ACCA f1 Accountant in business notes
ACCA f1 Accountant in business notes: This Study Guide for the F1 Accountant in Business module is designed to help you plan your studies and to provide more detailed interpretation of the syllabus for ACCA’s Certified Accounting Technician exams. It contains both the Syllabus and the Study Sessions for the paper, which you can follow when preparing for the exam.
The ACCA Syllabus outlines the content of the paper and how that content is examined. The Study Sessions take the syllabus and expand it into teaching or study sessions of similar length. These sessions indicate what the examiner expects of candidates for each part of the syllabus, and therefore gives you guidance in the skills you are expected to demonstrate in the exams. The time to complete each session will vary according to your individual capabilities and the time you have available to study. Tuition providers offering face-to-face tuition are recommended to design courses with a minimum of two hours tuition per study session. However, repeated coverage of the material is vital to ensure your understanding and recall of the subject. Be sure to practise past exam questions to consolidate your knowledge and read Student Accountant regularly.
From 26 February 2014 ACCA has introduced an improved student experience for all exams available by CBE. Use the specimen exam available via the link on the right hand side of this page to familiarise yourself with the style and layout of the exam.

Throughout, the study guides assess both knowledge and skills.

The assessment of knowledge is denoted by a superscriptK and the assessment of skills is denoted by the superscriptS.
