I passed P1 in my first attempt. The credit goes to the excellent teacher Mr John. His teaching is really great. I would like to give many thanks to him for this excellent service for free.
Can I ask to the opentution administration where are the previous video lectures upto chapter 7 of P4?
The video lectures start I can see starting from chapter 7.
Please let me know if it is possible to watch other videos as I am eagerly dependent on from Johns lectures from the beginning.

It is Mike who teaches P1 – not me 🙂
There are no lectures for the first seven chapters – they are for you to read yourself and are a combination of background reading and revision of earlier papers.

Oh Sorry, I mistakenly wrote John rather I actually meant Mike.
Thanks to let me know about the videos John.

Oh dear Mr.John, I missed you so much since F9 🙂
So nice to have so great teachers during life! You inspire, make hard things understandable, and prepare people for life of finance. 🙂
Thank you for sharing knowledge.

i am currently using CASIO Scientific calculator fx 100MS. The answers for all the examples are as per your calculation shown in the lecture but for example 4 to calculate average rate of growth i cannot get the right answer as i think i am making mistake in typing it in calculator . So can you pls tell how to input it into the calculator.
A very helpful lecture 🙂

October 13, 2015 at 6:40 am

October 27, 2015 at 11:43 am
Hello, I am in China too. try Webfreer…that’s what I use or Psiphon vpn on any device in case web freer stops working. hope it helps

I had your lecture. . It was really good, easy to understand…
It cleared all my questions regarding this topic specially for growth rate. .
My next topic is mergers and acquisition, but I think they aren’t available at your topic list.
August 28, 2015 at 4:03 pm
Thank you 🙂
It is true that there is no lecture on mergers and acquisitions – mainly because there is nothing technical involved that is not already covered in the other lectures. It is more a question of approach.
If you go to ‘Revision Kit Live’ from the main P4 page you will find some lectures working through a few question 1’s from past exams which will help you.

How can I get revision kit live?
September 23, 2015 at 10:00 am
My fault – its not called Revision Kit Live for P4 🙂
Here is the link:

Hello Mr John Moffat, this is the first time I will be using your P4 notes and the lectures. I noticed that there are Chapters 7-19 but not others after 19. Where can I find them?
Also, are these lectures ok to use for sitting in Dec15? Do you advise to buy text book or the downloaded notes are sufficient?
August 4, 2015 at 4:42 pm
The lecture notes have chapters 1 to 29.
There are lectures on chapters 7 to 24.
The reason that there are no lectures on the other chapters in the lecture notes is because we do not lecture them on our tuition courses – they are for you to read. There are no calculations involved and are a combination of revision of basic P3 and F9, and are more background reading. There would be no point in simply reading out these chapters in lectures 🙂 If anything in them puzzles you then you should ask in the Ask the Tutor Forum.
The lectures are OK for December 2015 – we never leave out-of-date lectures on this website – they are reviewed after every exam.
You don’t really need a text book (although the more reading you do the better) but it is vital that you have a current edition of a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved providers. The nature of P4 makes question practice even more vital that for the earlier exams.
August 5, 2015 at 12:38 pm
Thank you for your advise. However, I cannot see lectures from chapters 20-24 on the website.
August 5, 2015 at 12:48 pm
Sorry – I had not realised that the lecture numbers have gone wrong. I will have them corrected.
First, the lectures headed Chapter 17 in fact cover chapters 18 and 19.
Also, the lectures headed Chapter 18 in fact cover chapters 20 and 21.
(I will have the headings corrected).
There are no lectures for chapters 21 onwards. The only one of those that does have calculations is chapter 24, but this is our revision of F9 (and if you need then you can find a lecture in the F9 section).
Finally, there are no lectures on Chapters 15 to 17 of the lecture notes.
Mergers and acquisitions are important, but the techniques involved are all covered in other chapters – there are no extra techniques. So for this, instead of repeating earlier chapters in the lectures, I have uploaded (under “Revision Kit Live”) lectures working through several recent exam question 1’s. They are worth watching anyway because they go through the way to approach the questions.

please do i have to write and pass p2 before i will be allowed to write p4?
June 30, 2015 at 11:38 am
No – you can now take all of the P level papers in any order.
In future please ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum and not as a comment on a lecture.

Where are chapters 1-6.
I see that the video lectures start from ch7, please guide me where to get the missing chapters
Thanks and regards
May 9, 2015 at 12:35 pm
There are no lectures for the first six chapters, and there never will be.
The reason is that they contain no calculations – they are a combination of background reading and revision of P3.
You should read them yourself. There would be no point in having lectures that could not do much more than read the notes to you. We do not lecture them on our courses.

Please assist me, how can i download lecture videos or audio?
April 8, 2015 at 8:31 am
Lectures cannot be downloaded – they can only be watched online.
It is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.

Hi John I failed P4 with 49% at the last sitting after studying with Kaplan classroom courses in Leeds. As I was late handing in my assessment with them my guaranteed pass would not be withheld and I would have had to have paid 1500 again to go back to the classroom. Kaplan were not interested unless I paid again.
I would like to say that your lectures are concise, very well presented and clear. I am sure with your help I will pass in June.
Thank you so much for this great facility you provide.
March 24, 2015 at 3:21 am
this is my second attempt for p4 I really hope I will pass this time
March 5, 2015 at 4:59 pm
Hi John…im currently listening to the P4 lectures. I can hear your voice very clearly, but I cant see what you are explaining,,,no pictures(blank)…please what can I do,,thanks
March 6, 2015 at 8:48 am
I don’t actually start writing anything until 1 minute 49 secs into the lecture.
If you still see nothing after that time then go to the technical support page (the link is above) for help.
March 6, 2015 at 6:46 pm
Thanks Joh,. its now working
February 16, 2015 at 5:05 am
couldnt download this videos why?
February 16, 2015 at 9:20 am
Because lectures can only be watched online – they are not downloadable!
(The Lecture Notes that are needed while you watch the lectures can be downloaded.)
February 12, 2015 at 4:55 pm
Hi Mr John
A little late but I would like to say thank you! I passed P4 on first attempt at 60% and now I am qualified. You have been by far the best teacher I have ever had, you got me through F2, F3, F5, F9 and now P4. Many thanks for your efforts and for the time you have spent answering my lengthy questions, I wouldn’t have been able to pass a lot of these papers if it wasn’t for you.
Keep up the great work you are doing and I will stay around! 🙂
February 12, 2015 at 8:51 pm
Thank you, and many congratulations 🙂

Example 4 dividends and market value grow at the same rate as calculated ie. 6.75%. Is this an assumption or?
February 12, 2015 at 10:48 am
In theory the market value will be expected to grow at the same rate as dividends (because the market value is determined by expectation of future dividends).
