    I'm due to sit all three Advanced Level exams next July and would like to get a head start as I had quite a few exemptions (B&F, MI, BS and FM) and with past exam fails I'd prefer to pass these exams first time round.

    I've had a quick look at the SBM study manual however I'm not sure whether reading it is the best thing to do. My notes on the first chapter alone where nearly 20 pages long.

    Does anyone have any advice on how I can approach studying for these exams?

    I don't do the ICAEW but from a friend who is studying the ACA, practice questions again and again and again. That way you avoid the baggage and the likelihood is the questions are recycled with a few editions here and there. Of course the disadvantage is with this method is you'll lose the finer details of study but if time is limited and you need to maximize your productivity, past questions are the way to go.

    Ive done the ACA exams - you best know your FM,BS,AA and FAR - knowing these really helps.
