    Are you doing the diploma or NVQ route?

    If you are doing NVQ route:
    Have you done unit 6 or 7 yet? Unit 7 is a nice and small one, while unit 6 is a bit bigger. If you go for unit 7 it ends with a skills test, so you can plan it quite free. Unit 6 ends with an exam, but if you do CBE, you still would be able to do it whenever you want.

    Unit 6 is costing and management accounts, while unit 7 includes a tax return, indexnumbers and presenting data (graphs/ tables).

    If you are doing the diploma route I am not sure which units you have, so I can't really comment on that!

    Hmm, in that case I'm not sure, but I think it's best to either do unit 6 or unit 32. It depends a bit on which you think you will find easier though!

    Shortest and to be honest the simplest is Unit 32 Professional Ethics. A lot of common sense really and should get through it in a month no sweat! Good luck

    I started with unit 32.

    Its pretty much common sense really so if you looking for something straight forward to get done fairly quickly then go for this next!
