    Hi all

    I was wondering whether it is advisable to use Kaplans 2012-2013 C01 study text for an exam in November 2013?  I believe it is valid until October 2013 and I dont know whether the content would alter drastically?

    I am studying for C05 and bought the BPP study text. My question is should it be tailored to Irish law considering the fact that I'm sitting my exam in Ireland? The book only references UK law.

    I've got my C03 exam next week and revision is going well. The only chapter I'm struggling with is Chapter 6 - Forecasting.




    I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips? ie- break it down simply for me? or point in in the direction of some youtube videos that will help make it easier for me?

    I wanted some advice about the Certificate level. I failed the C03 Paper for the second time today. (C03 paper being the first ever paper I have studied for CIMA, was advised to do this paper first, have no previous experience in accountancy).

    I recently took my first certificate level exam, C01.  Although I passed, I was appalled that CIMA students were not allowed to use their own calculators in the exam.  This rule substantially slowed me down and I was not able to complete all the questions.

    To add to the frustration, the ACCA students taking their CBAs at the same time and in the same room as CIMA students were allowed to use their own calculators.
