WHAT WILL I STUDY?
The APICS CSCP Learning System is divided into three modules across five books that reflect the entire APICS CSCP Exam
Content Manual (ECM).
The reading materials not only explain ECM concepts, but also provide you with real-world examples of the concepts in action.
You will learn the latest best practices to elevate your job performance and help you take advantage of common technologies.
The knowledge you gain through these materials will help you drive improvement in your organization, maximize the efficiency of
planning and operations, and improve the bottom line.
Each learning module is available in print and e-reader format. Progress check questions are included at the end of each chapter to
ensure you are retaining the information before you proceed to the next chapter. In addition, the rationale for each online quiz and
test questions found in the web-based tools is mapped directly to the reading materials.
