Looks like CIMA have made a couple of errors in the latest re-issue of the their C03 Business Mathematics sample question paper.
Question 26 both refers to both a Test rank and a Task rank. 2 Test ranks are provided.
Perhaps more alarmingly, the answer to Question 43 (an excel based question) specifies an Excel formula that returns an error.
Doesn't inspire with any great confidence going into the exam :/

I took my C04 exam at Pearson Vue yesterday, there was a question in my exam that required the use of the tables. In the tutorial at the beginning of exam I was shown that the tables would be available akin to the calculator (onscreen). When I needed the tables there was no sign of them. I checked with the person there and she said you must not need them!
It concerns me that these are not being made available.
Hello. I've just started CIMA and I am studying for my first certificate exam just now. I am planning on spending around 30 hours studying for each exam. My question is, how long did you spend studying for each paper? I'm trying to gauge if I have the right sort of study time in mind or if I am drastically over or under.
I am struggling to understand how I get to the correct answer on one of the questions on the Mock Exam for C02.
I've just started C01 as I want to have something on paper to back up my skills/knowledge. I have a few questions if anyone can help:
How long did it take you to complete this paper?
How long did it take you to complete this whole certificate level?
Were you studying alongside your job or studying full time?
The website states that on average the whole 5 exams are completed within one yr, surely this isn't true?
I am sitting C03 exam in 2 days
Upon doing some practise questions and mocks, I found the following irritating anomoly:
If for example (this is made up but based on a question from a mock in the P&R kit), the question asks you to type in the formula to calculate a percentage, given a range of data and a total, I said the correct formula would be =AVERAGE(A1:A10). This of course would give the correct answer. However, the answers section stated i should have used =A11/10, A11 being the total, Or =sum(A1:A10)/10
I have a couple of questions as a result of my last attempt at passing the C03 exam.
1. There were a few questions that asked me to find the product member correlation coefficient from a table of data. I've never heard of that term before and when I asked a friend that's doing this same course and is much smarter than me, he didn't know what it was either. Can someone help us?
2. I've come across a few questions that asked me to formulate an equation from a table of data. Is there an easy way of doing this besides trial and error?
I am a new Cima Student and doing my certificate level. I am appearing in exams in may, 2013. What I to ask is once I passed certificate level can I get admission in University for Bsc accounting. Before this all did is GCSEs my grades are Bs and Cs.
I am looking for a study buddy :)
I live in Arbroath, Scotland and work in Aberdeen. So anywhere between these is great! Or anyone who has access to some form of chat , msn / skype etc
I will be studying E1, P1 & F1 for May 2013 sitting. I failed E1 by 44 but due to my mum being quite ill i think i did not too bad to be so close! I already have had lectures etc regarding E1 so its just a case of remembering it! P1 & F1 i am yet to study!
I have just started studying for the Certificate level and will begin with C05. I will be self-studying as I am trying to keep the costs low at this level. I have purchased the CIMA official study text and revision cards but will be looking for something that allows me to practice lots of questions on a computer simulating the exam. Hoping that this will be enough for me to pass.
I have just finished my C01 exam and am now selling the textbook.
The textbook is like new, as i used BPPs notes to annotate and not the book itself.
I work in Hammersmith and if you are nearby you can also collect from me.
The book has no annotations and is like new!
Please send me a message if you are interested. - 15 Pounds for the book.
I am currently studying the CO5 module at certificate level. Can anyone tell me if knowledge of specific cases is needed. I have only done the first topic in this module and have already come across about 10 cases.
I am a bit worried as the end of chapter questions are referring to case names.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Has anyone got any certificate level textbooks for sale? I'm doing the online course at the moment, but the study text would be great.
Only interested in the latest 2012 version.
I'm based in the UK.
