I passed the CSP yesterday after finishing the Bowen CSP Prep course on Thursday. I do not recommend scheduling the exam without at least a 2-week gap after the end of the prep course. I felt that I needed more time to prepare. The Bowen EHS course helped a lot. I would not have gotten questions on liability, safety management systems, the role of front-line supervision on safety, and ventilation correct without the prep course. I did not read any of the recommended texts, but I did complete the BCSP Self Assessment, which included several questions that were on the exam. If I was going to study again, I'd focus on risk assessment tools (FMEA, Fault Tree Analysis, Life Cycle Analysis, etc.), IH, reliability, statistics/probability, and management systems. Thanks to Bowen and especially William Pate, a great instructor for the CSP Prep Course!
