DFS Students - A Must Read

Steve CollingsSteve Collings Experienced MentorRegistered Posts: 997
Hi Guys,

I have put together an article relating to DFS in June 2010 and how I think you should prepare for this paper.

I hope those of you studying DFS for June 2010 will benefit from it.

Kind regards,
Steve

    In addition to my article above, I recommend the following for DFS (not all of the contents of each article will be relevant to DFS but broader reading never did any harm!):

    Provisions and Contingencies
    HP and Leasing
    Where has all the money gone article relating to IAS 7 'Statement of Cash Flows'
    Inventories
    Error Correction and IAS 8
    Another Statement of Cash Flows article

    Should keep you going for now!!

    Best wishes

    Hi,

    You need to log in to MYAAT. In the search engine type 'DFS Guidance' and you should see the Guidance Notes as a Word document. You will need the February 2009 ones (unless they have updated them, but I haven't seen any updated ones).

    Kind regards

    There are a couple more articles which I feel will help DFS students:

    The Framework - very important!!!
    The consolidated statement of comprehensive income
    The consolidated statement of financial position
    IAS 16 and revaluation
    IAS 17

    Best wishes

    Steve, I could kiss you for this!
    It got to the point where I was so confused I wasn't quite sure where to start revising. Mostly on consolidating the statements for parents and subs. And then I found this page and now I can actually start breathing again and revise in time for Thursday.
    Thank you so much!

    I saw this thread earlier today and I'm using the links for my ACCA studies.

    Steve it has to be said you really are a star for doing these for all us students. You explain things so well in your articles you're better than the text books!

    I could also kiss you!! :)
