Good day sir,
I am grateful for your services. God bless.
I was performing the quiz for Ch2, and came across Quantitative and Qualitative data question. I dont think this was covered in your notes or lecture , or have I missed it ? Or is it you are just applying common sense questions ?
Im using safari browser from Iphone. I find that after completing the quiz in Ch2, the finish button does not function. Just a feedback.
Moving on, In the chapter (I think it was 3 or 4) where you calculated variable cost and the fixed cost within the video lecture, I did not find topics and questions such as the standard deviation and other such exercises being explained and solved, which I find in my local institute text book notes of the same chapter. The reason you have omitted all this – is it because you believe these questions won’t appear in the exams, or because you do not cover all the materials in your free course ? (Note: I just watched your lectures upto finding out variable and fixed costs so far and have only covered the first two chapters in terms of your published notes)
Lastly, do you only provide a fixed 5 questions per chapter Quiz ? Or there are more of them ? Because I tried repeating the quiz, but the same questions just show up.
To conclude, I would like to announce, I am grateful for your lectures – you explain complicated things and make them appear so logical and simple – it just sinks in ! Better than most paid tutors definitely. I have shared your platform with as many as I could within whatsapp, so everyone else could benefit as well.

I would like to add another note.
After I downloaded the pg 9-10 within Chapter 2, they appear blank. So maybe the Quantitative question from the quiz belonged to those particular pages.

Sorry for the above repetition, some technical glitch.
Also, apologies, I meant pg 9-10 of Chapter 1 missing.

It is true that at the moment the software we use for the quizzes does not work for the finish button.
The standard deviation, normal distribution etc. are covered in chapters 22 and 23 of our free lecture notes and the lectures that go with them. The lectures are a complete free course and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
The quizzes are just meant as a quick check after each chapter. As stated throughout this website you need to buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers – they are full of exam standard questions for practice, and practice is vital to passing the exam.

? Appreciated !

Page 9 is not blank. Read what is written in italics at the bottom of the box !!!!
Page 10 is deliberately blank because each new chapter starts on an even numbered page – just as it would in a book.

Page 9 is not blank – read what is written at the bottom of the box on this page !!!
Page 10 is deliberately blank. New chapters always start on even numbered pages as is standard practice.

Sorry about the first point, the mobile screen made me overlook that tiny sentence at the bottom. Next time I shall be more careful.
As for the second point, that is new knowledge to me, thanks !!!

I have just started with open tuition for ACCA MA exam. I have read the study notes and lecture for chapter 2 but did not come across any information on continuous data… Maybe I am missing something? Or it is mentioned later?
July 20, 2020 at 7:09 am
It is explain in the later chapters on statistics (which is where it becomes relevant). The lectures are a complete free course and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
July 27, 2020 at 10:59 pm
Thank you very much, that’s great!
July 28, 2020 at 8:57 am
You are welcome 🙂

Sir I have a doubt. One of the questions read, “which of the following is true of Stratified sampling?” the correct answer is: knowledge is needed for each item of the population. Why so? i do not understand how this could be the answer.
May 25, 2020 at 10:16 am
The population is split into groups in the way described in my free lectures. To be able to split into groups (and then select at random) you need to know which group each item falls in to.
May 7, 2020 at 7:41 am
Please conduct a lesson for Discrete and continuous data
May 7, 2020 at 9:50 am
There is already a lesson on discretions and continuous data (chapter 22 of our free lecture notes and the free lectures that go with it) !!
The free lectures cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.

In question 4 , Option three – the defination looks like for sampling i.e a group of people or objects investigated insted of whole population option 4 – Sir, you replied to ZhengGong that the continuous can have any value then the range is desided but in question its wrong
Looking for reply
January 28, 2020 at 10:22 pm
60%, good practice while i have 2 questions:
1. Continuous data can take any values? I think Continuous data can take value within their range of definition. 2. About Stratified Sampling, I think you do not need to have knowledge of every item, what you need indeed is the amount of each distinct value in the given population. (related to Question 3)
Look for reply. Thanks a lot for the video and Quiz. There are awesome
January 29, 2020 at 6:49 am
1. It is the other way round – continue data can have any value, and depending on the values we then decide on the ranges.
2. The question does not specify what knowledge is needed – it is true that we need the value, but this itself is knowledge.
Thanks for the comment 🙂
January 29, 2020 at 12:19 pm
Thanks for your reply.
I have a better understanding now.

1 answer good

40% before even reading the notes. i guess after reading them i will understand better
January 16, 2020 at 4:19 pm
I assume you will be watching the free lectures as well? It is pointless to use the notes on their own because they are lecture notes and it is in the lectures that I work through the examples and explain and expand on the notes.
If you are not watching the lectures for any reason then you need to buy a Study Text from one of the ACCA approved publishers and study from there.

Q2 on chapter 2 was tricky – I thought it is answer ‘cluster sampling’
January 16, 2020 at 7:37 am
No – it is systematic sampling. See the explanation on page 11 of our free lecture notes.

It is great to join OT to learn and develop. I would like to thank all the people who contribute to such a wonderful platform.

I’d like to thank John Moffat for the video lectures. They are very helpful and easy to understand. Also the practice questions set the mood for CBEs
December 2, 2019 at 1:14 pm
Thank you for your comment 🙂

4/5. Not bad. ?
November 28, 2019 at 3:06 pm
Not bad 🙂 (But do make sure you have a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers because it is essential to practice lots and lots of questions).

I got 100%. I’m surprised at myself. Thank you

60%. GOOD practice
July 16, 2019 at 2:48 pm
Great 🙂 But do make sure you get a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA Approved Publishers because they are full of exam standard questions and the more questions you practice the better!
May 28, 2019 at 1:09 am
Solid questions. Don’t be disappointed with your marks, just keep working at it. Scored all.
