Changes to the CPCU 552 online course material

The Institutes has updated the course materials for their CPCU courses to a new “online” version. New exams for CPCU 551, 552, and 553 will start on January 15, 2021.

The topics covered in the new 1st edition online CPCU 552 have not changed dramatically from those in the 3rd edition textbook; however, the new book is about two thirds the size of the previous version.

If you are using our 3rd edition BDU CPCU 552 study materials in conjunction with the new online course material from The Institutes, you will likely be well prepared for your exam. Just make sure to pay special attention to which Learning Objectives to skip and which sections are new and therefore not covered in our existing material. We will be updating our BDU CPCU 552 study materials, but the 552 materials may not be ready until late spring or early summer 2021. Please email help@bigdaddyu.com if you have any questions.

      Our apologies! The LO numbers in the textbook are slightly different than the LO numbers in our existing study materials. I’ve edited the post to accurately indicate which of the old LOs from our existing study guide can be omitted.
