In our last issue, let’s look at the study options for those of you who have chosen to study on your own.
Studying on your own doesn’t mean you are studying without support.
There is a wide range of resources to help you prepare for and succeed in your exams.
These will help you understand where you went wrong in your previous exam attempt(s) and will provide you with guidance in the way you approach your retake.
The guides provide tips for success, signpost ACCA resources and can be used either online or printed in PDF format.

You can also get tips for success, extracts from some of the resources available and interactive, clickable checklists to help keep you on track.

Exam Support Resources
We have some great exam-specific resources (for example examiner’s reports and syllabus and study guides) to help you prepare for your exams.
Use the Exam resource finder to locate study materials.
To support you practising questions for your exams, we have created Practice Tests, available for all computer-based exams.
These tests replicate the live exam, providing you with a great exam experience.
You will also get personalised feedback on your performance, enabling you to identify your strengths and weaknesses across syllabus areas before you take your actual exam.
Practice Tests can be purchased and accessed via MyACCA. You can buy individual tests or a set of three.

Approved Content Providers
It’s really important that you use study materials from an Approved Content Provider.
These materials are reviewed by ACCA’s examining team and are updated to reflect the latest syllabus content, examinable documents and exam structure.
The Question and Answer Banks they provide are also a great source of exam-style questions, and should be used as a primary resource for you to practice exam questions.
