due to conflicts between my university exam and ACCA i wasn’t able to prepare for F5 until today .
so I am hoping to get guidance on how to complete this portion through self study , in such short time.
I am willing to Hard Work and give my best try.

17 days is not long, but whether or not you can complete the studies depends on how much time you are able to study each day, and how easy or difficult you find the paper.
However do remember two things:
First, it is vital to practice as many exam-standard questions as possible after you have finished the studying (do download our free Study Guide which suggests which questions to attempts after each chapter of our Lecture Notes)
Secondly, only 50% of the exam involves calculations. The other 50% is testing that you understand what is happening (and have not simply learned rules), so while you are studying do make sure you really understand each topic.November 24, 2015 at 7:47 am #284836

17 days is not much, but anything is possible. Depends upon time available and work commitments etc.December 5, 2015 at 4:32 pm #287895
thank you 🙂
i am optimistic
and they say failure is the stepping stone 😀January 18, 2016 at 6:39 pm #295952
i got 47 marks and of course failed but kinda happy that i got this with just 17 days starting from scratch.
thanks to John sir and opentution.com team for making me able to cover such vast portion in short time , even though i failed i kind of feel good for scoring this (may be strange)
so please guide me on following matters
1.shall give it for a reevaluation i mean i expected around 45-55 marks so is it worth to give a try or is it just a waste of money and time ?
2.or else i am planing to sit march exam and is it wise to take one more subject with f5 (f7 in my mind) and please do give some amazing tips on RE SITS
sorry for troubling
