    I used exclusively Osborne books for AAT and found them to be perfect. I would recommend them highly.

    In terms of the date of the books you should probably get an up to date book. Although somebody else will likely know more about this than me. :)

    My first advice is to master variance analysis. It is worth half the marks on the exam so I used half my class time to make sure tasks 1 2 3 4 and 6 were passable. I don't recommend learning lots of formulas, I think if you understand variances calculating values follows logically. The other thing this does is that it means you don't have to learn the responses to task 6 after you've done the calculation tasks. Instead all the tasks make sense together because they are all part of a bigger understanding of variances. I'm looking into running a revision day for Financial Performance. If anyone is interested please email me on [email protected] I can go to most places in the UK. But I've had enquiries in the Portsmouth area so I'll probably run one there in the next couple of weeks.
