You might be wondering if there is any calculation in CFM exam specially for Finance and Business.
The answer is, you'll find numbers, but you don't need to compute for anything. All you have to do is compare the given choices to each other.
When you go to Prometric to take the exam, they'll only give you a scratch paper and a pencil. They won't allow you to use a calculator.
So, from that moment you'll know that there's no calculation to be done.
But, during the exam, there are 1 to 3 questions that you'll encounter regarding investment.
They'll give you a scenario and ask you about those investment projects.
So after failing the CFM exam, you told yourself, never say die! Never!
