I ‘ve just started P4 and P5 and will be taking exams in June 2012. I’m using Kaplan in conjunction with LSBF. Does anyone have any ideas on the approach for these papers. I am aware that everyone’s study habits will be different, however i’m open to suggestions. I’m noticing that some videos for P4 are not uploaded. Can anyone tell me when the full package will be available. I’ve looked at DCF techniques and I’m impressed with the video lectures. It was easy to understand and a very good way of revising F9. I intend to go through all your lectures. 2012 is the year of completion.
This is the advice i was given regarding P$ which I also intend to sit. i also say 2012 is the year of completion.
egarding exam preparation tip, i do believe the most important areas of P4 are as follows:
- risk management that is ( exchange rate risk,interest rate risk and share price) and BSOP model one question at least will bound to come from this area in any exam session.
- valuation of companies and investment appraisal including foreign direct investment , dividend policy and cost of capital represent major area of the paper one question at least appear from this area .
- the other question will be from area of either reorganization or restructure company and it has always been the case
- there will be one pure writing question without calculation, this may be on issues like recent development in international financial market, corporate governance, ethics and CSR
very important to practise the past exam papers under strict exam condition to assess pressure, because exam is not about knowing and understanding P4 only but about your output in that 3hours.”
