  • What is the format?
    Each competency is laid out in its own chapter. Within this chapter, there is a table setting out the key point, RICS document, law or issue and what you need to take into consideration. This offers a quick and efficient way to take in bite size bits of crucial information.
    There are also example questions for each competency and diagrams of key learning points attached as a summary. Each chapter has an example summary of experience in a best practice format for level 1, 2 and 3.
    The main Revision Guide is a professionally published (with ISBN) soft back glue bound book.
    Crib Book
    The revision guide now comes with a crib book, full of mind maps in full colour to help you make the connections and to assist your retention of the facts. The crib book also includes revision mind maps for ALL mandatory competencies. This includes the new 2018 competency – inclusive environments.
  • How big is it?
    The 2020 edition Revision Guide is the biggest yet 200 pages – offering additional new competencies to the guide such as loan security valuation. It is deliberately focused on key points to aid revision, not to overwhelm with non-vital information. The aim is to learn ALL of it, understanding the background context and do the suggested supplementary reading for context.
    The Crib Book is A4 colour and staple bound.
  • Feedback?
    “The revision guide was absolutely invaluable in terms of summarising the knowledge required for L1. The clear presentation, and in particular having the competency requirements divided into key learning points was very helpful when planning revision. I can honestly say that without this revision guide I don’t think I would have passed. Well worth the cost. I recommend this guide.”
