Self-Study for PRINCE2® exams
Candidates have two general ways of preparing for exams, self-study and taking accredited courses.
When is self-study allowed?
You may self-study for some of the PRINCE exams:
- PRINCE2® Foundation: Yes
- PRINCE2® Practitioner: No
- PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation: Yes
- PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner: No
How can I prepare for the exam?
There are many books you can use for self-study. The most important is the official manual. You can also use resources such as PRINCE2 wiki for troubleshooting.
When you’re done with your studies, it’s a good idea to take sample exams to familiarize yourself with the style of questions and to fill in the gaps.

How can I buy the exam voucher after self-study?
You can either buy the exam directly from PeopleCert (the official examination institute), or one of the accredited training organizations. The latter is usually less expensive, and you may also get extras with that.
