The 2017 CSW Study Guide and Workbook are now in stock and shipping from the SWE Home Office.
Online Prep Course: Our next CSW Online Prep Course is scheduled to begin in July of 2017, with the next course starting in January of 2018. The aim of the prep course is to get attendees “as prepared as humanly possible” for a successful sitting of the CSW Exam. Online prep courses are available, free-of-charge, to Professional members of SWE who have a valid CSW Exam attendance credit.
Exam Deadlines: The CSW exam based on the 2017 Study Guide is now available at Pearson Vue testing centers and will be available until further notice (exam availability is based upon the release date of the study guides). The exam based on the 2015 Study Guide is scheduled to expire at the end of 2017 – for most Pearson Vue testing centers the last day of availability will be December 31, 2017.
Errata for the 2017 CSW Study Guide:
- On page 129, in table 9-8 (Languedoc-Roussillion Appellations), the “dot”for the Crémant de Limoux AOC should be under the heading of “Sparkling” rather than “red.”
- On page 136 of the CSW 2017 study guide, in the last paragraph on the left-hand side, in the second sentence, it reads “Corvina is considered to be the quality grape of the four,” – this should read “the quality grape of the three.”
- On page 269 of the CSW 2107 study guide, in the first paragraph under the heading “History” – it notes that the Daizenji Temple is located in the present-day Fukuoka Prefecture; this should read “the present-day Yamanashi Prefecture.”
