ABSTRACT
This article provides tips for those studying for the organization Institute of Management Services's examinations to gain a better understanding of the techniques needed in order to be successful. The author says that in the past there have been many instances where candidates have complained about their examination results. Often complaining with such confidence as to the level of their answers that upon checking with the assessors, the uncanny echo expected to come back is "Yes," the candidate did write a particularly good piece of work, but unfortunately it was not the answer to the question which was asked. Satisfying the examiners should not really be that difficult a task if one gets the examination in proportion. The eight questions on the paper can, perhaps, only sample half of the syllabus. With a choice of five questions out of the eight and a pass mark at 50 per cent, the examiners are expecting students to display a knowledge of only a fairly small percentage of the total syllabus.
