There are four steps you should work through.

Step 1

How do you learn? First you need to be aware of your style of learning. The BPP Learning Media Learning to Learn Accountancy book commits a chapter to this self-discovery. What types of intelligence do you display when learning? You might be advised to brush up on certain study skills before launching into this Study Text. BPP Learning Media’s Learning to Learn Accountancy book helps you to identify what intelligences you show more strongly and then details how you can tailor your study process to your preferences. It also includes handy hints on how to develop intelligences you exhibit less strongly, but which might be needed as you study accountancy. Are you a theorist or are you more practical? If you would rather get to grips with a theory before trying to apply it in practice, you should follow the study sequence on page (viii). If the reverse is true (you like to know why you are learning theory before you do so), you might be advised to flick through Study Text chapters and look at examples, case studies and questions (Steps 8, 9 and 10 in the suggested study sequence) before reading through the detailed theory.

Step 2

How much time do you have? Work out the time you have available per week, given the following. • The standard you have set yourself • The time you need to set aside later for work on the Practice & Revision Kit and Passcards • The other exam(s) you are sitting • Very importantly, practical matters such as work, travel, exercise, sleep and social life Hours Note your time available in box A. A viii Introduction

Step 3

Allocate your time

• Take the time you have available per week for this Study Text shown in box A, multiply it by the number of weeks available and insert the result in box B.

• Divide the figure in box B by the number of chapters in this text and insert the result in box C.

Step 4

Implement Set about studying each chapter in the time shown in box C, following the key study steps in the order suggested by your particular learning style. This is your personal Study Plan. You should try and combine it with the study sequence outlined below. You may want to modify the sequence a little (as has been suggested above) to adapt it to your personal style. BPP Learning Media’s Learning to Learn Accountancy gives further guidance on developing a study plan, and deciding where and when to study.
