RPR Reference Materials

I spoke to an NCRA representative today to get some advice on what to study for the upcoming examination. She told me that a new study guide was slated to come out this year, although she wasn’t certain of the exact date, as it has not been announced yet. She also directed me to a part of the website that lists the following materials as references for the written knowledge part of the test:
