Angela Thomas Job role: Cost Accountant, Eden Industries, Wales
Level of CIMA studies: Strategic
Why I took CIMA: Shortly after joining Eden I was offered a training package. CIMA was recommended and it seemed a well-rounded qualification which looked at the wider aspects of accountancy rather than concentrating on the technicalities.
Why I use CIMAstudy.com: Working full-time and studying for the CIMA qualification means that effective time management is vital. I first purchased CIMA.com last October when I started revising for my Managerial level exams. I particularly like the direct links to further reading material which is absolutely key to getting a good pass. There are plenty of practise questions and direct links to past exam questions and answers. Having direct links like these saves a lot of time when you are under pressure, and it means I can be flexible and access study materials wherever I am and at any time. For example I will often do some reading during my lunch break at work. I purchased CIMA.com for my current level of studies as soon as it was available as I have no doubt it will be of benefit.
