With effect from 15 August 2016, the M5 Study Text will be available in e-book format. The procedures for retrieving the e-book, as well as the conditions pertaining to the use of the e-book, are as follows:
1. M5 E-Book - Activation Of E-Book Link
(a) Upon successful submission of the examination registration and correct payment, SCI will send to the candidate an e-mail which will provide him or her with the website link to access the e-book.
Note: If you do not receive the confirmation email, please check the Spam/Junk folder as it might have been erroneously classified as a spam mail.
(b) SCI will send the website link to the candidate's e-mail address as specified in the candidate's Online Examination Registration Form. The candidate must ensure that he or she specifies the correct e-mail address on this Form. If there is any change in the e-mail address and / or personal particulars, the candidate must update such information via the website link at: https://www.scicollege.org.sg/UserEdit.asp
(c) To access the e-book, you may login to the SCI website to access to an electronic copy of the study text (eBook) or to download a PDF copy of the text (only applicable to those examinations with eBook provided). Those candidates who need to re-sit for the examination will be granted access to the eBook again (only applicable to those examinations with eBook provided) once they have successfully registered and made payment to re-take examination.
You should refer to your Confirmation of Examination Registration email for the links to the eBook / eMock Examination Access / Supplementary Notes (if applicable).
(d) SCI will grant the e-book access to the candidate up to the date of his or her scheduled examination, without any further exception.
