CIMA Strategic – 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!

“As I’m an 18 year old with NO corporate experience, I didn’t know what most of the models meant. But with the real life examples such as bakeries, local businesses and other examples in the book which are real life, it was so helpful to understand.
