"Better version of CII material in so much as I don't open the CII books, just use Wizard Learning online for study and tests and so far it's working!" Ceri Evans

“Wizard Learning is a must, it is so much more enjoyable to read than the CII text book and a lot less demanding. I have now passed R02, R03 and R04 using Wizard Learning and recommend it to everybody that asks me for help with the CII R0 Exams. I will be using it to gain chartered status in the near future. Keep up the great work!” Joseph Homes
