Established in 1919, the CIMA offers an internationally-respected management qualification. These passcards are designed for paper 3b of stage 1 of the 2001 CIMA professional examinations in management accountancy. Designed to be self-contained, covering the whole syllabus, and revised in response to syllabus and legislative changes, the 2001 CIMA study materials comprise a range of study texts, practice and revision kits, and passcards - all available separately, and covering papers 1 to 16 from stage 1 up to stage 4. Passcards are the third component of the study package focusing only on the essentials for the exam. "Focus points" highlight topics most likely to appear in the exam with emphasis given to the most recent exams. Key topics are summarized in a concise manner making passcards ideal for last minute revision. Each passcard is pocket-sized and spiral-bound for convenient use. The cards feature notes linked to clear key-word diagrams, practical tips on what the examiners will be looking for, and an indication of which topics have been examined and when.
