Detailed P1 Study Guide

What is Paper P1 and

examined, first read our P1 Key

used: D10Q1 means Question 1
from the December 2010 exam.
J11Q2 means Question 2 from the
June 2011 exam, and so on.)
(For questions not listed on the
ACCA website, you can usually find
them by searching using Google.)

It is vital to practice as many examstandard questions as possible. For
most of the chapters in the Lecture
Notes there are listed on our Study
Guide past exam questions to

Please note that because, in Paper

P1, exam questions often test more
than one topic, it is important to work
through our lectures in order. When
there are no questions listed after a
chapter, it is not because the topic is
not important, but because the topic
only forms part of questions questions later in the guide will
include these topics.

Additional resources
OpenTuition also provides additional
resources - again, all free of charge including the following:
A Paper P1 forum where you
can ask for help from (and
give help to) other students
on anything to do with the
A Paper P1 Ask the Tutor
forum when you can get help
directly from the tutor
responsible for P1.

How to use the Study

Work through each chapter of the
Lectures Notes in the order listed,
watching the lectures that are linked
alongside the chapters.
Those chapters that do not have a
lecture attached do not involve
calculations and are for you to read
When you have completed chapters
and watched all of the corresponding
lectures, then attempt the past exam
questions that are listed.
Again, many past questions test more
than one topic they are listed in the
Study Guide after all topics have been
covered in the lectures. It is therefore
important that you work through the
chapters in order.
Tick the check boxes as you work
through the programme, and
remember to ask in the Ask the Tutor
Forum if you have any problems.
