Thank you everyone for the feedback on the recent P4 paper - it has been very valuable indeed. I wish you all well and I hope that the result comes out your way or, at the very least, as a result of this blog you have a clearer idea of what it is that we are looking for if you are faced with a resit.
Many of you have expressed the great benefit you have obtained from P4 even though the examinations are perceived to be demanding. I appreciate that comment and I am sure the ACCA do as well.
For those taking P4 in the future what I will repeat is that the authorised manuals are very good in that they do take you through the syllabus in a way that no other textbook can. They have been written specifically for the paper and I would encourage anyone taking P4 to make sure that they have one and work with it. They form a solid core of study material which you can then supplement by appropriate courses and/or reading to maximise your chances of passing.
I have brought the ACCA's attention to your comments and I am sure that in some small way what you say will influence and shape opinion. Criticism, whether good or bad, is always valuable.
Keep viewing the blog.
