I just have a question in relation to the AAA exam. Basically I just would like to know whether reading the entire BPP Workbook and essential reading chapters is highly recommended, or instead practicing the Revision Kit plus watching and reading the lectures from OT can be considered sufficient to pass this demanding exam.
Thanks for your assistance.March 25, 2023 at 7:51 am #681768
Yes it can be considered sufficient to use our ALL our resources in lieu of a text (I.e.
notes, lectures, end-of-chapter quizzes) but you must include ACCA’s essential reading like the technical articles which I “flag” with a sticky post at the top of the AAA forum.
You must work through ALL the CBE questions in the practice platform, including sitting at least one as a mock exam. For further question practice you need a current edition revision kit.
Some students like to have a text as well for reference but there are a lot of free resources available as reference e.g. all the examinable docs including the Codes and Handbook of ISAa are freely available.March 25, 2023 at 12:53 pm #681800
Thanks a lot for your prompt reply, Kim.March 25, 2023 at 1:54 pm #681801
You’re very welcome! And welcome to my AAA forum!March 28, 2023 at 7:27 pm #681958
Hi Kim, I just have a question which may sound a bit silly.
Do you think that achieving a pass in AAA is possible if for example I have no audit experience at the moment? In my case I work in a corporate tax division consulting of a big 4.
Thanks a lot for your valuable advice. I really appreciate it.March 29, 2023 at 8:11 am #681979
Certainly I know of students who have passed with no practical experience the options that they have taken even if their not the best options for them according to ACCA’s guidance https://www.accaglobal.com/gb/en/student/sa/study-skills/options-choices.html
But AAA is not just about “doing” an assurance assignment – if you look at the syllabus – which I strongly recommend ….
… you’ll see that there are topics like “ethics”, “client engagement” and “quality” which will be relevant to anyone working in a firm even if your clients are for tax services rather than audit and assurance.
