The OSC is not a substitute for the exam. It is designed to provide a guided view of the appropriate material that the exam will cover. Candidates can take online practice exams to assess their understanding of the material. Answers will not be sent out to candidates for review in order to ensure the integrity of the CTB Exam.

If you plan to use the textbook from previous candidates, be sure to check with TIA to make sure you have the appropriate editions of the textbook being used. Currently, Foundations of Business, 5th edition, by Pride, Hughes and Kapoor is the correct textbook.
