The cheapest way to do Level 3

Hi, I would like to start at Level 3 but not sure if this is the cheapest option to achieve this.

1)Register with AAT.
2)Buy the books myself - any recommendations for providers and second hand options would be
3) Plan to sit the exams at Kaplan as its close to me but will investigate further

Does anyone have any experience of trying to complete this way?
Many thanks

    Hi i am studying level 3 and have been for two months. I was completely stuck with what option to go with in the end I opted for Mcarthur Morgan. On demand course its 675 for the course I pay 50 a month. They send all books videos etc and it's brilliant completely at my own pace. Thanks Beccy

    I'm also using a kaplan centre in Southampton to do my exams

    But also if I'm completely honest I could have just bought the books through kaplan and did the practice mocks through aat until I was confident. There's always that option

    It depends on the cost of the books. It might be cheaper to get the self study options from some providers where they'll send you the books (study and question) and provide some extra support simply because they'll get a discount on the books..

    I used Accountancy Learning their current Level 3 cost for self study is £279 and the tutor is £749. You pay for your exams yourself with these options.
