The Cicerone Certification Program (CCP) recently released recommended "Key Resources" you need to study to pass the exam for the Advanced Cicerone (AC) exam, as well as every other level of the program (Certified Beer Server (CBS), Certified Cicerone (CC), and Master Cicerone (MC))
Let's look at what study resources the CCP recommends for the third level of the program, Advanced Cicerone. If you're taking the AC exam you've already passed the CC exam and know that it's a pretty difficult test. The CC exam's passage rate is less than 40%, about 1 in 3. That's worse than the NY or CA State Bar Exams. The AC exam's pass rate is likely to be similar at best. So, while the CCP says, "while it is not mandatory to review all of these resources in preparation for our exams, we hope candidates can utilize this list in conjunction with the syllabi to focus their studies," I would recommend reading and studying all of these resources. If you're taking the AC exam, you're probably already on board with that!
