Hiee Fabiana.. Which author’s notes did you use to study?
September 4, 2016 at 7:57 am
She used the free OpenTuition lecture notes and lectures!
July 28, 2016 at 1:09 am
I had absolutely ZERO background in accountancy, economics or any business related subject but decided to do ACCA anyways. I was kind of worried about how would things pan out because ACCA tuition classes usually have students with some prior knowledge and I felt nervous that I’d be holding back the whole class.. And then I discovered this absolutely wonderful website: OpenTuition!! John Moffat is amazing! I loved that he just doesn’t teach the rules, he teaches the logic. A fantastic teacher. I used the F2 course notes, lectures and practice questions and went through half of the Kaplan Revision Kit and prepared for F2 in ONE week. Passed the CBE on first attempt today, Alhamdulillah. (I wouldn’t recommend that, though.) Even though I passed, I still intend to complete the whole Revision Kit so that the knowledge actually settles long-term and isn’t just a one week thing. Really really grateful for opentuition. I can enjoy the flexibility I need with first class teachers.
July 28, 2016 at 7:00 am
Thank you for the comment, and congratulations 🙂

the free access is commendable. lm just starting my acca qualification with no prior accounting expirience what is the shortest possible period that one might need to sit for F1 to F3 CBE
March 26, 2016 at 3:14 pm
great videos they are precise and short
March 27, 2016 at 8:51 am
March 16, 2016 at 3:56 pm
Great videos ? great help.. Passed FMA last week
March 17, 2016 at 6:17 am
March 15, 2016 at 3:04 pm
Dear Sir i want to appreciate you for your efforts to make this videos all the topics are very well explained. I need your advice are these lectures and notes provided by open tuition are enough to appear for ACCA exams or you recommend some extra efforts to do ?
March 15, 2016 at 7:18 pm
You should ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forums and not as a comment on a lecture.
However, our lectures are a complete course and cover everything you need to be able to pass the exam well, provided that you also buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers. They contain lots of exam standard questions to practice on, and practice is vital.
March 1, 2016 at 6:52 pm
Why are people complaining? Go and pay for it from Kaplan then! Keep up the good work 🙂
March 1, 2016 at 7:33 pm
Thank you 🙂
March 1, 2016 at 7:00 am
video stops after first four minutes. whole video is not being played. any fix to it?
March 1, 2016 at 11:47 am
The video is working fine – it must be your internet connection.
Please visit the support page – the link is above.
February 28, 2016 at 6:03 am
keep up the good work sir i know its free .something better than nothing.
February 28, 2016 at 9:41 am
You are welcome 🙂
February 27, 2016 at 3:23 pm
Excuse me, could you provide scripts? I failed to listen to some parts of this lecture.
February 27, 2016 at 8:49 pm
Sorry – but it is not possible.
February 22, 2016 at 7:52 pm
this is not fair i live in country that we have lots of problem about internet connection and as well as that we have problem about international payment (although cause of exchange rate it is tough to pay ) why it is not possible to download.
February 23, 2016 at 8:12 am
No fair? We are providing this service free of charge. If you can find another tuition provide who provides their services free of charge then use them!!
If we allowed lectures to be downloaded we would have to charge.
February 23, 2016 at 3:44 pm
opentuition is perfect for development country
think about society with horrible internet connection, wages and exchange rate.
by the way thanks a lot for your kind attention.
February 24, 2016 at 11:15 am
But. What do you expect us to do? No other tuition firms allow lectures to be downloaded, and all the others charge for access as well!
February 17, 2016 at 12:50 am
Great lectures. Is there a way to download the videos.?
February 17, 2016 at 7:01 am
No – the lectures can only be watched online.
It is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.
January 20, 2016 at 12:35 pm
lm jus starting to do acca and wanted to write all the cbe in march. how do l access yo videos and notes..kindly help me
January 20, 2016 at 3:38 pm
Above the lecture on this page there are two blue buttons – one is the link to the lectures, and the other is the link to the lecture notes.
January 19, 2016 at 10:33 am
dear sir … i need explanations on different levels of planning
October 24, 2016 at 3:52 pm
There is enough explanation in the free lecture notes.
January 12, 2016 at 2:20 pm
Hello Sir,that was a well explained piece on the difference between Financial Accounting and Management Accounting.
January 13, 2016 at 8:23 am
December 17, 2015 at 10:29 am
sir if we see on chapter 1 question no 3. there is mentioned cost of producing information is greater than value of the benefit of management . plz sir explain i dont understand properly this statement and logic with good explanation
December 17, 2015 at 2:40 pm
The only point of producing management information is to enable the business to become more profitable – by finding ways of increasing their income or ways of reducing their costs.
However, if the cost of collecting the information (e.g. extra staff etc.) if more than the extra profit that they make because of it, then it is not worth collecting it.
October 5, 2015 at 4:09 pm
Have you looked at the contents page?
There are answers to all of the examples and also to all of the tests.
The examples are worked through also in the lectures and there is no point in using the notes without watching the free lectures – it is in the lectures that we explain and expand on the notes.
September 19, 2015 at 1:30 pm
It data that is processed to then become information (not the other way round 🙂 )
(See the last sentence of section 2 of the Lecture Notes)
September 19, 2015 at 8:39 pm
Oh I see, I clearly didn’t read it properly. Thanks for your quick response and answer 🙂 Much appreciated!
August 8, 2015 at 10:51 am
Hi sir, may I know where can I get the answer of Chapter 1 example 1 (pg6)- Comparison of management accoumting with finiancial accouting, couldn’t find the example from course note, video and forum. Thanks. 🙂
August 8, 2015 at 11:17 am
I go through the example in this lecture!
(This example start about 6 minutes into the lecture)
August 8, 2015 at 8:42 am

August 8, 2015 at 9:11 am

July 10, 2015 at 11:58 pm
I am a intermediate student.i want to join accounting field while i got 437 marks out of 550 in intermediate examination.Can i join accounting field without any fear.
July 11, 2015 at 9:46 am
There is no reason why you should not be able to study ACCA.
However you should post this question in the general ACCA forum on here and not as a comment on a lecture. Other students will then be able to give you advice as well.
July 12, 2015 at 12:15 am
May 27, 2015 at 6:37 am
seems like many vedios are not available in china or what. Many vedios are not accessiable for me in china. Damn. But I really appreciate your work. Thanks a ton.
May 27, 2015 at 7:18 am
Use TOR browser, Or any VPN service that are popular in china to go around this..
April 22, 2015 at 12:45 am
I don’t know if this is the right place to say this but I woud like to say thanks to John.
I had F2 exam today(1st attempt) and passed it. It was extremely difficult than I thought but I did it. I used BPP textbook, revision kit & your lectures of course. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication.
April 22, 2015 at 8:03 am
That is great news – many congratulations 🙂
April 4, 2015 at 12:23 am
How do I download the lectures. I can’t find the final download link to complete the download. Thanks in anticipation

You cannot download the lectures!!!
The can only be watched online – it is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.
March 14, 2015 at 8:15 am
Try looking at the contents page 🙂
The answers are at the back of the Lecture Notes.
February 28, 2015 at 9:41 pm
I have a question. Is cost accounting the same what management accounting?
Thank you in advance for your answer.
February 28, 2015 at 9:58 pm
Cost accounting is one aspect of management accounting. (Cost accounting is primarily concerned with determining the costs of what is produced, whereas management accounting also includes things like the preparation of budgets)
February 28, 2015 at 10:44 pm
thank you for your answer
February 26, 2015 at 4:25 am
Dear sir, i would like to be clear with cost center,profit center,profit center and investment center.
February 26, 2015 at 8:44 am
It depends on what the divisional manager has responsibility for. Just costs (cost centre); costs and revenues (profit centre); or costs, revenue, and new investment (investment centre).
January 6, 2015 at 6:39 am
Good day everybody
Sir/ Thank you for the lectures here as this my first time using it, I have just gone through chapter 1 lectures in combination with the lecture notes and I would recommend it 100%.

Sir, I just did my F2 and F3 paper exams and I really tried my best, but which one is easier between CBE and Paper based? I am still awaiting my result.

November 9, 2014 at 3:32 pm
November 7, 2014 at 7:06 am
Hope u good!
I havent seen lectures of job,batch and service costing do 1 have to study from course notes?
November 7, 2014 at 4:25 pm
No – there are no lectures on job, batch and service costing. It is because there are no extra techniques involved extra to the techniques covered in the techniques covered in the existing lectures.
November 7, 2014 at 5:31 pm
October 15, 2014 at 11:05 pm

Thank you ACCA Tutor, I can never forget assistant you are rendering on this platform.
August 12, 2014 at 1:42 pm
You are very welcome 🙂
August 12, 2014 at 12:03 pm
Hi John, am a newly enrolled student of ACCA, i request for the most cheap and easy way to pass my first 3 papers. Any suggestions?
August 12, 2014 at 12:07 pm
What I would suggest is that you download out free Course Notes for each paper, and watch all our free lectures that go with them
If you have any problems or questions, then you can ask in our Ask the Tutor Forums and we will reply quickly.
The one book you really must get hold of for each paper is a Revision/Exam Kit from one of the approved publishers. These books contain lots of practice questions, and it is vital that once you feel you are happy with the topics (from our lectures) that you practice as many questions as possible.
Remember again – any problems, just ask in the relevant Ask the Tutor Forum.
July 28, 2014 at 3:26 pm
Hi Mr John,
i passed my CBE F2 today and i used only your videos, notes and a revision kit. I also passed F1 this way and i can say that this website is a real pillar for my studies. So i wanted to thank you for all these free resources!!! Even the big chapters become easy with your explanations.
July 28, 2014 at 3:46 pm
Many congratulations on passing, and thank you very much for your comments 🙂
November 10, 2014 at 9:46 pm
Hello david wich revision kit did u use?
July 7, 2014 at 3:49 am
I’m from China. This is the first time i came here. I ‘d like to know if acca lectures here could be applicable to ACCA exam in China. In order to pass the exam, is it ok that i just learn lectures here and do some past exam papers as practice?
July 7, 2014 at 7:04 am
Yes certainly – it is the same exam in China
However, the ACCA does not publish pas exam papers for Paper F2. So get hold of an Exam/Revision Kit from one of the approved publishers. They contain lots of questions to practice and it is vital to practice as many questions as possible.
May 19, 2014 at 2:00 pm
I just wanted to thank you for all the lectures and notes etc… I sat the F2 paper yesterday and got 78% … I only used Opentuition … I got 84% in F1 too through your lectures.
Good stuff thank you
May 19, 2014 at 3:28 pm
Congratulations – that is very good news and I am very pleased for you 🙂
November 10, 2014 at 9:52 pm
Did u use any revision kit?
November 10, 2014 at 10:27 pm
Revision Kit is a must, does not matter if BPP or Kaplan.. You need to practice as many test questions as you can.. practice makes perfect! 🙂
April 6, 2014 at 10:18 am
But BBP says that management accounts are both an historical record and a future planning tool.
April 6, 2014 at 10:44 am
Whats the problem?
Any record is by definition an historical record, but that it not the purpose of management accounting. The purpose is to improve the way we manage the business in the future – that is why it is called management accounting.
It is the purpose of financial accounting to keep an historical record, and if that is all we wanted then there would be no point in doing management accounts as well!
March 20, 2014 at 4:43 am
Thanks. God bless you forever.
February 23, 2014 at 10:57 am
hi i just wanted to know are these lectures updated for the new format?
February 23, 2014 at 1:35 pm
The syllabus has not changed for F2, only the format, and so the lectures do not need updating at all.
(Except for the introduction lecture which still mentions the old format – this lecture will be changed this week to mention the new format, in time for the change.)
February 22, 2014 at 3:53 pm
Sir i need your help 🙁
i have attempted f2 (FMA) three times but i got 36,48 and 46 marks respectively
although paper was easy but when the result came it was unsuccessful attempt
please help me how to pass
your help will relly be appreciated i am in very difficulty
February 22, 2014 at 5:34 pm
There are only two ways to pass.
One is obviously to really make sure that you understand everything – if you have not watched my lectures then do so.
The other is to practice and practice as many questions as you can. I assume that you have a Revision/Exam Kit from one of the approved publishers (if not, then you must get one). Make sure that you can do every question and that you learn from those that you get wrong. When you are confident that you can answer every question then you must start practicing under time pressure. It is when you are under time pressure in the exam that it is so easy to make silly mistakes even when you understand the topic.
February 17, 2014 at 6:55 pm
I have passes F2 with 64% marks. I have passed F3 already.Thanks open tuition and specially sir John, without your lectures i do not even think about starting study again. Thank you v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v very much. you people are doing a great job. keep it up. thanks a lot
February 17, 2014 at 7:07 pm

February 11, 2014 at 3:01 pm
thanks alot sir john moffat, i passed today with the help of the cource notes and lectures i got 56 thanks alot
February 11, 2014 at 3:17 pm
Thats great – many congratulations 🙂
February 9, 2014 at 5:58 am
Thanks, John. Found this lecture very useful.
February 4, 2014 at 3:54 pm
Is these lectures enough for passing the f2 exam ? 🙂
February 4, 2014 at 4:04 pm
Yes – provided that you really do understand them and also that you get hold of a Revision/Exam Kit from one of the approved publishers and practice as many questions as possible.
The lectures and Course Notes cover most of the syllabus – certainly enough to be able to pass the exam well. However they do not claim to cover 100% – for that you need to buy a Study Text from one of the publishers.
February 4, 2014 at 4:07 pm
Thanks , and dose this carry out all the chapters for the exam ?
February 4, 2014 at 4:16 pm
I am not sure what you mean.
February 4, 2014 at 4:21 pm
Is this lectures having \covering all chapters for this exam ? 🙂
February 4, 2014 at 4:28 pm
February 4, 2014 at 4:38 pm
Thanks alot 🙂
January 22, 2014 at 8:46 pm
I sat my CBE F2 yesterday at LSBF. I passed it & scored 74%.
A lot, & i mean it, a lot of credit goes to your lecture, especially as I am self-studying. I am really indebted to you for this.
I noticed at least 2 of the candidates failed with mid-40s score. I feel sorry for them and wish them luck for the next time.
To be honest, first 8-10 questions were really confusing & lengthy but things got manageable after that. I think the key is not to lose the cool.
I am planning to take F3 mid-feb & will depend a lot upon your lectures again.
Once again, thanks a lot.
January 23, 2014 at 6:24 am
Congratulations – well done 🙂
November 10, 2014 at 9:50 pm
did u use any revision kit or just the lectures lectures and notes?
January 22, 2014 at 5:54 am
Thanks. Mr. John for reply.
January 21, 2014 at 8:58 pm
I am very new to Accounting and is challenge for me. I am doing now FIA. (F1 F2 F3). what is the strategy should i use for STUDY? Please advice from your experience?
January 20, 2014 at 5:14 pm
I assume that you are asking? 🙂
All of our lectures and Course Notes are relevant for the 2014 exams.
From February 26 the format of the computer based exam will change, but the syllabus remains the same.
December 6, 2013 at 5:09 pm
Is it necessary to be able to do service cost calculations (e.g. tonne-km) for F2?
November 25, 2013 at 6:47 pm
Every one praises this site. I will try as well and hopefully it will help me too.
November 11, 2013 at 8:47 am
Thank You John and OPENTUITION…. I used your lectures and nostes and I have passed my F2. Even though I was able to score only 52 %…. Does it make any difference in future?
November 11, 2013 at 4:24 pm
Thank you, and congratulations.
A pass is a pass, and it will not make any difference in the future 🙂
November 29, 2013 at 9:14 pm
Wow man congratulations for passing your F2. May I seek you guidance as well please. How can we get in touch qureshi brother?

Thank you for all of your video lectures.
I managed to pass ACCA F2 today SOLELY with the help of your video’s, lecture notes and flash cards. This is an alien subject to me as I am in a completely different professional field.
Astounded this is all for free!
Once again, thank you very much and I look forward to taking ACCA F3.
June 20, 2013 at 2:23 pm
Thank you for you comments, and congratulations 🙂

Hi admin i am searching for Chapter Labour Cost
May 9, 2013 at 5:05 pm
There is a chapter in the Course Notes (Chapter 6). I have not recorded a lecture on it because it really isn’t needed – the Course Notes should be understandable without a lecture.
April 24, 2013 at 1:12 pm
please opentuition can i have access to download the video lectures on f2 and f3, if yes how can i go about it…
April 24, 2013 at 1:41 pm
This website is free only because students watch lectures on line, so lectures are not downloadable. sorry, that’s the only way to keep it free,
for the money saved on your tuition, invest in internet connection
April 24, 2013 at 1:04 pm
opentuition is the best for student nationally or internationally for all study materials this is a advantages we should grab it tightly, i find the course very simple and easy, Bravo opentuition
