Preparing for ECEs

Exam Content Guides

Each exam's content guide provides an outline of the topics covered, a list of study resources, sample questions, and a how-to-prepare section. All these resources are recommended by the Excelsior College faculty who develop the exams, so using them is clearly a good idea.

Content guides are updated periodically to reflect changes in particular exams and textbooks. Be sure you have the most recent guide available before taking your exam. Current exam content guides can be found on each exam detail page or by following the link below.
