I am planning to do F2, F3 and F4 exams by december.
How possible is this plan?
If not possible, how long does it usually take to study thoroughly for one exam?

Kindly tell me what is the difference between Stratified Sampling & Quota Sampling?
John Moffat says
September 5, 2016 at 2:48 pm
With stratified, the sample within each group is chosen at random. With quota sampling, they are not chosen at random. (See the examples on page 12 of the free lecture notes)
September 6, 2016 at 11:04 am
Got it.. Thanks
September 6, 2016 at 12:25 pm
You are welcome 🙂
June 2, 2016 at 2:47 pm
I just wanted to ask that can we use these lectures for exam attempt in September. And is it possible to study for F1,F2,F3 in three months as thats the only time i have.
June 2, 2016 at 5:52 pm
Yes you can use these lectures – the syllabus is not changing.
You should be able to study for all three exams, but it obviously depends on how much time you have available for studying each day (because of whatever other commitments you have).
June 3, 2016 at 1:57 pm
Thank you for answering. Well i usually have about 3 to 5 hours a day for studying as i also go To a university to Study the same subjects but they are gonna finish these three subjects in November but i want to take the exams in September
June 3, 2016 at 4:31 pm
You should be able to manage all three papers 🙂

Hi why can’t i view the lectures videos? is there any problem with the site ?
June 21, 2016 at 4:40 pm
The lectures are all working fine – the problem must be at your end.
May 4, 2016 at 11:34 am
Thanks for the amazing lecture it was really help full
I need to download this lecture
How can i download this video?
May 4, 2016 at 11:36 am
Lectures can only be watched online.
It is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.
March 7, 2016 at 8:45 am
In this chapter after 29 mins the lecturer asked to turn page 7 for the questions, but we can’t see any questions on page 7.
Could you please let us know, which chapter page number or which unit her refer for the questions
March 7, 2016 at 8:53 am
The tests have been removed from the lecture notes (and I must cut out that bit from the lecture).
Instead there are free online practice tests for each chapter which you can find linked from the main Paper F2 page of the website.

“Every element of one sub-section of the population is selected.” This is an example of ‘Stratified’ sampling, right? Or, is this an example of ‘Cluster’ sampling?

Firstly, I would like to say thanks for your useful lecture.
In my opinion, stratified sampling is same as quota sampling as both of them require knowledge of the proportion of the population, and with stratified sampling we also need a specific sample to examine (say 200 people) and now it is same as quota sampling (question in the sample of 200 with 60% women and 40% men).
I also have another question about systematic. I think systematic is also impossible as random sampling as we are almost unable to mark number to all items to know which of them is 8th and which are every 10th (unless they are already numbered).
Sorry if I miss some things in the lecture that are related to my questions as I cannot hear what the teacher said clearly. Thanks again !
October 5, 2015 at 10:41 am
Stratified and quota are similar, but not the same.
With stratified having decided how many to select you select at random from each group.
With quota you ask (in the example in the notes) the first 120 women and then no more women – they are not selected at random.
Systematic sampling is not random. The only truly random sampling is where every item has an equal chance of being selected..
October 5, 2015 at 3:10 pm
Thanks for your kind reply!
August 1, 2015 at 9:18 am
I sat two paper FFM and FAU but couldn’t pass FAU while i thought i did well.
Help me to know the strategy to pass FAU as i plan december 15
April 1, 2015 at 3:23 pm
Thank you very much for the lessons very helpful.
I am still not quite clear the difference between Stratified and Multistage sampling, as in both you need to divide or split in group. However, it looks to me that if the question mention the word “proportion” or “percentage” it will be definitely Stratified. Am I correct?
Thank you in advance for your help.
June 9, 2015 at 1:00 am
As the professor said in the lesson that Stratified sampling focuses on category while Multistage sampling focuses more on groups. e.g. Man or Woman(it’s a category); a big group divided into small groups (it’s not specifically concerning about men or women, they can both in those groups)
and..yes, “proportion” and “percentage” can be a distinction between these two sampling methods.

it is really helpful. i m gonna sit for the exam on 17th.last time i could not pass as i only read the study book n tried the practice kit may b.only yesterday i found ur opentution website.n now i m able to understand many things which i did assume first time.i m happy to have this lectures. is there any suggestion for me to pass in the exam as i hv very little time.
February 10, 2015 at 8:38 pm

February 10, 2015 at 9:39 pm
hv u passed the exam already?
January 19, 2015 at 11:47 am
Can we use these lectures for June 15 exams
January 19, 2015 at 11:54 am
Yes – the syllabus has not changed.
November 18, 2014 at 4:11 pm
Thank you for the material. I do have a question: i have kaplan f2 book, it only has 20 chapters (2 of which is exam papers and question), is it ok? Thanks again
November 18, 2014 at 4:58 pm
If it is Kaplan then certainly it is OK 🙂
But most important is the Exam Kit. If you watch and understand our free lectures then you do not need the Study Text so much.
However what you do need is lots of practice – the Exam Kit contains lots of exam-standard questions to practice on.
August 25, 2014 at 4:48 pm
I have a same question as person below me. The questions on page 7 of the lecture notes I have and the questions mentioned on the video don’t match.
August 25, 2014 at 4:53 pm
I changed the questions a little because one of them certainly was not a good question.
However, I am not going to re-record the lecture just for that 🙂
August 25, 2014 at 5:52 pm
hehe I was bit confused. Thanks! (Love your lecture btw)
February 2, 2016 at 12:49 am
May I ask which one was not a good question, sir?
February 2, 2016 at 12:51 am
If you don’t mind, that is.. 🙂
June 11, 2014 at 10:50 pm
Are the test questions in the video around 30:23 the same as the ones in the course notes or different? Are they there or am I looking in the wrong place. The questions on page 7(mentioned in the lecture) are not the same as the ones in the notes.
February 18, 2014 at 8:50 pm
Is there any way to increase the speed of the videos? If not it would be a great feature to add that way people can watch at what they feel is a comfortable speed.
January 15, 2014 at 5:07 am
hello. Is this information up to date and can be useful for Jan exams?
January 15, 2014 at 10:31 am
Yes – the information on here is always kept uptodate and is OK for the 2014 exams.
January 3, 2014 at 5:14 am
if you make the lectures downloadable then it will help a lot.
hope you do it.
January 3, 2014 at 5:48 am
The only way that we can keep this website free of charge is by not making the lectures downloadable.
December 24, 2013 at 8:24 pm
will it be possible to watch this in mobile ?
December 24, 2013 at 8:50 pm
Depends what phone you have 🙂
Try looking at the support page if it is not working on yours.

Thx John, working- but taking time to load. It would be appreciated if any option to download?

December 24, 2013 at 6:06 am
You can download the Course Notes, but videos can only be watched online. It is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.
December 17, 2013 at 1:05 pm
Just a quick message to say thank you. I passed F2 by CBE yesterday (82%) by studying from your lectures and course notes.
Thanks a lot
December 17, 2013 at 1:08 pm
That’s great – congratulations 🙂
December 24, 2013 at 8:22 pm
what criteria used for study F2? Thanks for your note
abhinandh dileep says
November 10, 2013 at 4:33 pm
i guess the answer for question 1 of test is ‘D’ not ‘C’ as said in the lecture…
November 10, 2013 at 7:53 pm
I must admit that this is really a silly question (and I will remove it from the notes).
There are arguments regarding all of the choices – I will not go into them because it will only cause confusion and waste your time.

Hi, does anyone know how to watch these lectures on an android tablet?
August 12, 2013 at 2:42 pm
You can find the solution on the support page – the link is just below the lecture on this page.
August 21, 2013 at 4:34 pm
November 10, 2013 at 4:29 pm
November 11, 2013 at 12:07 am
Care to share abhinandh?
In order to watch lectures on an android tablet, you must have a browser with flash player in it. Intially I found that video lectures don’t work with Google chrome. Then I found a browser named ‘photon browser’ in google playstore which has flash player installed in it. Using this browser you will surely be able to watch video lectures in android tablets. If any further issues about this problem pls dont hesitate to text in below. 😉
November 12, 2013 at 11:55 am
To watch video lectures on an android tablet, you need to have a browser with flash player. Initially I found that video lectures don’t work in google chrome. Then I installed a browser named ‘photon browser’ from google playstore which has flash player support. Now I am able to watch video lectures in my tablet. So, simply install ‘photon browser’ from playstore and go to the video lecture you want to watch and click play, then the video should play. If any further issues about this problem pls dont hesitate to leave a comment below
November 12, 2013 at 3:27 pm
install ‘photon browser’ from google play. and try watching a video lecture through that browser. it will work. 🙂
November 12, 2013 at 11:59 am
Now I have a problem.I have replied you twice but the page doesn’t show my replies… 😀
July 12, 2013 at 4:01 am
How can i download
July 12, 2013 at 6:24 am

June 29, 2013 at 11:33 am
still cant understand how a census is primary and not secondary!
June 29, 2013 at 12:20 pm
Primary or secondary depends on why the data was collected (not who is using it).
So, with the census various information is published. For example, it might give the proportions of the population within different age groups. Because the data was collected specifically to give this information (by there being a question on the census form) it is primary.
Secondary is when the data was collected for some other reason and then used for a different reason.
October 4, 2015 at 5:19 am
So, there is nothing related to internal and external source of data. I think this point makes the question 1 confusing to us. Also thank you for your lecture!
August 2, 2013 at 3:06 pm
Primary data in simple terms is unused or processed data
whereas secondary data been data already used for a different purpose which you are not going to rely on for on to perform a task
May 25, 2013 at 3:54 pm
Cannot see the video?why?
May 14, 2013 at 9:19 pm
all of my lectures are showing half way and then they are cutting off…. Its like that’s the end around 20 minutes
May 14, 2013 at 9:55 pm
try and restart where the lecture stopped
May 15, 2013 at 1:30 am
May 13, 2013 at 11:36 pm
Thank you opentuition
is this lecture valid for 2013 exams?
May 15, 2013 at 5:55 am
Of course they are. All of our lectures are valid for the 2013 exams.
May 19, 2013 at 9:18 pm
Okey good, i will rely on them in my acca journey
March 4, 2013 at 9:38 am
I choose D for the first question of the test chapter 2. I think the answer is wrong.
March 4, 2013 at 12:59 pm
No – the answer is C.
The question is a little silly to be honest, but the reason is that (i) and (iii) are calculated using data that was collected for another purpose.
(ii) and (iv) we are using data that exists specifically for a purpose.
February 6, 2013 at 6:24 pm
This Lecture is realy understandable…..wow……wish i have him for Fau…….thank u …..
February 1, 2013 at 10:52 am

Very good notes and very good explanation from the lecturer.Thanks Opentuition.
September 9, 2012 at 3:44 am
this gave me a hope to get throug with this ACCA type thing lls thanks opentution.
September 3, 2012 at 6:56 pm
sorry i meant to ask is systematic a random sample?
September 9, 2012 at 3:42 am
@desie86, i think yes it is cause u r doing random sampling then taking like every 10th item & so on .
September 17, 2012 at 7:47 pm
@mursaleen25, It’s not always. If you have only 50 customers and you invoice them all once per month, you’re only going to be looking at the same 5 customer accounts in your sample. That’s hardly random. The only thing truly random about systematic sampling is the random start point – ie the first item selected from the population
September 3, 2012 at 5:25 pm
is strategic a random sample?

August 1, 2012 at 11:52 am
Please look this chapter up in your study text for more details 🙂
