Changes to the CPCU 530 2nd Edition Textbook

The Institutes has updated their CPCU 530 textbook and began testing students over the new content for exams starting on January 15, 2020. Below you will find a summary of the differences between the old textbook (1st edition) and the new textbook (2nd edition).

  • Chapter 1 is the same
  • Chapter 2 was split into two – it is now Chapters 2 & 3
  • Chapter 3 is now Chapter 4
  • Chapter 4 is now Chapter 5
    • Chapter 5 has one new Learning Objective – “Performance and Breach of Sales Contracts”
  • Chapter 5 is now Chapter 6
  • Chapter 6 was split into two – it is now Chapters 7 & 8
    • Chapter 8 has one new Learning Objective – “Data Privacy and Cyber Regulation,” plus the addition of the old Module 10 Learning Objective 5 – “U.S. Laws Affecting International Business”
  • Chapter 7 is now Chapter 9
  • Chapter 8 is now Chapter 10
  • Chapter 9 was split into two – it is now Chapters 11 & 12
  • Chapter 10 was mostly removed (except for Learning Objective 5, which is in the new Chapter 8)


We believe our existing study materials based off the 1st edition textbook are still sufficient for passing the new exam. We are working on updating our CPCU 530 study materials now and expect to have the updated materials ready in April 2020. We will notate here and on the course page when the new study materials are completed and ready to order.

      Yes, if you order your study materials now, we’ll ship the updated study guide to you as soon as we have them in stock – hopefully by early April.

      We are finishing up the update now. We hope to send the new study guide to the printer and upload the new Test Bank and Practice Exam to the website this week. The new videos will be recorded and uploaded over the next few weeks.

    I know this is the updated version but can I still use it as my study material and take the expiring exam?

      These study materials were developed based off the 2nd edition textbook which is being used for exams through September 15, 2020. We haven’t yet reviewed the new course material for exams starting October 2020, but based off the chapter titles, the content appears to be the same for those exams.

    I just purchased this and was curious if this will line up with only the test window through Sept. 15th or if it will incorporate anything new that falls after that testing window? I don’t want to be caught in between old/new editions and testing material….Thanks!

      We’ve just reviewed the new CPCU 530 online course material, and they are nearly identical to the 2nd edition CPCU 530 textbook, so you’ll be just fine using these study materials whether you’re taking your exam before or after September 15th.
