    Hi,

    I am in the process of starting to study for my CeMap qualification. (waiting for my study material to arrive!)


    I have just had a quick look at a couple of mock papers online and I am now terrified... surely I can’t be the only who has looked at the mock papers before studying and not had a clue what the questions meant, never mind the answers?

    I am thinking of trying to study a lot for a shorter period and doing the exam ASAP rather than drag it out through 8 months as I know I will put off studying!! I am thinking I will book the cemap 1 exam for three minutes this after receiving my material. Does this sound do-able?! Study for 2 hours 5 days a week?

    Thanks

    You should go at your own pace.
    You dont have to book the exam till you are ready as long as its within 1 year of buying the course. If having a fixed date will motivate you, then do that but personally I wouldnt sit till I was ready. there is a limited option to rebook.

    Yes it sounds doable. Maybe spend a few weeks with the material to see how you find it first?

    Thanks for your reply. I just know once I start studying I won’t sleep and I’ll be stressed until it is passed so Im trying to prepare for that!

    Have you done CeMap? If so how did it find it?

    Hi, How are you finding it? Im really struggling, i purchased some material about 4 months ago and struggling to get my head into it. thought about walking away but too strong willed!!!!

    Can you recommend any good books? I read reviews on a couple but they seem dated, the material ive got is all online based and i think if i had a book it maybe easier to find time...

    Good luck with yours!!

    I'm struggling too. I've decided to set a study plan, and not feel embarrassed about taking a while week or two to get round 1 topic. Ive also been googling some things that are confusing me to get different perspectives and definitions Just be careful of out of date material. I've found that .gov has helped me massively!I'm going to book my test once I've got to topic 10 - for 4 months in the future to give me enough time but also ensure that I am still keeping it up! Good luck!!
