Read books conceptually not to memorize book focus on technique and tips which are given on ACCA website for f 5 do kit but again not memorizing kit just learn the concept inside it the tricks inside it.. and plan your study like that select one topic and learn it and do question of that topic and see how examiner test that topic in different ways so like that you will make grip on 1 by 1 topic and in last whole course..

Hi. What I found helps is, since F5 has broad sections, list all the sections and chapters on a spreadsheet (like Excel) and give yourself a "scoring" from 1 to 5 on each section. This way you can find your weaker areas, and choose where to focus more time. Also make sure you are comfortable with standard costing, they seem to examine this a lot. Most of the paper is common sense, not all book-knowledge. So if you get stuck, just try to use common sense as much as possible. All the best!

for someone who has failed this paper more than anybody else in its history and not because i am dumb or anything i have realized one thing (apart from trying to study two weeks to exams as book scholar who does not go to any college). read that variance analysis bit like nobodys biz. the rest are child play.
