The following is a list of formulas for use on the Level I CIMA Exam (memorization is not necessary, but students must be able to
recognize and perform calculations for exam success). The formulas presented on this sheet may be presented in a different
format during your Level II coursework (for example, capital letters or reverse order.) The formulas on this sheet are based on the
textbook and math module used for the Level I. Level II professors and study material may use alternative formulas for Level II
classes. It is important that candidates learn to read a formula and recognize it in different formats.
