    Anyone Studying case study classes at Kaplan - can you please get in touch

    Any other recommendation?

    My friend started of at Kaplan. Moved to a local training provider for convenience.

    BPP also provides a similar service.

    Any other recommendation?
    - Learn the case inside-out (aim to read it at least three times)
    - Buy the ACA Simplified cracking case book, it has some very useful tips
    - Kaplan's mock exams are very good practice. Make sure you bring into the exam hall this session's mock exam answers
    - Stick to time religiously. What helped me was a schedule that I brought into the exam hall when I sat my case exam in July and passed 1st time. For example (please note these timings are off the top of my head, use what you yourself judge to be the best timings for yourself)

    9.00AM Read exam paper and highlight
    9.15AM Make plan for requirement 1
    9.20AM Write main body for requirement 1
    9.50AM Write executive summary for requirement 1


    Good luck with the case exam!
Is GoT overrated?
