Good evening. Please assist. There seems to be no video lecture on forecasting and there are lots of questions on that chapter in the exam practice question kit. Does it mean forecasting isn’t such a tested area?

Of course there are lectures!!!
Forecasting is the high-low method, correlation and regression, and time series analysis. All three are covered in chapters 19 and 20 for the free lecture notes, and the lectures that go with them.

April 6, 2017 at 7:27 am
Thank you for the comment.
However the lectures can only be viewed online – they are not downloadable. It is the only way that we can keep this website free of charge.

Fantastic lectures. thank you. you mentioned we wont have to reproduce a cash budget in the exam. does that also go for the budget income statement, balance sheet etc? theyre in the book and im just trying to optimise my study time now.
December 9, 2016 at 6:10 am
You cannot be expected to produce an entire cash budget but you are expected to know what they are, and you could be asked to calculate extracts from them.
April 1, 2016 at 5:21 pm
Hi where i can find the exact video about cash budget?
April 1, 2016 at 6:16 pm
You can’t – there is no need for a video on it.
March 22, 2016 at 12:43 pm
Is this any different from the CBE?

Hi, in kaplan text book there are lot of things compare to opentution notes. In budgeting there is cash budget and cash flow forecast but i don’t see in opentution notes. So will it be asked in final exam or not. Secondly there are different types of index numbers in kaplan text and only two types in opentution. So whom should we trust?
September 7, 2015 at 8:24 am
We make it very clear that our lecture notes are not a Study Text – they are notes to accompany the lectures. In the lectures we explain and expand on the notes. Our lectures are what we teach on a course and cover everything you need to be able to pass F2 well. They form a complete course and if you are watching all of them in order then you do not need a Study Text. What you do need is an Exam Kit because they have lots of questions to practice on, and practice is vital.
The lectures do explain what cash budgets are – in the exam you are expected to have heard of them but you are not expected to be able to produce one. That is why we do not waste time producing one in the lectures!

Thanks sir A great work by opentution. Are the lecture on the site enough to pass the paper ?
August 30, 2015 at 9:19 am
Yes – provided that you use them with the free lecture notes, and that you also attempt our online mock exam (the questions are selected at random from a bank of questions, so every time you attempt it you are likely to get different questions). It would be good to buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers because they contain lots of exam-standard questions to practice, and practice is vital.
December 10, 2014 at 3:37 pm
sir plz explain how to ansr of this qs. and this Qs is of which topic.
ABC co has a manufacturing capacity of 10000 units. the flexed producion cost budget of the company is as follows.
capacity 60% 100%
total production cost $ 11280 $ 15120
December 10, 2014 at 7:12 pm
This is a question on high-low. You can find the lecture on this in ‘quantitative techniques for budgeting’. If you have any problem with it then ask in the F2 Ask the Tutor Forums.
February 16, 2015 at 8:55 pm
is it v.cost =5760 & F.cost =5520..?
February 17, 2015 at 8:17 am
No – the fixed cost is $5520, but the variable cost is $0.96 per unit
February 17, 2015 at 8:41 am
Yeah per unit it’s 0.96 but I calculated the total variable cost.. Thank you.

July 1, 2014 at 1:56 pm
where is chapter forecasting ? its in my bpp book :s
July 1, 2014 at 2:07 pm
We don’t design our lecture notes round the BPP book – we design them round the syllabus 🙂
The examiner calls it ‘statistical techniques’ in the syllabus, and they are all covered in Chapters 17, 18 and 19 of our Course Notes.
April 16, 2014 at 9:33 pm
Suppose the examiner only states two of the out of the four listed as one of the answer and then all the above… Which one would be best the choose?
April 9, 2014 at 8:54 pm
Can i gets some Key Exam point to remember and pitfall to avoid when preparing a budget
April 10, 2014 at 9:43 am
Everything in the lecture and the notes is important for the exam.
October 22, 2013 at 10:12 pm
Greeting Teacher. please tell me the most important chapters to read as i dont have much time to go through whole book. Thanks
October 23, 2013 at 6:03 am
I am afraid that you will have to go through the whole book! There will be 50 questions in the exam and they will cover the whole syllabus.
October 24, 2013 at 12:31 am
if i go through the online notes thoroughly instead of text book?
October 24, 2013 at 5:57 am
That’s fine, provided that you get a revision/exam kit from one of the approved publishers and practice all the questions.
October 24, 2013 at 1:57 pm
Thanks a million. Open Tuition is above and beyond everything. I passed my FAB scoring 78% and FFA 70%. i have my FMA cbe in two days. Fingers crossed.
October 29, 2013 at 11:24 am

Please help me with Production budgeting. If budgeted sales (aka Sales requirements derived from market demand) equals 4000 units; Opening Inventories equal 950; Closing inventories equal 1000. Why is the Production requirement = Sales requirement + Increase in finished goods inventory? (Calculating to 4050 = 4000 + 50 where 4050 is the Production requirement) I don’t understand how production requirement relates to opne and closing inventories
March 22, 2014 at 5:39 am
But where do you think that the inventories come from? We have to produce them. If we did not keep inventories then we would need to produce 4000. Here we do keep inventory and we want to increase it by 50 and so we need to produce an additional 50.
March 22, 2014 at 7:22 am
I understand that we need to produce them. I don’t understand why we use closing and opening inventories’ difference as the amount we want to increase/decrease it with. Why not use a % of previous sales for example?
March 22, 2014 at 8:57 am
There are no rules as to how a company decides on the level of inventory that it wants – there are many factors that they might consider. They might look at past demand, although more sensibly they would look at expected future demand. In exams you cannot be expected to decide yourself – you will be told how they intend to change the inventory and you follow the instructions.
