Unit 10 question

beavis182beavis182 Well-KnownRegistered Posts: 130
I want to do Unit 10 before exams in June. Im a distance learner with Premier Training but looking at the actual "unit cost" with them its £249.00. The osborne book on the Unit is £18.00??

What other info would i be sent from premier training on the subject to help me complete the project that makes it worth paying £249.00?

I am currently an accounts manager doing sales/purchase ledger so am hoping this unit would be to much of a pain.

    Hi beavis

    I'm doing Unit 10 at kaplan distance learning it cost me £161 with book and everything. I didn't work at all so I request a case study, I have started but I don't know if I cover the criteria, it is very hard than BTC and DFS.

    I don't know where to ask for help? If Im doing the right draft this is the hardest part of my study!

    what else did you get other than the book? Does it come with plans on how to set out the project etc as i thought that wud be included in the actual Osborne book?

    Remind me, what's Unit 10? Is that the awful management report?

    Ugh.

    I mean, no probs, it's a breeze :D

    As I did this through college I can't comment from a wholly knowledgeable standpoint. If it were me , I would buy the text book and see if you feel that is enough before forking out on a course.

    The trick is to look at the performance criteria in the portfolio and map that to the answers in the essay. Saying that, my tutor made me revise mine a lot (but I suck at writing reports!)

    You can do your essay on either your sales ledger, or PL or both, it's perfect for the report.

    Good luck.

    I think so, I have got everything I need "The student pack" , on how your report looks like, the problem though is I don't know how to make this report. I have a draft which is nearly 4000 but I have to print and scan these if make sence though.I drank panadol almost everyday just get out of head ache!

    The Osborne book is pretty good, it has sample reports in the back which are a big help when you're just staring at a blank word document with no inspiration.

    Having the support of a tutor though is vital for editing and advice purposes when it comes to getting to the required standard.
