CIMA Operational – Study Texts

Our study texts

To make sure you pass first-time, you need to understand everything that you could possibly be tested on in the final exam.

We know how difficult some syllabus study texts can be to follow. Many lack any detailed explanation or meaningful examples, making it really tricky to get to grips with the content.

Our study texts help you with even the trickiest subjects by:

  • Covering the theory in an engaging manner to bring it to life

  • Giving examples throughout to ‘tell a story’, helping you get to grips with tough topics

  • Breaking difficult calculations down into steps explaining each step

If you’ve had enough of wading through enormous, highly theoretical text-books when taking your exams you’ve come to the right place!

What our students say

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

“After studying via the classroom method with one of the more expensive CIMA course providers, I decided it was time to save money by buying the Astranti distance learning course. I was very impressed with the quality of the materials. They were so well written and much easier to understand than my previous provider’s official texts. So much so that I passed my E2 exam gaining my highest grade so far using Astranti’s study text. Thanks Astranti.”
