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 CIMA 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 E1, P1, and F1 study texts help you with even the trickiest topics 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 textbooks 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 having cancelled my P1 and E1 exams because i was failing to understand the concepts under another tuition provider i decided to use Astranti books. These are well explained with detailed examples. I managed to pass my subjects on first time attempts.”

“What I really liked were Astranti’s Study texts. They were written in this engaging, interactive way which I personally found very interesting (I usually zone out and get really bored) when I have to read extremely theoretical content.”
