Good Afternoon,

I have read all the post on here re IAS revision and have read people saying about making cards up with key information. I have tried this numerous times on clock cards, large stickies and have now reverted back to my pad. For IAS1 I now have a A4 sheet of paper full of notes. Could someone give me an example of there previous revision?

thank you

    Are you doing it in the workplace or SIM? I did the SIM and I just thought about what I would do if I went into the company and put each problem in risk order and then just made changes

    are you talking about the ICAS, thought you were at first but the more i read the less it sounded like it, if you are talking about the ICAS don't bother revising, you will be with the assessment for a long time and you will change your mind and essay several times, just start writing and move from there

    Hello

    You are talking about learning the IAS/IFRS for Financial Statements. Unfortunately, I do not have any revision cards which I can share with you. When I studied for this exam (a while ago now) I just read and read the standards over and over and made lots of notes... a bit like your A4 sheet.

    I know this doesn't help you and I do hope that someone else may have some study aid/cards which they can share with you.

    Good luck with the exam, when do you sit it?

    Hello

    Me again!

    Have you looked at this... http://www.iasplus.com/standard/standard.htm

    There is a section on this page that states: Summaries of Standards. Click on an IAS or IFRS number below to go to an unofficial summary of the standard. Please remember that the summaries of IASs and IFRSs only cover highlights and are not a substitute for reading the entire standard. They should not be relied on for preparing financial statements. The summaries reflect the latest revisions to the standard (including some revisions whose adoption is permitted but not yet required) unless otherwise stated.

    This link is for IAS1 http://www.iasplus.com/standard/ias01.htm

    There is still a large amount of information, however it is presented in sections with bullet points which may help you select key points for learning and revision purposes.

    I hope you may find these summaries helpful.

    Thank you very much for your help and time Jo. My exam is 19th April. I'm ashamed to say, that this is my 3rd time sitting this exam, so I have taken a different approach to studying by writing and reading everything over and over...It's the last one I need to be MAAT so hopefully it will be 3rd time lucky :)

    Hello

    No worries - I enjoy helping other people and also find that it helps to consolidate my learning.

    I wish you all the very best and hope you do pass this time :)

    I find that the best way for me (most times) is to keep reading and writing everything out.
