The UAB - Universal Accreditation Board - suggests that successful candidates also purchase a text from the Short Bookshelf of Recommended Texts. We recommend that candidates enroll first, before purchasing a text from the Short Bookshelf. We will help you determine which text is most appropriate to your personal and professional situation. New texts may be very expensive. Often a used version is just as valuable and much less expensive.
