I am new to the payroll industry and need to earn my FPC. What are the best resources to earn (study for) this certification, and how many hours does it take to study for the certification?
Never bothered with this particular certification, but The Payroll Source Book by the APA is pretty much the bible in the payroll industry. If you know that, your test should be very easy.
The Payroll Source is a great book for the CPP exam, but it's overkill for the FPC exam. Instead, I recommend Payroll Practice Fundamentals. It's more suited for the FPC exam.
