Hi all

Has anyone had experience using the different books, just wondering as I did level 3 using bpp books, and looking to start level 4, noticed Osbourne books are so much cheaper than kaplan, has anyone had experience using both? As I am a self studied and cost is an issue, just wondering if I go for cheaper Osbourne its going to be harder to pass exams

    I used the Osborne Books Distance Learning on my own (no College) through the whole AAT qualification and passed all exams first time having used them if that means anything.

    I have used both BPP and Osborne for AAT and much prefer Osborne. Wish they did ACCA I have Kaplan books for F4 and can't say I'm impressed

    Thanks guys

    I'll buy a set of level 4 Osbourne books and save a fortune, someone gave me a few Kaplan books and I wasn't impressed flicking through, and noticed the £23 price on the ba
    ck for 1 book
