So the college/school you are attending / using for this course has not given you the appropriate materials for your course. That is a little odd, don't you think?

* 502 is just talking to customers mostly to see what they need/want and providing solutions using that as a basis
* 503 is mostly just following the workplace health and safety requirements, documenting their pre-exisitng systems and then planning new systems based on the information gathered about their preexisting systems and the information learnt in 502
There isn't much theory for that apart from product specifications and formulas (for example: what sized systems do i need to handle say 5000 exchange users), some of that is more the business said compared to the IT side.

Well, unless I am missing something huge, there are no direct training materials for these, other than those created by the centres themselves. I work with apprentices who are taking these assignments who, for the best part have learnt the material on the job, along with support work from myself. I do know that colleges have taken this up as a guided learning scheme of work, but as mentioned in this case the college should supply you with the necessary material.
To all those above, how long have you got before the tests? Under centre and awarding body rules I cannot give much away, other than advice based on the topic descriptions.
