Does anyone have a list of the standards we need to know for DFS?

    the standards are on the main website, once you log in and look under the DFS parts, they are the Feb 2009 guidance notes.

    I can also recommend Steves book. You can purchase and download immediately it from

    http://www.accountancystudents.co.uk/

    well worth £13.50 as it breaks each standard down in detail

    Hope that helps

    it breaks down each standard and includes examples of how the standard is used.

    I would say it's more of a revision aid, you need to know something about the standards in the first place but once you've looked through them it really helps you remember them.

    Is it just about the standards or the whole of DFS?
