Step 2: Prepare

ACAT Step 2

Step 2: Decide on a method of preparation

ACAT has partnered with the National Society of Accountants (NSA) to offer study materials that will help you prepare for the ACAT exams. All the prep courses are available in PDF and online through Proprofs. Practice Exams are available online only. 

Prep Courses include chapters of content followed by review questions. Practice Exams are the review questions without the content. If you purchase the Prep Courses there is no need to purchase the Practice Exam; those questions are included with the Prep Course. 


ACAT’s role is in developing and administering certification examinations to determine the qualifications of candidates for certification. ACAT does not approve, endorse, or recommend any education or training programs or products designed or intended to prepare candidates for ABA certification. Purchase of NSA review materials are not a requirement for testing, nor does use of any review materials (NSA or otherwise) imply successful performance on the ACAT certification examinations.
