National Board Exam Study Guide

Please Note: As of October 2, 2017, shipping will not be included in the price of the study guide. USPS Priority Flat Rate shipping fees will be applied to the purchase amount. 

The Conference has prepared a study guide to help you prepare for the National Board Examination (NBE).

DESCRIPTION – Soft cover, spiral-bound, 179 pages. Each chapter includes professional expectations, NBE content outline, glossary, and sample questions with
answer key.

In the NBE Study guide, you will find the following:

  • Subtest sections for each topic area corresponding with the National
    Board Examination
  • Glossary of terms
  • Task statements from the validation survey
  • Appendices provide additional information as a convenient reference

All questions for each subsection are linked to the concepts listed in the outline for that subsection, the curriculum outline of the ABFSE, as well as textbooks used in the ABFSE accredited mortuary schools.

Please Note: No study guide can make up for information you did not learn in the classroom. The study guide is to be used to refresh, reinforce and organize knowledge that you have already learned!


The sample questions that appear in the NBE Study Guide are similar to the type of questions used on the NBE but are not part of the item bank from which all NBEs are constructed. The sample questions were written by professional educators, regulators and qualified practitioners during an item writing workshop.

The sample questions that appear in the NBE Study Guide are constructed in the same manner and will give you assistance in preparing for the NBE. However, memorization of said questions will not ensure you a passing score on the NBE if you do not possess the underlying comprehension and understanding of the concepts required to work as an entry-level professional in the Funeral Service Industry.
