Level 4

Hello, I've come back to AAT after a break after level 3. I'd like to have a go at home study and have purchased online Financial Statements and Budgeting books from Kaplan 2012/13. I assume the text/syllabus would not have significantly changed within this time? Any advice on other good purchases to make would be appreciated. Thank you!

    I am not sure if you aware but the syllabus has changed from AQA2013 to AQA2016, I am not sure how different it is but I think it would be worth contacting Kaplan / AAT and asking whether you can still revise from the old syllabus. In either case I think books which covers AQA2016 syllabus would make more sense.

    Are you going to study completely independent or you will be looking to study online? For me personally, all i needed to prepare for exam was tutorial, i had workbooks but never used them for either of the AAT levels. Just read the tutorial, did mock exams on AAT and that was it so i think as far as you got Tutorials you should be fine.
    Kind Regards,

    Norvydas Valavicius.

    Hello Norvydas, thank you for your reply. Yes, it may be worth me contacting AAT to confirm. I'm thinking that the fundamentals will be the same and so it's a starting point. I'm looking to study independently, I studied in the classroom previously and didn't find it really worked for me, I achieved more working alone. Many Thanks

    the 2013 books are very different from the current syllabus 2016 - contact me if you need to buy some books second hand (I have few which aren't really used much)
