CIMA Management Case Study – Theory Revision Series

The key theory you need to know

The Case Study exam is heavily focused on the application of technical knowledge you have learned for the Objective Tests.

It’s really vital that you know the theory inside out. After all, you can’t apply technical knowledge that you don’t have!

Interestingly, the majority of students that sat the Case Study in recent sittings told us they wished they had spent more time revising the theory prior to exam day. 

So, we’ve created a theory revision series, focusing on the key topics you’ll need to know for the CIMA MCS exam!

The combination of our concise study text and comprehensive tuition videos provides all of the theory that you need from the E2, P2 and F2 exams to make sure you’re prepared for the topics most likely to be tested in this challenging Case Study exam.

What our students say

Please see our testimonials page for our latest student reviews. Here are a couple of examples:

“Clear, to the point with a very human touch to the delivery of the materials. Covers everything and highlights so much better than any other provider the “must-knows” vs. the “nice-to-knows” in achieving the pass. All this and easily the cheapest best value for money provider around. 5 stars. Can’t recommend enough”


CIMA Management Case Study Student, July 2019

“I took the Management Case Study with exceptions and passed on first try! I used the case study video and study texts. The essay/letter/email writing approach was crucial for me for writing detailed, to the point and timed answers to the prompts.”
