unit 30, Osborne Book or Kaplan Book?


Hello everyone!

I have been studying for the certificate level since July and have been using the Osborne book for this unit. As I have now enrolled with Kaplan and received their book I am unsure what book to use as my main study aid.

I have become familiar with the Osborne book and want to continue using this book. Would it be best to carry on as I have been doing and then using the Kaplan book at the end of each chapter to get used to their way of working?

Any advice would be great.

I am 25 from Wombourne in West Midlands and I am doing this course after completing a design degree in 2005 only to find it a waste of time! If anyone would like to share their experiences of this course that would be good!

    Ive only ever used osborne however this was the tool used at college not by an external provider - however i dont think it matters much as it is the AAT that write the papers so i dont think they will surround it around one type.

    My advise is to go with what your comfotable

    Hope that helps
