If I just read the study guide, will I be able to answer all the questions and pass the IBF Examinations?

While your study guide is a key reference for the content that will be tested in the exam, it is also important that you understand the fundamental principles of the rules, codes of conduct and products that are covered. We would encourage you to also refer to the relevant rules, codes or other textbooks in the study guide footnotes and recommended readings if you do not fully understand the concepts in the study guide.

IBF will be progressively revising its examinations to include more application-based questions so as to ensure that individuals are able to apply their knowledge to a particular regulated activity or job role. These questions will test on concepts in the study guide, but may not be directly referenced from the study guide.
