Use the ACCA Learning Community to link up with fellow students around the world studying the same exam as you – get tips, join discussions and share ideas and advice. You can also access live Q&A sessions and presentations. Download the Student Planner App – a tool that helps you map your journey to ACCA membership while balancing your work and social life. Spend some time familiarising yourself with the free resources available on the student section of the ACCA website – we will provide you with specific guidance on when and how to use these resources during the relevant stages of study. When drawing up your study plan (see page 5) Be realistic and consider when you are best able to study – maybe early mornings work better for you or perhaps shorter study periods more often. Once you have prepared your plan stick to it! Consider building in an extra study period after every few chapters to review and consolidate your learning. Take a 5 – 10 minute break every hour to help maintain your motivation and concentration. We strongly recommend that you buy an F3 Approved Content Provider Study Text and Question and Answer Bank to ensure exam success.
