First some key points regarding the CPP certification.
** CPP Certification is through PPA and you need to be a PPA member in order to take the exam. http://www.ppa.com/
** GRPP & PPSNYS membership is also required.
** To be certified, you need to pass the exam and also the photo review. See the photo submission PDF attachment.
** You can be a member of the CPP study group without planning on taking the exam.
To prepare for the exam, our study group followed the 10 week chapter study outline from Brent Walton’s study group (why deviate from success?). The book is “Photography” ninth edition by London, Stone & Upton http://www.amazon.com/Photography-9th-Barbara-London/dp/0131752014. So the chapters for a particular week were assigned to our study group members, who would lead the discussion on the following week. This included a review of chapter questions at http://wps.prenhall.com/hss_london_photo_9/68/17419/4459318.cw/index.html.
