Alphabetically-organised and condensed notes

Exam day notes should be noteworthy.

The ACA is unique amongst UK accountancy qualifications in that you’re allowed to take your own notes and books into certain ‘open book’ examinations.

Sounds great, right?

While there are certainly many benefits, there are also a few pitfalls you’ll need to avoid too, which is where our Exam Room Notes come in.

They’re specially designed to provide quick access to all the content you require, without causing you to lose track of the most important thing in any exam – time!

Tutor tips on mark allocation

We believe that Mock exams shouldn't mock you.

We’ve all seen the model answers included with the ICAEW Mock exams that make “War and Peace” look like a light read.

To be honest it’s one our biggest frustrations, as we believe it’s completely unfair to provide unrealistic best practice examples that no one could be reasonably expected to emulate within the time-pressured environment of an exam room.

So with this in mind we’ve created our very own Strategic Business Management Mock Exam Pack that will not only give you greater confidence and help your pick up marks, but also doesn’t make a mockery of time limits.

What our
students say

A few kind words from the more than 20,000 satisfied students we have worked with over the years.

I have purchased all of your Advanced Level Exam Room Notes, the Cracking Case book and the Smashing SBM book. Whether I pass or not the first time, the books are phenomenal help and I'd be so much more confused at this point without them.

Anthony M

purchaser of SBM Exam Room Notes

I loved the focus on exam technique and insight into what to expect and how to approach the exam. Definitely boosted my confidence. It was a really impressive session. Really good to hear what the examiners think about the exam and to make connections between SBM and the other ACA papers (similarities and differences).

Abubakar M

SBM on-demand student

Thank you so much for writing these Case Study Mocks (particularly during these unprecedented times). I have used your materials for BPT and all my Advanced Level exams and have always found them incredibly helpful!

Alina B

purchaser of SBM Exam Room Notes

I just wanted to reach out and say thanks for writing such fantastic material - I passed Case Study with a score of 78 due to your materials. It really is in a different league to the provider I was with. You also helped me to pass my SBM retake in November 2016 (again, with a score of 78), so I really cannot express my gratitute enough!

I passed CR and SBM. Wanted to once again say a huge thank you for all the help in preparing me for this battle. I felt prepared going into these exams and the insights that you were providing proved invaluable during the process. It was a refreshing approach after the big tuition providers and I am glad that you capitalised on the market gap. Also, incredible CR summary notes. After a bit of tabbing, the book becomes lethal in scoring exam marks!

Anton K

purchaser of SBM Exam Room Notes

I found [tutor team] advice and teaching really helpful, which helped me to stay calm in the exam and apply what I knew in a really pragmatic way. I had previously taken SBM twice before signing up to your SBM course. Pleased to say I have finally passed! I also used your Case Study sessions, Exam Room Pack and Cracking Case book from last year where I passed Case Study first time. Thanks for being a great learning provider - I will definitely be recommending your resources to others.

[Tutor name] has been great so far, he has a very engaging style and makes the SBM content feel manageable, despite the volume of material.

I am grateful to be in a safe and nurturing environment where I can be me. Thank you for bringing back the joy and excitement in learning and rediscovering concepts like EVA. The tutor's explanation of EVA as unnecessary profit was very funny.

Thank you for your help and assistance. The fact that during this pandemic you are still the go-to tuition provider does tell the rest of us that you have the right business model and a good grasp of SBM in real life!

I was a part of the Case Masterclass and purchased the on-demand course for SBM and CR along with Exam Room Notes for all of them. I passed all 3 exams today first time despite going through some really difficult personal circumstances. I passed CR with 50% and SBM with 54% but I had not attempted a single exam question beforehand, only annotated your Exam Room Notes and used your on-demand video course.

I passed both Case Study and SBM. For SBM, the on-demand videos proved to be fruitful, particularly the MAP structure which set or instilled a good structure and thought process for each part of the question I answered. The FM recap video helped me with hedging, as I can honestly say 2 weeks prior to the exam, I had no idea how to do it, so that video was excellent!

Anthony M

Thank you! I am now a newly qualified accountant. I used the on-demand videos for CR and SBM which helped me pass first time. They really worked for me as a visual and kinesthetic learner, so going over many practice questions through the video was well suited to my learning style. I have been recommending your course to my associates. Many thanks again!

Dami O

I am pleased to say I passed with 80 marks! I can't be more grateful your team for all the help in the study materials and I couldn't imagine a better way to prepare! I have been a loyal user of your materials (esp the Exam Room Notes) for the Advanced Level examinations and they're SUPER useful (scored 81 for CR, 70 for SBM and CS score abovementioned), so a HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to the tutors for the hard work and dedication especially with such a challenging time for the Case Study paper.

I just wanted to let you guys know that I passed Case Study!! There is a chapter in the Cracking Case book that advises students what to do in case they screw up their timing (like a Plan B). I employed Plan B in Requirement 3 because I did screw up my timing, and it saved my life, so thank you so very much. I have used almost all of your resources for SBM, CR and Case Study. I will be more than happy to recommend your services to the students here in Saudi Arabia and on social media.

Muhammad S

A really useful session which provided a comprehensive overview of SBM. The comments passed on from the ICAEW Tutor Conference were particularly helpful as they were never shared by my regular tuition provider. Thank you very much!
