HI: WHAT TIPS DO YOU HAVE FOR READERS STUDYING FOR THE EXAM? CA: If you work as a group risk adviser it is definitely worth taking. It helps your general knowledge, understanding and confidence in advising your clients. Our work gave us study leave and I just fitted it in with working full time by studying in the evenings too. I wrote out lots of questions to myself then tested my understanding against them.
DC: I would say it required not far off the 40 hours study recommended. One of the best ways to prepare is to ask questions of more experienced colleagues. We had lunchtime discussions and a lot of support from Hewitt.
