Remembering IAS

Does anyone have a way of remembering what IAS's belong with which numbers? i have tried relating them to things or just learning them parrot fashion - I think I have got them and then test myself and can't remember them!!

Any help would be appreciated:huh:

    If I was you, I wouldn't really get too hung up in remembering all those IAS Numbers and standards in any great detail. As long as you have a brief understanding on how to apply the ones which are examinable (I don't think this is all of them) then you should be fine. If it's any help, I couldn't remember the IAS Numbers when I took this exam and still passed without much stress.

    From memory ,if your can confidently prepare single/consolidated accounts, cash-flow statements, calculate ratios and comment, discuss elements of financial statements you will have no problem.

    Come August I am sure you will have passed :thumbup1:

    Thanks for this - I feel a bit better now!! I am only looking at the ones which are examinable, and had been led to believe i had to remember them all!! I can remember names and the requirements of each one fine - I just can't match all the numbers!!

    Fingers crossed for August!
