Hi im studying DFS (june exam) I work full time and average about 7-10 hrs a week, im curious what hours other similar distance learners are doing whilst working, also I have not started any of this levels simulations yet, I was told these can go beyond the June 2011 AAT sylabus change, can anyone confirm this? thanks

    Hi,

    At this stage I would say you should be doing at least 1.5 to 2 hours every day and be working on your weaker areas.

    For DFS students, have a look at an article of mine which will help you on your road to success in the exam (well, hopefully!)

    Keep banging out those past papers and questions!!!

    Good luck.

    Steve,

    I had a look at the guidance notes as suggested by yourself, they cover the IFRS's that will be covered in the exam, they also state the paragraph you can look at in the main body of the standard, but not sure if im going mad but cant find the standard definition. im confused.

    Hi,

    When you say 'standard definition' are you trying to trace the paragraph to the full, mainstream standard?

    Regards

    To be honest, I wouldn't refer to the full mainstream standards as they are thousands of pages long!

    If you want a quick link, Deloitte's summaries are quite useful but don't get too bogged down in the intricacies in the standards.

    Regards

    thankyou for your help, I think I am going to have a good look at past papers and hope that that makes it a bit clearer, I think I am just getting to stressed about what to do first and I'm really struggling to find time to study and when I do study I dont think im getting the most out of it as I'm so worried about not doing enough.
