    Hello Billie.

    I did my first exam yesterday on Bookkeeping Transactions and scored 97%.

    Read over the theory and understand it but my advice is to keep taking practice assessments and go over the answers afterwards and see where you went wrong. You’ll gain an insight into the sorts of questions that the real exam asks you.

    I did about 14 mock exams in total. Exam practice is key!

    Good luck!

    Hi Billie

    I sat and passed both the Bookkeeping Transactions and Bookkeeping Controls last week.

    My biggest tip would be to practice as much as possible. Have another read through your study materials and make use of the AAT study resources; I found the Green Light Tests were great for showing where I needed to focus my revision. Also, as LeapyUK mentioned, do as many mock exams as you can to familiarise yourself with the questions. Good luck!
