When we develop our material we do not classify topics the official way. In fact, we follow our own flow of instructions which we think is more logical for the overall learning process. Donít worry, it does not hurt to do so, as long as you truly comprehend the material.

To succeed in the exam, you need to read as many reference books as possible. There is no single book that can cover everything! This ExamFOCUS book focuses on the more difficult topics that will likely make a difference in exam results. The book is NOT intended to guide you through every single official topic. You should therefore use this book together with other reference books for the best possible preparation outcome.
