Dear Mr. Mike,
1st of all, appreciated your voluntary efforts for this education mode, as a student who gained a lot of advantages……..
I expect you kind advice for P2……..
I’m a member of CMA-Sri Lanka & now a full time student and preparing for P1,P2 & P3. further, I have already covered all the syllabus areas of P1 & P3 with summarized notes and pendings are past papers only………(so need relatively a little time)
burning issue is P2,
I have covered only Consolidation, IAS -16, 20, 23, 36 only. Only 2 weeks are remaining & as a full time student, I can only deploy around 100 hours for P2… I can complete your valuable notes through your clever lectures ……..but, can’t complete all the things in study text (BPP) with this limited time………..
will your “notes-coverings” be enough for me to pass the exam ? and what is your opinion…..
Kindly advice me, how I should prepare for P2…….
Thanks in advance …

With so little time left I think I would be inclined now to read through the questions type 2 and 3 together with the answers. Do that from the revision kit / exam kit as many times as you can force yourself to do it. See how many points are made in an answer for, say, a 6 mark part question.
That’s what you’re aiming for – 6 marks? 6 separate markable points – all the way through the written parts of the exam. That’s the area where students (I believe) let themselves down – by not making enough points in their answers

Where is the example 1 on page 59? Its not at the end of the previous recording

Are we talking about the borrowing cost question? Is there a problem with the printed answer on page 241?

Hi, is there any good method to memorise the standards? I feel I forget quickly right after the reading.thx …
June 2, 2015 at 11:14 am
You don’t need to remember the standards. What you DO need to do is lots of practice from past exam questions 2 and all the mini exercises at the end of the free course notes.
It’s how the standards are applied that is more important than trying to remember them

Do I need to refer the standards while answering the questions? Or just explain it and that’s enough? As I read some of the past paper answer, it will say like:
“According to IAS 37, Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets, a constructive obligation to restructure arises
only when an entity:
(a) Has a detailed formal restructuring plan identifying at least:
(i) the business activities, or part of the business activities, concerned;
It is so detailed and exactly copied from the script. Do I need to answer like this?

It’s tempting to lie to you here and get you totally wound up! But, so close to the exam, that would be grossly unfair!
Many, many times on this site is the message “There are NO marks available for quoting IAS / IFRS / ISA numbers and / or titles”
The suggested solution does this …… because it can! There’s no time pressure on the author, there’s the availability of the standards open in front of the author, there’s no adrenalin rush and no pressure to do well because promotion at work is dependent upon exam success, and the author can write as much as they want – could even write a book as the answer if they felt up to it
No, it is NOT necessary to remember standard titles nor numbers – don’t even think about trying. It’s a waste of time and effort

What happened to Example 1 on Page 59?
April 5, 2015 at 6:06 pm
Alex, is it maybe at the end of the previous recording?
July 11, 2015 at 4:24 pm
No it isnt actually.
But the answer is written out and printed on page 241!

Please explain why reversal of impairment on goodwill is treated differently. I did not understand that part and why it’s new and internally generated. I know there are two types of goodwill….one is purchase (through acquisition of a business) and the other is like your brands and mastheads (created within the business)
May 29, 2014 at 1:48 pm
Exactly, and if I am not mistaken, internally generated goodwill can never be capitalized. This is in relation with the prudence principle. Also, measurement would be very difficult for an internally generated goodwill. For externally purchased goodwill, we at least know we spent a bunch of money on it, so this leads to the measured goodwill.
The other treatment (recognizing internally generated GW) would make big bath accounting too easy and financial statements too unreliable.
