    Here are a couple of books on being a customs broker:

    Amazon.com: Your Successful Career As a Mortgage Broker: Books: David Reed

    Amazon.com: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Success as a Mortgage Broker (Complete Idiot's Guide to): Books: Daniel S. Kahn,Marian Edelman Borden

    I don't know how useful these would be for studying for the exam. You can download past exams and study keys at the following site which is oneway you can get some practice in advance of the exam without laying out money for study materials:

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection - Import

    For $525 (cheapest I found) is American Customs Association DVD course for the Customs Broker License Exam. I think the web is Customs Broker License | Customs Broker Exam | Customs Broker Course
    Or Customs Broker License | Customs Broker Exam | Customs Broker Course

    Sorry came out funny - it's AmericanCustoms.Org

    The proper body that trains and certifies customs brokers in the us is The National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America, Inc.

    Exam prep courses are available, contact them, maybe they will sell you just the manuals, and as posted above vasily showed where to download old exams from previous years.

    Also Vasily, the books you posted are for Mortgage brokers not customs brokers.

    Customs Broker Prep Courses - Education Institute - NCBFAA

    Finally, all of these answers have assumed you live in the US, if you don't please let us know which country.

    When I searched for customs broker, the books shown showed up and I linked to them by mistake. If you want to find books on Amazon, select Books and enter "customs broker" including the quotes in the search field. A number of books and articles are returned... unfortunately, most seem to be out of print or unavailable.

    I understand that Boskage will send you the April updated HTS and 19 CFR materials if you do not pass the Oct. 2013 exam
