I have failed Financial statements three times now

I can not get my head around cash flow and the five workings.

I have just taken a look at Steve Collings book IFRS for dummies has anyone used this and do they think it would help. Dont want to buy another book that wont help.

I do rate Steve...........confused

Got the exam 28 May not sure if I shouldput it for another month

    Is it worth trying to go on a revision course?

    I found this really helped me to consolidate my knowledge of the subject, that and past papers.

    It may be worth looking at the areas you are weakest in and really concentrating on those areas. Do you know what you failed on?

    I bought Steve's book and I have to say its really good. I've also got Clare Finch's book that might help you as well but both are good books and they know there stuff.

    Hello Denise

    First, don't think that not getting through the exam is an actual "fail" - put it down to further preparation. You will have a good idea in terms of expectations for the next one.

    My book does cover the statement of cash flows in chapter 2 and goes through the workings. What I suggest you do is to have a look at the chapter, see if it makes sense and if you would like me to have a chat with you about the statement of cash flows, I am more than happy to do so. You can send me your contact details to my email: Sometimes a quick chat about something makes all the difference.

    Hope the wedding goes OK on the 2nd.

    All the best
