Note: This Syllabus is subject to change in the future.

The Syllabus for each examination is defined in the form of Learning Objectives, Knowledge Statements, and Readings. The Learning Objectives present the learning goals for the underlying subjects being tested and set forth, usually in broad terms, what the candidate should be able to do in actual practice. The Knowledge Statements describe the body of knowledge corresponding to the exam subject and are illustrative of the scope of each Learning Objective. The Readings are recommended resources that support the Learning Objectives and may assist candidates to prepare for the examination. The CAS is not responsible for any errors or omissions found in the content of the resources identified in the Readings.
