dear p2 tutor
I have completed all the section A questions (im following Kaplan kit) and now its about IAS! I want help how to study for them. I have notes from my institute and workings I’v done but it doesn’t seem very clear, I tried ias 19 but found it tooo lengthy and confusing. Im putting numbering my questions here:
1)- I have handouts where the entire IAS is printed and there’s nothing about application, but shall I do that first before learning how to apply it. I have heard from friends that I wont understand anything if I dont know the IAS and for that I have to read out the very long and descriptive IAS handouts! Is there an easy way out.. Are the OT notes a solution for this?
2) how important are f7 IASes here. Are their any most important or favorite IASs of the examiner?
3) Is it important to know how the IASes are calculated or just getting the concept in mind and writing in own words OK?
Please suggest me a solid plan for study in these last days I would really be thankful sir!!

CONCEPT!!!!! And start to work through the past exam questions. However, don’t get depressed by the BPP ( nor Kaplan ) suggested solutions. They are ALWAYS too full and too detailed – way beyond what a student would be expected to write in the time availableNovember 25, 2010 at 9:29 pm
Dear tutor in ur lecture notes (video lectures) i DONT see a discussion about IAS 32 or 39 financial instruments and I suppose its an important one..are the text notes OK for it??

Read also your college lecture notes – or, better still, a study text from BPP or KaplanNovember 29, 2010 at 11:26 pm
Is there a chance/pattern that IASes asked last time will probably be left out this time? can this help in preparation with the remaining time left:(November 30, 2010 at 3:58 pm
It CAN help – but you’re following a dangerous path! If I were an examiner, I would be saying to myself “Tuition providers around the World are saying “It came up last time, so it won’t be asked this time”. What a shock to everyone’s system if I were to repeat in consecutive exams a question on the same topic”
It’s not likely – on a scale of 1 to 10, I’d put it down near the lower end. But you never can tell!
