Anyone who has attended one of Mr Hood's revision sessions will know that the above is indeed true.
I find it slightly disconcerting that at least one - and maybe two - other forum members seem intent on dragging Sandy Hood into an online squabble of Punch & Judy proportions.
I guess it may be partially flattering to have so many posts and threads aimed in your direction to "prove" you wrong, but it is slightly creepy too, not to say childlike....

I've always enjoyed the revision days I've run in Manchester and would be happy to run one in May this year. My preference would be 1st and 2nd which precedes the bank holiday. I’m already booked up for Sat 8th (CIMA) and the weekends 15/16, 22/23 and 29/30 (AAT in London) so organising one for the north-west will probably need to be done quickly.
In recent years I’ve not mustered a viable group size, and wondered if the daily fee of £100 had put people off. I would hope not, as I do think that you get your money’s worth on these days.
Focusing on the content, I would be in favour of 2 days.
Saturday would be open to PEV candidates as well as MAC students with a programme of variance analysis and ratios, with peripheral topics such as life cycle costing target costing and indices/time series analysis.
Sunday would be open to PCR candidates and focus on forecasting, production/planning budgets and budgetary control.
A class size of 8 would be viable, and I would cap numbers at 12 to ensure that everyone has a chance to raise questions and have my attention.
I do cover the whole of MAC in a day with one class, but I honestly feel that if you need some help then rushing through the whole syllabus helps, but not as much as a steady working through of all the areas. Typically the feedback sheets have said they found one day was very intensive.
The other point about small classes is that we can set the agenda ourselves. Many years ago, I ran a PEV revision class in Bath where all the candidates decided they only wanted to look at one section of PEV, so that is what we did (all day).As a general point when there are fewer people in the class, there is more opportunity to customised the content.
1. Does £200 for 2 days sound ok?
2. Do you know anyone else in the area who might be interested?
3. Please can you email me?
