CIPP/US Exam

Postby slucas8 » Fri Feb 16, 2018 2:19 pm

I enrolled to take the CIPP/US exam and have no idea how long I need to study to pass. I am barred in California and have been doing privacy legal work for about a year now. Any insight is greatly appreciated!

It's a fairly easy test, particularly if you do privacy work. I skimmed the book and took the practice questions and was fine.

I took this during my 1L Christmas break. I spent maybe 40hrs studying for it (using the book from IAPP) and passed no problem. I imagine that someone with experience could pass with less study time.

Reading the text and taking the practice exam they offer was enough for me. It's not super technical like the other two exams.
