CBP Exam Notice
The U.S. Customs Licensing Exam is difficult to pass. It requires a comprehensive knowledge of the import process, terminology, complete knowledge of the Customs Regulations and an ability to reference the Harmonized Tariff to classify commodities as outlined in the General Notes. Individuals have 3 minutes, on average, to answer each of 80 questions.
Ro Leaphart's CHB Exam Prep (© 1989-2022) is a highly organized, self-study course, designed to prepare you for the government's comprehensive exam. If you completed our introductory course, The Basics of Importing or have had equivalent import training and have read the Regulations and the General Notes of the Harmonized Tariff, you're ready to study for the government licensing exam (Find out what you know. Take our FREE placement quiz!). Our CHB Exam Prep course promises you an arduous and challenging adventure. Your success will depend upon your initiative, your stamina and your self-confidence.
ADDITIONAL REFERENCE MATERIALS and SUPPLIES must be purchased separately.
FALL 2022 Exam Shopping List: Regs (0-199), HTS, 19 USC, and Other Supplies - posted 05/26/2022. As of our posting, CBP has not posted their exam date or reference materials. Based on history, October 2022 CBLE will utilize April 2021 CFR. CBP Broker Mgmt has stated they used the 2021 HTS although historically they would be using the 2022 HTS unless unavailable. This year, however, GPO does not have copies of 2021. So only 2022 HTSs are available from GPO. COAC and instructors have asked Broker Mgmt to make sure questions will also work with 2022 HTS. As information becomes available, this post will be updated. (Posted list was compiled by Renata Pearson specifically for her classroom and tutorial students who utilize the CHB Exam Prep Learning Center, updated by Ro Leaphart for independent and tutorial students as needed.) If you have questions regarding reference materials or supplies, please contact us.
The government and legal publications may not be available or may be under revision at the time of order. You can not begin serious study without these professional reference books.
