CPCU® 552 Practice Exam Questions
The CPCU® 552 exam questions are tough. The CPCU® 552 exam consists of 75 multiple choice questions broken up into two sections, part A and part B.
Let’s look at an example of a Part A and Part B question. Below we will breakdown two sample questions, including an answer and full explanation, from the CPCU® 552 exam. These questions are written by AssociatePI, though we do not offer an CPCU® 552 course at this time I do recommend this study material from AB Training Center. This is the study material I use; it includes practice questions much like the question and explanations in this blog.
CPCU® 552 Sample Exam Questions – Part A
Which of the following best describes retention as a risk-financing technique?
- Generating funds to pay for losses
- Adding higher limits on an insurance policy
- Backing up important documents using an external hard drive
- Insuring both property and auto
Answer: A) Generating funds to pay for losses
Retention is the process of saving or setting aside funds to pay for a loss. This is needed if the loss is not fully covered by insurance.
CPCU® 552 Sample Exam Questions – Part B
Evan sells sports memorabilia through his e-commerce website. Evan is sued for slander, resulting in a $25,000 lawsuit, when his advertisement falsely accuses a major league baseball player of cheating. Which of the following would provide coverage for this loss under Evan’s commercial general liability policy?
- Coverage A
- Coverage B
- Coverage C
- This loss is not covered
Answer: D) This loss is not covered
This loss would not be covered under the commercial general liability policy. Media and internet businesses are specifically excluded under Coverage B of the commercial general liability policy.
Media or internet business – Coverage B of the commercial general liability form does not provide coverage for any media or internet business involved in advertising, broadcasting, publishing, telecasting, or designing an internet website or service. This type of business can be covered under a specialized policy.
On your exam, you will be given a scenario like the one seen above; it is your job to understand what is being asked of you and how to solve or recommend a solution to the scenario.
