How do I study?

SASB recommends spending at least 30 hours studying for each of the FSA Level I and Level II exams. You automatically receive the study guide after you schedule an exam (in an email entitled “Your FSA Study Guide and Exam Date”).


When are exams offered?

The FSA Credential is offered during three testing blocks throughout the year. On any day of the year, you may register and choose an exam date in one of three exam periods: January-February, May-June, and September-October. There are multiple test times on whatever exam day you choose.

To accommodate recent updates made to the FSA Level I exam, the available Level I test dates in May – June 2021 will be May 17 – June 30.

The testing schedule for the FSA Level II will remain unchanged and exams will be offered May 1 – June 30.

The FSA Credential exams are offered at two types of locations: at test centers around the world or online with a remote proctor. You can read more about the location of test centers and the computer requirements for online proctoring on the Exam Day page.
