***It has been brought to the attention of the AATB that some independent companies have created study guides, practice tests and flash cards intended to help candidates prepare for the AATB CTBS exam. These documents are not endorsed by the AATB, and many of the test answers included in the material are incorrect. The AATB Executive Office would like to remind CTBS exam candidates that only the materials directly provided by the association are AATB-approved.
