    Hello Tillytots

    Where are you sitting the exam? Have you checked the website of where you go to see if the dates are available on there? I book my exams online and when I select the CBA I would like to sit it presents me with dates available - do you book your exams on a similar system?

    Hope you find the dates soon.

    Do you book online through AAT or BPP.

    Having trouble trying to find any practice revision apart from one CBA. Please help!!!

    You do it through your learning provider rather than AAT. However BPP didn't have any centres near me so I did it through a local accountancy course provider. If you aren't near a BPP centre, (I assume you are with them?) then look at colleges near you and ask them if they will let you sit it there?

    Good Luck

    Me too, and I have the exam this morning!
    I found the HMRC vat website, and also the Business Link website really helpful for explaining some of the information.
    I am using the Osborne book, their assessment is the same as the AAT practice one, and I've done it so many times, I recognise the figures. My tutor lent me another book of questions, which were quite tricky, then when I had done the whole book, explained that they were harder than the exam should be! I'm worried that I'll use the current vat rate, which I use all day at work, instead of the old rate which will be used in the exam - I think its bizarre that they haven't changed the rate for the exams.
    Good luck everyone, and I'll report back later.

    I passed! (not all of the class did, but we have only spent 3 weeks on this unit) The format was very similar to the practice CBA, and you need to use the links provided to the online reference material, so its a good idea to make sure that you are familiar with this. There were a few obscure questions, that I don't remembering covering, which needed some logical thought to sort.
    Are you taking the exam soon?
    Good luck,
