Whilst studying for my final ACCA exam I discovered Open Tuition. I was astounded that such a comprehensive resource was being offered for free - free lecture notes, easy to access, well taught, understandable video lectures for all syllabus areas, free tutor support, as well as an online community of fellow students to discuss problems and share successes, frustrations (and whisper it the occasional failure) with. Did I mention this is all for free??
The video lectures with worked examples gave me the belief to approach this exam with something approaching confidence, whereas at past ACCA exams my approach was more with dread.
I wish I had found them sooner, and will of course be recommending them to everyone I can (especially to colleagues at work).
They deserve the award for being truly innovative and for shaking up the BPP / Kaplan Accounting Studies dominance.
Through his video lectures for P2 Mike Little has actually given me confidence in areas of accounting I would previously have always avoided (eg pensions, cash flow). His style is such that anything seems achievable. He adds humour to what would otherwise be the driest of topics. I have been in lectures before where a wrong answer has made me feel very small indeed, but Mike’s “or more correctly?” approach to being given the wrong answer is to me just perfect.
You know that he genuinely cares about the progress of the students (both in the room, and those viewing online).
During my studies of P2 for Dec exam I have laughed at the screen, enjoyed answering his questions out loud, occasionally shouted at the monitor (in frustration at my own shortcomings!) but above all else feel that even after a very hard exam, I was as prepared for it as I could possibly be thanks to Mike.
Thank you Sir, it’s been a pleasure (never thought I’d say that about P2!). And if the worst happens in February I know where I will be coming straight back to.

When one hears that something is free, one is always skeptical as to the possible content and standard to be derived. Open Tuition is the only “FREE” study resource available, especially for us here in the economically challenged Caribbean region. Despite being free, I can state categorically, without reservation that the standard and content of the resource is par excellence, and I would, and have without fear or hesitation recommended the site to others.
The Open Tuition platform can be classified as a “One Stop Shop” for ACCA resources.

A constant reminder of the examination date on the site, once issued by ACCA
The Open Tuition website facilitates networking with other members across the globe; in addition it also provides easy access to other social websites. The site is user friendly and there was never a time, that the site was down or you encountered any disruption while on the platform. It is always up and running, whereas there are other paying resource providers’ sites, that forever has disruption and issues to their site. This only shows the resolve and tenacity of the Open Tuition providers in the maintenance of their website.
Open Tuition providers; to you I say a big thank you for a JOB WELL DONE.
Mike Little has this uncanny and interesting way of getting you to understand and remember the various concepts.
