Clearing a professional exam in the very first sitting is the dream of many young men and women, said a Gambian chartered accountant and banker Ebrima Sawaneh.

Mr. Sawaneh reveals techniques to pass professional exams in his new book titled “PASSED: 12 Proven Secrets to Pass any Professional Exam at The First Sitting.”

The book is now available on Amazon to help students across the world realize their career dreams.

His new book is now bringing the essential tips and tricks together that will allow students to find success.

“Most young people view professional exams as difficult to pass, and some even give up on their life dreams,” he said. “After acquiring four professional qualifications through self-study, I have figured out 12 principles that can help anyone to pass professional exams.”

He said attending lectures isn’t mandatory, saying the book shares the techniques to prepare and clear any professional exam, and will especially help those who face challenges of planning, studies, and the exam hall.

He said the book discloses the mindset, network, and investment needed to pass a professional exam, proven methods of preparing study notes that aid recall, how to relate the textbook to the practical cases and scenarios, and how to easily remember any new idea or formula.

“The book discusses my experience as a young African, as well as what some well-known studies discovered about the art of successful learning.”

Mr. Sawaneh, who said he cleared over 20 professional exam sittings through self-study at the first attempt while doing a full-time banking job said the book is a must-read for anyone going to take professional exams. “The tips and strategies the author presents do not only guarantee the successful passing of any exams but also make any goal into a reality,” a recent reader review said of the book.
