There are a wide range of resources available to help you study for the Cert BA and Professional Qualifications. You can view the difference between paid resources and those included as part of your subscription here.

Studying with a tuition provider 

You can attend a course with one of the many global tuition providers that teach CIMA. This is a good option if you like to study with others and appreciate having a tutor on hand for any questions. Lessons will be planned to cover the full course and offer revision prior to sitting your exam.

It’s easy to find a top-quality, accredited tuition provider near you that meets global standards using the CIMA Global Learning database.
