I took a year out while I had a baby, and now I've come back in full force I have BTX, Statement and the project left and then I'm done.

But I cannot get my head into Business Tax... I feel like I've done one chapter well and then answer some green light questions and they are wrong.

What's the trick to keep everything in your brain....????

    i am in the same boat it is very tricky to say the least we just have to keep going and hope for the best :001_smile:

    i find reviewing what you learnt the next day helps and then after that maybe 3 days later , or prompts to recall information

    Understanding is the key to business tax. Taxation is one of those areas that if you purely try to memorize notes and methods... you will forgot a lot.

    Try to grasp the reasoning and once you understand it'll be easier. All the important figures are given as data in the exam.

    Well I've booked my exam for next month, I'm on holiday next week so I will have just under 3 weeks to study my butt off before I sit it. Fingers crossed for good results. Has anyone sat the exam, is it a lot like the assessments on the website, as some of the level 4 exams I have taken have not been anything like the assessments.
