Pa. licensing exam self-study guides

Property & Casualty

IA&B has written the book on P&C licensing exam preparation in Pennsylvania, and you can own it. With our Pennsylvania Property & Casualty Pre-Licensing Manual, aspiring agents have a tool they can use to significantly improve their chances of passing the Keystone State's P&C licensing exam on the first  try.

This 7th edition of our state-specific pre-licensing guide gives would-be agents insight into the questions they should be prepared to answer when taking the exam. It explains the entire test process (from registration to test-taking tips), provides a study schedule, recorded videos and encourages working with a mentor.

Recorded Videos

The self-study package includes eight recorded videos presented by IA&B's top-notch licensing instructors.  These condensed presentations address all the material covered on the state exam and can be viewed as often as you like during your studies. Content from videos I, II & III, produce over 40% of the state exam questions and serve as a solid foundation for material presented in other chapters. 

Corresponding Mentor program

Included in the cost of the pre-licensing package is a mentoring guide that can greatly contribute to the exam prep experience and increase the likelihood of success on the test. We urge students to work with a mentor in their agency and our mentor guide facilitates this with strategies, schedules and sample questions.
