    Preparing for Your Event

    OFFICIAL CARMEL DECA STUDY GUIDES

    These study guides will help you prepare for your exams at the district, state, and international competitions!  They are "live" documents that will be updated throughout the year.  There are four study guides that specifically address key performance indicators on the following cluster exams:

    • Marketing
    • Hospitality
    • Finance
    • Business Management AND Principles

    ROLE PLAY SRT PRACTICE OPPORTUNITIES

    Nothing prepares you for district and state better than PRACTICING your role plays with other Carmel DECA students who have been successful in the past.  Check out the SRT ROLE PLAY SCHEDULE and come as often as you can.

    In addition, you need to STUDY OLD CLUSTER EXAMS for your event and practice them to get ready for your exam, which counts as 1/3 of your score.
