What our
students say

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

Your tutor was the best tutor that I have encountered in my ACA studies. He presented the information in a very clear, concise and calm manner and focused on what students forget to include in their answers - a very good mix between individual comments for myself and general comments for the group was very helpful. He is by far the best tutor when compared to my bland experience at a previous tuition provider and I went from 43 at my first attempt to a mark of 77.

Your tutor went beyond the extra mile for the Case Study tuition course. From the outset it was clear that he had invested an incredible amount of time into preparing the tuition course and this showed because his understanding of the examination and its markscheme was unrivalled. His expert knowledge of the markscheme helped him instil confidence in myself and the other students: we just knew that if he followed his advice, we would pass. I am grateful for his expertise and support.

I just want to say a massive thank you!! I failed Case Study last December only scoring 34, even though I took a full course at a top provider, it was only when studying your course that I realised how little they focused on technique and the smaller details to help get the pass. I bought the Cracking Case book, Cracking Case on-demand course, TIS on two papers and the Exam Room Pack... absolutely fabulous. I wish I had come to you guys sooner for some of my earlier papers to avoid all the frustration and fails.

I have long been using your books throughout my ACA studies, and have found them to be invaluable in helping me pass the exams up to now. Many thanks for producing such great quality revision books.

The FM Q&A is great. I found that it has really helped me cement the basics and the explanations and tips are clear and easy to understand ... which can't always be said of the ICAEW Study Manual!

I used your Cracking Case book for the most recent Case Study exam and followed your format, instead of that of a "leading tuition provider" as you call them. I obtained the highest mark at my firm (82%). Thank you, I have already recommended you to all my colleagues who will be taking the exam in November.

Hi peeps, Genuinely can't believe this but I somehow got 59% and only ruddy well passed Case!!! 100% couldn't have done it without you, especially with all those fatal technical issues in the exam, but somehow against the odds I HAVE PASSED!!! Thanks a million! I'm happy for you to market any and all of my story for marketing purposes because holy crap you guys deserve it! Still crying!

I can only imagine how exhausted you must be after this process and the hours that would have gone into the material, which is many country miles, even worlds apart, from that of any other tuition provider I have ever seen. Thank you also for your words of encouragement. I'm really grateful for all your support.

Just wanted you to pass on my thanks to [tutor names] for helping me to pass Corporate Reporting on my third attempt (my first attempt using your course). I honestly think that the audit part got me through as I was so rubbish at it in my last sitting and [tutor name] provided some much needed tips. Your tutors are truly second to none and I really cannot praise you highly enough for your course content and structure. Thanks again for your awesome service - I couldn't have passed the Hell that is CR without your tutors!

Lisa B

CR course student

Thank you very much for all your help, first with my Case Study preparation and then with my Corporate Reporting preparations. I am very happy, and relieved, to say that I passed my last exam and I cannot be more grateful. Your feedback on my scripts was invaluable, as was your advice to focus on the "big ticket" items and to be careful with questions that can take up a lot of time and give only a few marks in return. Thank you again for everything.
