Our SBM Exam Room Notes provide condensed summaries of over 100 key SBM topics, based on our careful review of the SBM syllabus, SBM past papers & ICAEW mocks and the topics tested under the similar Business Change paper of the previous ACA syllabus. The 2017 edition of our SBM Exam Room Notes has been fully updated for the 2017 syllabus and we have added several new sections on key syllabus updates such as Brexit, Digital Transformation, new issues relating to Big Data and cyber-security, brands and brand value, corporate governance, the FRC Risk Guidance and working capital management. In response to the recent trend for SBM past papers to test brought forward derivatives knowledge from the Financial Management paper, the 2017 edition of our SBM Exam Room Notes also now includes reminders on how to perform calculations for forwards, futures, options, Interest Rate Swaps, Forward Rate Agreements and Money Market Hedging. All topics are organised alphabetically for very quick reference under time pressure in the examination and include calculations where relevant. We also provide a list of topics organised by scenario (Acquisition, Change, Finance, Growth etc) so that you can quickly find sets of relevant notes. Using our SBM Exam Room Notes will help you avoid a mind blank in the examination and will keep you focused on points that are more likely to score. Each topic area contains "See also" references together with page references to give you additional areas to think about as well as a direct page reference so that you can instantly access the related information. Please note that this book is designed to serve as a reminder of syllabus content that you have already learned - our topic summaries are designed to act as reminders only and you must also invest some time in learning the syllabus content from the official study materials. We strongly recommend that you use the book in several timed practice attempts at SBM past papers or mocks so that you become familiar with how the book works in a realistic examination setting.

Smashing SBM is based around the same approach as our successful and best-selling Cracking Case book: practical, student-focused and simple advice on what to do to pass an unusual examination in which time management and examination technique are the key to success. This new 2018 edition has been fully updated for the new syllabus and the learning points raised by the 2017 examinations. Given the relatively low number of questions in each SBM examination (just 2) and the very open nature of the requirements, it is vital that you have a way of determining which areas are important and which issues are going to attract fewer marks. Smashing SBM sets out an effective planning methodology (which we call MAPs) that helps you predict the mark allocation of sub-parts of a question and allocate your time effectively. Our MAPs give direction to your answer by providing reminders on how to assess the likely mark allocation whilst also reminding you of key things to do in Q1 and Q2, based on our review of examiner comments. Smashing SBM also contains detailed reviews of the 8 real examination papers set to date with a view to understanding patterns in the question format and content, as well as the mark allocation. Smashing SBM includes detailed revision of key financial management and business strategy topics, as assessed in the real examination papers and ICAEW SBM mock exams. We have also included selected questions from our Business Strategy and Financial Management Q&A books to help you revise these areas very quickly. The book also contains detailed notes on the Specialist Audit & Assurance topics which are examinable at the Advanced Level. Our revision notes focus on areas other than statutory audit as we know that around 10% of the marks will be for these specialised areas such as internal audit, Agreed Upon Procedures, review of prospective information and so on. Smashing SBM contains detailed revision of ethics, including various ethical frameworks, to help you achieve the 5-10% of marks available for ethics in SBM. Smashing SBM is designed to pair up with its sister publication, SBM Exam Room Notes 2018, which provides clear, alphabetically-referenced sets of notes on all key SBM topics to provide exam room reminders of mark-scoring points - perfect for avoiding exam room panic! Full chapter listing of Smashing SBM: PART ONE - How to Plan 1. Introduction: This Book and Why We Wrote It 2. Overview of Smashing SBM(TM): Chapter by Chapter 3.

Our Advanced Level Financial Reporting Exam Room Notes 2017 provide an alphabetically-organised set of quick reference notes of relevance to both the Corporate Reporting and Strategic Business Management Advanced Level examinations. We have worked backwards from the model answers to all Advanced Level past papers, mock exams and Question Bank questions to summarise 79 highly examinable financial reporting areas into sets of key mark-scoring points - ideal to prevent you dropping easy marks by forgetting basic points and also helpful when attacking harder parts of the questions. In addition, as it is vital to revise brought forward knowledge from FAR as part of your preparations for the Advanced Level examinations (in many Corporate Reporting examinations, brought forward FAR knowledge is worth at least as many marks as the new Advanced Level FR topics) the book also includes key model answer points from our review of all FAR past papers, mock exams and Question Bank questions to provide useful reminders - examiner feedback is often that the brought forward knowledge of candidates is weak, losing many potentially easy marks. All content is organised in a sensible alphabetical format so that you can very quickly find the content that you need. This organisation is more efficient than organisation by Study Manual chapter and should save you time in finding the information you require - just head to the "D" section for Deferred Tax, rather than having to remember to look in chapter 22 of the Study Manual. The book has been developed by the same authors behind our very successful BPT Exam Room Notes and SBM Exam Room Notes and is based on our trademark style of simple, clear and succinct explanations of syllabus content. Like all our publications, our Advanced Level Financial Reporting Exam Room Notes 2017 is available with free UK delivery and is fully covered by Amazon's returns policy. Important notice: this set of Exam Room Notes has been designed as a quick reference resource to remind you of content that you should already have studied in detail based on the ICAEW Study Manual and your tuition provider's notes. You must already have studied the Advanced Level syllabus in detail before using this book - the book is in no way designed to replace the Study Manual as a learning resource and if you have invested insufficient time in learning the syllabus content then our Exam Room Notes will not be comprehensible or useful as the book only provides reminders regarding material you must already have studied.

New fully revised and updated edition of our popular and student-focused guide to passing this unusual examination. We have extensively revised the text to take into account the lessons learned from the latest examination (Piccolo Limited, July 2017), including the new markscheme evidence regarding the importance of background and contract outline points, as well as revisions to the testing of the querying of assumptions. The book also contains some related tips provided by the Case Study examiners at the 2017 ICAEW Tutor Conference. The new edition further improves our popular and ICAEW prize-winning "Planning & Reminder Sheets", lovingly honed and prepared to keep you focused on mark-scoring points - as used on our July 2017 tuition courses, which achieved a pass rate of 98%. This book is aimed at both re-sit students and first timers who wish to ensure a pass in this highly unusual examination. Includes �20 discount voucher against our November 2017 live mock exam pack: 5 realistic mock exams based on the live November 2017 Advance Information, giving you 5 opportunities to practise your timing and technique whilst only reading one set of Advance Information (and the only set of Advance Information which really matters to you). (We are aiming to release the mock pack in October 2017.) Cracking Case(TM) explains the ACA Simplified "40 Task Approach(TM)" to cracking the ACA Case Study. Organised into 18 Chapters and 5 Appendices, this book will take you through our carefully designed and practical approach to gaining the marks you need to pass. Includes detailed "student eye" views from 2 students who increased their grades by 20 percentage points each between the July 2012 and November 2012 sittings using the 40 Task Approach(TM). Our unique method is completely focused on the markscheme and unlocks the secrets of a pass through a simplified approach which is radically different from the standard "4 Column Planning Grid" endorsed by many other providers. Successfully used by the July 2014 ICAEW international Case Study prize winner who scored 92% at his first attempt and also by the 2014 ICAEW East Midlands Case Study prize winner who placed first in his region after attending our retake course (having failed first time with another provider). Please also see the numerous other 5 star reviews of this and previous editions as posted on Amazon.co.uk by students we have helped since the first edition of "Cracking Case" was published in 2013.

Fully updated for FA 2015 and the new 2016 edition of the ICAEW Study Manual, including the new tax topics added to the 2016 BPT syllabus. This set of Exam Room Notes organises the complicated BPT syllabus into 86 separate topics, with most topics summarised in 2 pages or less. All topics have been included in alphabetical order for quick reference. Need to know about the Capital Goods Scheme? Go straight to the C section rather than having to remember that CGS is included in chapter 8 of the Study Manual (and whichever chapter of the notes you have received from your tuition provider). We also include a large number of cross references between topics ("See also" reminders) together with the relevant page numbers so that you can quickly check the interactions between taxes to gain more marks. These reminders will also help you to generate more ideas under time pressure. Our BPT Exam Room Notes have been produced by the same tutor team responsible for our bestselling TI Audit Risks & Tests book and are based on the same principle - simple, clear and quick reference material which you can use with ease, even under exam room pressure.

New revised 2016 edition of our very popular Audit Risks & Tests exam room notes book. Provides an alphabetical quick reference list of 70 key audit test and risk areas based on our careful review of the ICAEW Study Manual for Corporate Reporting, the ICAEW Question Bank for Corporate Reporting and the previous "old" TI paper in Business Reporting, together with past papers and ICAEW mocks for both the evolved Advanced Level and "old" TI level. Useful as a quick reference guide to generate reminders in the exam. Reduces the time that you will need to invest in revising Audit, which is a fundamental element of the Corporate Reporting paper, given the removal of Tax from this evolved ACA paper - now 2 of the 3 questions in CR will have a heavy or even exclusive emphasis on audit risks and tests so the importance of this book's information and quick reference approach has been further enhanced under the evolved ACA. This book removes the need for you to prepare your own folder notes on risks and tests, leaving more time to invest in other aspects of Audit or the other elements of the new Advanced Level. In addition to reviewing past papers and mocks, we have carefully summarised the audit tests in the "Audit Focus" sections introduced in the 2015 edition of the Corporate Reporting Study Manual to ensure that you have quick reference to tests which have been emphasised in the new Advanced Level materials (i.e. tests which the examiners appear keen for students to learn and mention but which are somewhat hidden away at the end of the financial reporting chapters). All such tests are now indicated in bold in the relevant sections of our book. All 70 Audit areas are arranged in alphabetical order, allowing quick reference without having to remember which chapter to consult. Where relevant, cross references between Audit areas are also included, giving you reminders and hints. Book can also be used in preparation for Professional Level Audit & Assurance, helping you learn lists of tests for the crucial question on audit tests and procedures.
