Note: Suggested study resources should be viewed as a single component of preparation for the COE exam. These materials are not meant to “teach to the exam” and should be viewed as optional, additional resources which may, or may not, be utilized in an individual’s exam preparation.  Attendance at the COE Review Course offered at the ASOA Annual Congress does not guarantee passage of the COE exam.
