Our aim with sharing these practice questions
Our aim is to help and inspire folks who want to gain their CCXP credential or simply improve their understanding of Customer Experience as a business discipline.
That’s why we have developed a current bank of more than 150 practice questions with more underway.
We use these practice questions in our Customer experience training workshops as well as publish selected questions from time to time.
In the next section, we share 10 of our CCXP exam practice questions related specifically to the Voice of Customer, Customer Insight & Understanding competency.
These 10 questions are designed to address specific know-how expected for this competency and are written in the same multiple choice format found on the official CCXP Exam.
Read through each question and choose the answer that you think is correct – that’s either a, b, c or d.
Remember that the official exam is no books, no notes. So answer as best you can from your current knowledge & experience. Don’t look up any answers!
Here goes – and good luck!

Would you like to know how you did?
If you’d like to know if your answers are correct we’re happy to help.
We’ve intentionally gone ‘low-tech’ here. There’s no need to register anywhere, set-up an account or pay to access the practice questions.
Once you’ve answered all (10) questions just drop an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me know the question # and the answer that you chose (either a,b,c or d).
You can use the following format in your email to me:
- c (and so on for all 10 Practice Questions)
I always do my best to answer quickly and let you know which ones you got right and which need correction.
Of course taking 10 CCXP Exam Practice questions won’t fully reflect the experience and effort that have gone into your Customer experience work and goals to date.
But in all these many years of running high level certification programs, we find that the more practice questions you take – and learn from – the better prepared you will be.
