The following books and courses will be useful in preparing for the CPSA exam.
- Daniel J. Solove & Paul M. Schwartz, Information Privacy Law (Aspen 7th ed. 2021)
This is the most comprehensive resource (about 1300 pages) to use to study for the exam, but some of the shorter resources below will be quite effective in lieu of this large textbook.
- Daniel J. Solove & Paul M. Schwartz, Privacy Law Fundamentals (IAPP 6th ed. 2022)
This short guide to privacy law covers most of the material on the exam.
A series of 1-hour courses taught by Professors Solove and Schwartz. In preparation of the exam, you can take Professor Solove and Schwartz’s online course series available at the PSA website. These courses will contain a lot of the material on the exam, but not all of it.
