I have just started FA1 few months ago. I realized most of my friends just finished FA1 in 1 month but my tutor and I have used more than 1 month…
Anyone has studied by themselves and just use Opentuition notes and practices to pass the test? If you did so, do you buy any books such as Kaplan or BPP?
Please recommend some books to me too. Thank you so much.February 17, 2017 at 4:49 pm
For FA1, i used Kaplan. I’d refer you the same. But, it does not matter which text book you’re using. You can use Beckers as well. All of the ‘Approved Content Providers’ have what it takes to pass the paper.
As for Revision Kits, 1 is enough, but for a better preparation, use 2. It would provide you with more questions & you’ll be able to get a grip on how the examiner tests the students.
As for Time, it does take more than 1 month, in fact much more if you’re either working full time, or have no accounting background. I had no accounting background & had to take proper classes despite working full time. A revision of 1.5 months was enough for me to pass.February 20, 2017 at 2:06 am
@secondstar Thank you so much for your reply. Did you use BPP books before? Most of my friends recommend BPP instead of Kaplan.February 20, 2017 at 6:59 am
I used Kaplan for FA1 and FA2. Will use it for F3 as well.
For MA1, MA2 i have used BPP. Currently preparing for F2 with BPP.
I have not decided what to use for F1. My tutor recommended BPP, but i’ll see whats better when i’ll start preparations.
It doesn’t matter which study material you’re using, use what you understand easily. I have passed FA1,FA2,MA1 & MA2 with those study materials.February 20, 2017 at 8:58 am

You’re welcome.. Do not forget to ask your queries in this forum.March 3, 2017 at 5:47 am
i’ve been studying FA1 since the start of Jan/2017. i am doing it through acca-x online courses which are free and i really think that they are amazing and exactly designed for the beginners to pass the exam.
i am going to appear in the exam in last week of march. My exam was delayed due to registration problems otherwise it just takes 5 weeks to complete the course and give exam.March 26, 2017 at 8:34 am

Hello I’m new to the ACCA FIA FA1 and registered with open tuition.
Can you give advice on how to pass exams. I use the open tuition notes to study with ,but is that enough. Is the open tuition notes okay or do I need the text books from some other provider?June 14, 2017 at 3:12 pm
You don’t need other textbooks, but you do need a book of questions to practise eg from BPP or Kaplan.June 14, 2017 at 3:12 pm
@ahenry25 You can also read the notes given by ACCA-X. The courses are free for Foundation & Intermediate level and it has practices and tests too. I bought BPP practice and revision kit for myself because I need more practices. Last week I just finished my exam (FA1 & MA1) and got 70%+ so I think other than these resources your hard work is needed too 🙂
