SCEA 5 Part I Study Guide Mind Map

As promised, here’s the long overdue Mind Map for SCEA 5 Part I. This file builds on top of the OLD SCEA Part I Study Guide Mind Map. This file contain the references I used for SCEA 5 BETA Part I preparation last year which is just an addition to the resources already mentioned in the OLD SCEA mind map.

You will notice that this mind map is not as elaborate as the first one as we only had a few weeks of preparation for the BETA exam. I still hope you find it useful for your own preparations.

Reminder: Please rename the file to a .mm (Freemind) extension after downloading. Do not use Open Office to view this file.
