Mentor

Hi everyone - whilst I am not new to AAT (I am currently studying Technician level 4 through Kaplan home study). I would like to know if any one would be interested in being a mentor or perhaps working with me - NOT doing my course work just someone I could bounce ideas and thoughts off, maybe find we could help one another - not looking for meet up unless your in my home town as I believe this could be discussed through here and email.

Thank you - Philip

    Hi Philip i have just enrolled with Kaplan to start Technician level.I am starting with DFS. I did the level 3 at college, so distance learning is new to me! I have joined this forum hoping this will help me through the units. Which unit are you doing? Becky

    Hi i have just enrolled with BPP to start Technician level via distance learing and online classroom. I am starting with the unit 10 project and the Credit Management & control exam. I have been away from studying for four years so a bit of a shock to the system to be back studying. I did the level 3 at college four years ago, so distance learning is new to me too. Kim

    Hi. I am studying with Premier training.

    Just started my technician and after having a big operation and been ill afterwards I have slightly lost the enthusiam to study, so having a mentor or others to push me would be a great help.

    I'm looking for a mentor.....

    Perhaps we can talk online and get together through the internet, sorry to hear about your op - hope all recovery goes well xx - as menitoned I don't necessarily need pushing just nudges in the right direction so to speak - perhaps we can all help one another

    Hi

    I'm also studying via Prenmier Training. I am out of work at the mo, so manage to get a few hours study during the week, when the kids are at school. At present, I am on unit 31 level 2.

    I would also be interested to share ideas wth other students regarding the study material.

    Perhaps we could form an on line discussion forum, or something similar?

    Thanks

    I am v interested in a discussion group

    I think a discussion group would be perfect only problem I see is that we are all studying different units I'm doing Budgeting level 4

    Then i joined the distance learing i paid for the online course for the level 10 project and the online Credit Management & control. But i also purchased the Distance learing Budgeting so hopefully start in a few weeks when i have got to grips with the other. After hearing its a indepth topic, think i might have bit off more than i chew lol. Fingers crossed its no going to be as bad as i am thinking.

    Mentor cont.....

    I must admit I was conscious there was a lot of work involved re the level 4 AAT but I aren't currently working and spending many hours a day working through the text, I find copying the text out helps me but Gees its hard work but I remain positive but thats not easy...................tbc

    Hi Becky

    Yep not too bad - Im a bit behind though. What books are you using? Ive got Osbourne, they seem ok.
    I think that it is remembering the international accounting standards and getting used to using different terminology thats not too easy! Let me know how you get on
