The Week Ahead – 25th January 2015


The clock is ticking and we are getting closer to the February sitting of the case study exams. With this in mind, I posted some valuable information last week on the best CIMA mock exam resources as well as how to use the CIMA examiners report.

On to this week and what’s coming up.
