    I did my budgeting on the 16th of june and i found it very straight forward and similer to the AAT practice CBA .the writing parts which r the interpretation of the variance and the other email, was the ones which i was worried about but it went oky i goues . practice and practic the AAT website CBA budgeting which r 2 of them there and if u r confident with that than u will be fine . i have my financial statment soon and i am kind of strugling because there is so many things to learn and i dont know what am i gona do. best of luck anyways.

    Hi Shell
    I did my CBE budgeting last week. I think I did well, although there were bits of throwback that were not in the revisions materials. It is certainly better than paper based. Good luck with your exams

    I've got my Budgeting exam next monday.

    I've been studying it on my own so any tips would be appreciated. Is there any specific topics I should revise?

    I've been going through the Kaplan book and it is coming together. I just need to go over the fixed overhead variance and the ROCE ratios and I should be ok.

    I've looked at the practice CBTs but haven't attempted them yet. They look a bit more basic than what I was expecting based on whats in the book. Did anyone else find that?

    I also did the Budgeting exam last week and found it very similar to the online ones. I hate the wordy bits too but I just try and make sure my figures are correct.

    Good luck

    I took and passed my budgeting exam a month or so back, just a couple of things to be wary of, I was asked a couple of questions that related back to the ECR unit at level 3, had to pause for a while before answering trying to dig back in my memory.

    Also, the budgeting exam, to me, was easier than the book because my book was geared a lot more to the financial performance exam which seems to have a wider base of questions than budgeting. Infact I ended up using the budgeting book more for the financial performance exam than I did the actual FP book!

    Good luck!
