Suggestions for Candidates


Become Familiar with the Case Study

Some of the exams contain a case study. This is a good way to bring real–life applications into the study setting. A common misconception that candidates may have is that the case study is simply another study note. In fact, the case study is used to link to as much of the examination material as possible, and references to the case study will appear on the examination. It is a good idea to read through the case study before reviewing anything else on the syllabus, and refer back to the case study as new topics are covered. As a reminder, candidates will not be permitted to bring their copy of the case study into the examination room. A copy will be included in the examination booklet.
