    Definitely Osbourne books I've tried many companies over the year and found Osbourne to be the best and cheapest actually!

    Cheers thanks for the reply any particular ones that would cover all the levels or are they separate

    They are all seperate but each book covers each unit in the level they have tutorial books which explain what you need to learn and you can also buy seperate practise question books as well to practise what is expected in the exams!

    Hello, I am just about to start the AAT Level 2 course and I have been looking at osbourne books, do you need the tutorial and the workbook or are you normally only required to purchase one?

    Any advice on this would be much appreciated.

    Thank you, do you just sign up to osbourne books online? I spoke to somebody from my training provider and they said I will be starting with the elements of costing and said that was the only book I would need for the minute.

    All the books they sell are here http://www.osbornebooks.co.uk/aat_accounting_aq2016
    in order you can also buy their work books and a wise guide (which is like a pocket guide i believe)- all really helpful and necessary, when you purchase their books you also get access to it in e-document format so you can print pages out too- hope this helps.

    I have been using the books from First Intuition, just about to sit my 3rd module and have not had any issues
