I have my first exam coming up on the new Syllabus based on Management account - Decision and Control it relates to Financial performance in AQ2013. There is so many Formulas to remember and so much to learn, does anyone have any tips or ways to remember the formulas?

    Hi Sineadp
    I like to use flash cards, either or paper or you can create some electronically free on https://quizlet.com. Quizlet has a app for IOS/Android so you can look at them on your phone.

    Also, make sure to practice the exams - I find that repetition helps me to remember.

    Good luck.

    hi @jass83 you say that the paper was different to the book questions. Any recommendations on where to go for question practice instead please, or areas you feel would be worth while focusing on.
    Kind Regards

    I am with you on this one!! I found it very tough and I am sure I will fail but I am looking at it as a positive experience as next time I should be able to pass now I have a feel for what it is all about at level 4.

    Being able to work backwards with the variances quickly would help immensely. Really try to understand the techniques and not just by rote learning. Time is of the essence. There just isn't enough time so being able to answer the questions with confidence and applying the techniques to any scenario will help you work your way through the time available. I didn't enjoy this exam one bit but onwards and upwards. Good Luck to anyone about to embark......

    I haven't had any more exams but I have been told this was by far the worst.

    I haven't had my results back yet but mine was a definite fail. Every question in the exam was so difficult and different to how the book was giving you the questions

    Can anyone tell me how you work out a linear regression question with an index figure?
