I found this article today on CIMA’s website, which you may have already seen. This provides a useful guide of how you should get up to speed with the pre-seen information in advance of your exam.
Notice on the bottom of page 1, CIMA confirm “the case writers seek inspiration for their cases in what is happening in the real world, looking for business contexts, industries or issues which are topical and interesting. The case writers will regularly read the financial pages of quality newspapers in their search for new ideas so it would be a good idea if you did, too”.
I will be posting links to articles that I think are relevant for you to consider how they could appear in your exam, so please follow my blog.
CIMA have also produced a good range of DOs and DON’Ts to help you avoid common mistakes in preparing for the case study exam.
