P3: Useful Links and Resources


The CIMA P3 paper Risk Management draws on the knowledge gained from the operational and management level. It has five equally weighted areas that start with idenification of risk and leads all the way through to responses, internal controls and managing risk associated with cash flows and capital management.

If you are self studying then you will need all of the resources you can get to pass CIMA exams and the strategic level is without doubt the toughest level. Here are a few resources and useful links to keep you going.
