Inference questions require you to *apply* planning knowledge.

This guide focuses on exam topics related to planning theories, elements, methods and techniques. Planners have multiple roles. Working in the Planning Commissions and Boards, planners often need to:

  • Conduct planning studies and manage development review

  • Coordinate with other departments and administer public outreach

  • Administer grant programs

Comprehensive planning is the primary approach of planning to be covered in the exam. A significant portion of the exam covers topics related to the principles, theories and methods of comprehensive planning.
