Can someone guide me on how to prepare for CIPT. I have been asked by work to clear the certification in a month. I went through the site and found references to authoritative sources, but still confused on how to prepare. can someone list out the texts that i need to study. Given the crunch timeline, I will appreciate the guidance i can get.

    I recently took the CIPM & CIPP/US. You need the official IAPP textbook for both exams since the exams are created based off of the textbooks. You get them as part of an official training course, but I never did see on their site where to buy just the books individually. My suggestion is to call & ask them. It's usually a standard ISBN # that you can search online to find it cheaper than directly from IAPP. My best guess just glancing through their site right now is

    Privacy in Technology: Standards and Practices for Engineers and Security and IT - https://my.iapp.org/NC__Product?id=a191a000000QL2eAAG

    But that's a guess. Call them up & then order from the cheapest online store you can find with quick shipping.

    Err... not terribly difficult to find the proper resources on their site.

    You need to purchase the textbook associated with whatever exam you're interested in pursing. These can be found here: https://iapp.org/train/books/

    Good luck.

    Firstly thank you for your responses. And the first thing i did was visit the site and go through the recommended texts. Now they list out a few books as authoritative texts and a few others as recommended? My question is do i need to read through all of the authoritative texts or one of them and similarly for recommendation?

    Only one of them is the actual textbook for the official training course. You'll need to ask them which one it is.

    For CIPP or CIPT, do we need to buy the Foundations book?

    Hi! Have you taken the CIPT yet?

    There no longer is a separate Foundations exam. Everything, at least where the CIPP is concerned, is rolled into one. The CIPP/US book provides background in the early chapters and I think that suffices as foundation knowledge.
