FOR RELEASE: September 14, 2009
(TEMPE, Ariz.) September 14, 2009 — Institute for Supply Management™ (ISM) has released the much anticipated CPSM® Diagnostic Kit, Web version. It is designed to help candidates focus their study efforts by identifying areas of supply management that need strengthening — right from their computers. The Diagnostic Kit provides a sample test for the CPSM® Exam(s) with automatic scoring and correct answers, including justifications and references for further study. The Web-based CPSM® Diagnostic Kit more closely simulates the test-taking environment than its print equivalent and is used along with the CPSM® Study Guide.
