    Can I ask the OP how long you've been studying FRA for? No disrespect but if you haven't yet managed to nail the relatively simple ETB with one month to go for the June exams, you're really gonna have to really put some hours in now for you to further understand the component parts of the P&L and Balance Sheet.

    I very rarely used acronyms when learning since it's better to understand the entries in their correct formats and why they go there rather than having an over reliance on memorising numerous little sayings.

    I have been studying since September, I have passed my unit 6 simulation and find out the results tonight for Unit 5. Trust me, I have put in many hours revision for unit 5 but I have troubles remembering some of the basic stuff, give me the tricky questions and I'll nail them, but the simple stuff throws me every time! I was just wondering if anyone had any ways of remembering things. Everyone studies different ways, I find it easier to think of acronyms.
