I have been studying for my Intro and certified exam held in Hong Kong on the 23rd or February 2018. I was wondering if the syllabus indicated on the CMS website : http://www.courtofmastersommeliers.org/wp-content/uploads/Course-Syllabus.pdf (click on this link to view the CMS Syllabus in PDF)
I have no doubt that the prep questions found on GuildSomm have been really very useful.
My concern is, will it be safe for me to study the outlined syllabus on the CMS website and use it as a bench mark for the amount of knowledge i will need to absorb before the exam? Because it seems to me that the intermediate level prep questions on GuildSomm seem to go deeper than required by the CMS exams (which is also a good thing)
The 'Sales & Service for the Wine professional 4th edition' book by Brian K. Julyan, MS does show nearly all of the required topics outlined by the CMS along with exercise question on the back (with answers).
PS: I know that learning as much as possible is good and being more than ready or over-ready for an exam is brilliant. I would really love for someone to advice if the CMS syllabus indicated will be enough.
Hi, do not go crazy and deep in your studies, just stick to CMS syllabus for the intro Class and pay attention in the Class what the MSs focus on you will be fine.
happy to help
Thanks for your reply I really appreciate it, Im trying my best to do level 1 (intro) and level 2 (certified) at one shot so i'm studying both IS and CS together.
