - Megan Demske, PA(ASCP), 2016 Rosalind Franklin University graduate

"The study course was all I needed to pass the exam." - Michelle Robben, PA(ASCP), 2015 Rosalind Franklin University graduate

“The primary material I used to study for the Certification Exam was the exam study course made by the AAPA, and I would recommend the study course to everyone! I found the organization of the content into review, definitions, quizzes, and additional resources to be very beneficial. I mainly studied from the quizzes, as I felt they most adequately prepared me for the types of questions that would be on the exam - in fact, I think a handful of the questions were actually on my official exam! The quizzes are broken down by chapters in Robbins and are a great way to gauge what material you know well and what material you may need to review. Overall, the AAPA exam study course was my best friend when studying for the certification exam and I would highly recommend it to anyone studying to take the exam! “    -Karah Jones, PA(ASCP), 2016 University of Maryland graduate
