Professional Ethics BPP book question

Tjcgti Registered Posts: 40 Epic contributor 🐘
Hi all,

I have almost finished my whole course but have got one exam left.

I do have one question though, not sure if someone might be able to help, but I have the Professional Ethics Bpp book which is 'For Assessments from 1 September 2011'. Now I know that there is a more up to date book however I personally don't see any reason for me to purchase that book. I had to purchase the new 'Business Tax' book understandably as different rates are used year on year however I don't see anything major changing within this book.
Is anyone able to shed some light on whether there are major differences in these books?

Thanks in advance

    Hello Tristan I would check the new AQ2013 standards against the AQ2010 standards to ensure that all areas are covered. Would it be possible for you to borrow a copy of the book to see if there have been many changes/updates? I don't know your personal circumstances, however for the cost of a new book, I would rather pay that than have to pay for an exam resit. If you attend BPP for classes or a college, perhaps a quick chat with them may clear up any uncertainties regarding the content of your current book. good luck with your exam. JC :o p.s. apologies for layout etc. however this new forum keeps crashing on me, restoring tabs, and reformatting (extra line spaces etc.) and it is very frustrating... I can't keep using it like this... :(

    Hi Jo,
    I thought that only new and existing students, that are starting a new level, of the AAT qualification from 1st September will be required to register for the AQ2013 standards. I have 16 months to complete the level based on AQ2010 standards.
    Think might be a good idea to give BPP a call like you say (home learning). However they might for profit purposes encourage you to buy the new book....
    I haven't logged on for a while and don't really like this layout. Took about 20 minutes to post my original question to....
    Thanks for your advice Jo!

    Hi Tristan

    If this is your last unit to complete you are on AQ2010 standards. If that's the case you have a right book and there are no changes in PEAF standards.

    you will be taking a computer based test instead of doing a project under AQ2013 standards.

    Make sure that you have entered for the correct exam- PEAF!
