CIPT Exam Review

PrivacyPrivacy Posts: 9Banned ■□□□□□□□□□
Took my first IAPP exam which was the CIPT I only used the official course book to study for it. I passed the exam but I have to say was surprised about the exam.

Firstly there were a lot of questions that covered areas that were not mentioned at all in the book I expect one or two but there was a lot. I also expected to see questions where two answers both look correct which I did but some questions it appeared all four were the correct answer.

Also had quite a few scenario questions which involved reading a large text then answering a few questions on that text only compliant was a few questions could be answered without even reading the scenario so not sure of the point of that.

I did think the book was short and now I have done the exam I see it did not completely cover the exam.

    This is alarming. I am testing next week. What else should I be studying?

    How did your exam go? Do you have any successes to share? I was unsuccessful in my first attempt, so I am hoping to learn from others if there was some resource that was particularly helpful. I found the same as Privacy - there was a lot on the exam that was not covered in the text.

    The IAPP does warn you in text buried somewhere on their site that you are expected to keep up with privacy news. So, it is expected to find scenarios and/or questions that aren't in the books. I definitely encountered the same thing during the CIPP/US exam.

    Any more info on CIPT? I've booked to take it at the end of the month.

    I attended an IAPP CIPT course last week and am now going through the text book. I've previously passed CIPM & CIPP/E and on initial review it feels like the CIPT will be straightforward (I scored 20/25 on the practice paper prior to reviewing text etc) but am worried I'm missing something.

    As the text book is very US focussed and written prior to GDPR, I presume there will be little, if any GDPR questions? However, I am pretty clued up on this anyway so hopefully OK.

    Just want to know if CIPM, CIPP/E and attending the CIPT course followed by reading the text book is a good base to take the exam
