I wondered if anyone can help me. I am really struggling with unit 7 - ROCE. There is so much information and I really can't understand what to take from the text...

They explain ROCE & ROI on question's 5.2 & 5.3 - then use a totally different equation on question 5.7. I am so confused. I feel like giving up! My over the phone tutor said that you can use ROCE or ROI, it doesn't matter, this confused me even more. Help!

    I have been shown two equations for calculating ROCE

    Roce= Net profit after all expenses
    Owners capital X100

    Roce= Net profit before interest
    owners capital plus ling term loans X100

    Hope this helps, BPP has not touched on ROI

    Thanks for the reply and equation. It's strange that the BPP hasn't touched on the ROI.

    Oh why are there 2 equations?

    How do you find your course provider? There are a lot of mistakes in Kaplan's books - but the tutors are nice.
