Interactive Web-Based Component Details
  • Pretest and posttest
    These practice tests, consisting of 50 multiple-choice questions each, cover content drawn from the entire system and weighted to the CSCP ECM. After each question, you will be provided with immediate feedback, including the correct answer and the rationale for that answer. A running total of questions answered is provided as you proceed through the test. The pretest results will provide you with an indication of those areas that require the most attention. The posttest results will measure your progress following your completion of the course.
  • SmartStudy™ Tool
    Build a customized study plan using your pretest results to target your most challenging topics and optimize your study time.
  • Module Chapter quizzes
    Functioning similarly to the pre and posttests, the module and chapter quizzes allow you to check your understanding and retention of materials within a given module. The questions include immediate feedback, answer rationales and reference to the relevant sections in the text so you can review trouble areas.
  • Learning Activities
    The case study format allows you to practice the supply chain management concepts and calculations introduced in each module. These activities test retention and your ability to apply concepts through multiple choice questions and immediate feedback.
  • Practice Exams
    Two practice exams help you build confidence for the certification exam and gain comfort and experience with the format and functionality of the computer-based APICS CSCP exam.  One version uses 50 retired exam questions, the other includes newly written exam-like questions. The practice exams measure elapsed time and assess whether you are on track to complete the APICS CSCP exam in the allotted time. You can flag questions for review and skip and return to questions later in the test. Following each practice exam, you can review results, including incorrect and correct questions.
