What do you want to learn today?


The NAB Study Guide provides an outline of all the various materials you need to know, plus provides tips on how to study for the exam.  There is an extensive glossary of terms, a few real-life scenarios, and a sampling of practice questions that are similar to those you will find on the examination.

One of the study guide’s most valuable assets is the compilation of all the various books, websites and other material you will need to master in order to pass your examination. 

The Guide will function as the framework for your studies.  It will help you navigate the preparation process. The study guide is not intended to be a single source in preparing for the exam; rather it is to be used as a guide to sort through the considerable body of knowledge that administrators must know to function successfully in their chosen arena.

While everyone is different, a typical study path may look like this:

  • Begin with the NAB “Information for Candidates Handbook” from the NAB website.
  • Next, begin the NAB Study Guide.  Take the time to go through all sections of the NAB Study Guide thoroughly.
  • Conduct the research required in the Resources tab. A timely and relevant collection of references is there for you.
  • After you have completed your research, return to the Study Guide and assess your level of preparedness. Are you confident in your level of knowledge of the principles? Are you ready for the exam or do you need additional study? Preparing is an iterative process for most.
  • As a final measure, you may want to consider taking one or more of the NAB practice exams which provide a micro experience of the actual exam and a reasonable measure of your preparedness for success.

Thank you and best wishes for a successful career.
