Study Guide

Study Guides are available in every subject and contain all the information you need to know before you start studying. Study Guides contain details of the study support availableassignment deadlines, advice on how to study efficiently and the full Syllabus for your subject.

We recommend that you download the Study Guide and read it carefully before deciding which subjects to study and ordering your course material.


Course Notes

The Course Notes, available in print or as an eBook, will help you develop the basic knowledge and understanding of principles needed to pass the exam. The Course Notes incorporate the complete Core Reading and include a full explanation of all the syllabus objectives, and practice questions at the end of each chapter to test and develop your understanding.

In Subjects CB2, SP6 and SP9, students are also required to read material in specified textbooks, which do not form part of the Course Notes.

Here are some samples:
