National Board Exam Study Guide

Announcement: Volume 12 of the NBE Study Guide purchased prior to 5/18/2018.

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

DESCRIPTION – Soft cover, spiral-bound, 168 pages. Each chapter includes professional expectations, NBE content outline,  sample questions, instructive questions, and answer key. Glossaries are provided at the end of Arts and Sciences sections.

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

  • Structure of an Item
  • Test Taking Principles
  • Helpful Resources
  • Sample Questions
  • Content Outlines
  • ABFSE Glossaries
  • Appendices provide additional information as a convenient reference

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 qualified practitioners including, exam committee members,  professional educators, and regulators.

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.

Please Note: No part of the materials conveyed during this study guide may be copied, downloaded, reproduced, stored, distributed, used or transferred to any individual or group, through any means, including verbally without the express, prior written consent of The Conference. Sharing this information is a violation of copyright laws and will result in legal action being taken against you.
