Have any companies released books to help people pass the test?
At present, there are no books or other materials specifically devoted to the RFID Professional Institute's Associate-level exam. RFID4U will provide a training course at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2015 conference and exhibition (taking place in San Diego, Calif., on Apr. 15-17), which aims to cover most of the topics listed on the exam's blueprint.
Since the test was designed to cover the basics of RFID—different frequencies, protocols, standards and applications of RFID technologies—any books written for the now-defunct CompTIA RFID+ exam would be a big help. The only problem is that they would not cover some new topics that have emerged since that test was created. Now that the exam is available to all, I expect that training companies will likely begin introducing courses and other materials to help people pass it.
