    How difficult did you find it? Do you think it's possible to work in accounting practice and complete level 4. How long did it take you? Recommend any specific books/resources? Is it worth it in the end?

    Thanks.

    It's very common to work in an accounting practice and complete level 4, most of my staff (for example) have been through this. AAT is a good qualification in its right, and having taught it for a number of years (as well as ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW) I find it a good practical qualification. You will need to do a final project, it is done on average 6-9 months.

    Recommend any specific books/resources? what topics, apart from the good resources on this site we have a number of learning resources, I am not sure if I am allowed to provide a link and will check this first

    Is it worth it in the end? If you gain the right experience, definitely yes

    I've done level 3 with A levels. But regret it because I didn't do it and work (gain experience). Now I want to do level 4 finding it difficult to find a firm to do it with.
