Hi, I would like to study CIPS Level 4. I have made up my mind to do self-study. while searching the books to purchase, I found two different book sources.
One is CIPS official website book (called study guide. Worried what if they just give only guides) and the other one is PROFEX publishing brand one. Could you please give me some advice that which book would be better to use for study ?
That's a great question, the information I have found is to just go through the CIPS website. I have found this through the website for you. Hope this helps.
Few years back CIPS and Profex combined forces and published a single book. In my view this was a good decision, since historically CIPS books were very convoluted and over the top, chapters too long with many repeated information. Profex books were straightforward clearly explaining a subject. I'd suggest that you check if a collaborated books from CIPS and Profex still are valid. Your tutor should advise. Good luck.
