RD Exam Preparation
All exam candidates are required to review the Handbook for Candidates before making their testing appointment. The handbook contains important information regarding scheduling procedures, examination content, and reporting of results.
The CDR publishes the Study Guide for the Registration Examination for Dietitians. This study guide outlines the content that is covered in the Registration Examination for Dietitians and the online practice exam contains questions typical of those on the actual examination. The questions are designed to assess the entry-level knowledge and skills dietitians need to practice safely. Use the online practice examination to become familiar with this examination format.
CDR does not endorse any particular examination preparation program or offering. We encourage prospective credentialed practitioners to use a variety of resources that reflect their learning styles and needs. Purchasing a certification preparation product is NOT required and CDR does not guarantee that an individual will pass based on the purchase of a certification preparation product.
