Hi All,

We have been given some formulas in our class that we need to learn for the dec exams - PEV & PCR. There is 2 ways of setting the formula out and we were told to not learn the one in the book as they were too complex, is there an easy way of remembering the variance formulas to help me get through?? I am struggling to remember them, which is having a knock on effect with my past exam paper revision!

Its the ones that have 4 parts to them (forgive me for the terrible memeory if not correct)

something like:

SP x AQ - AP X SP (I know this is incorrect) there are obviously 4 formulas for the labour, materials, fixed o/h etc but does anyone have any tips for remembering them?? SQ is always the one that I fall back on when i do have it written down.
