ACCA Financial Accounting (FA) Exam Preparation Course
The syllabus for Paper FFA/FA, Financial Accounting, introduces the candidate to the fundamentals of the regulatory framework relating to accounts preparation and to the qualitative characteristics of useful information. The syllabus then covers drafting financial statements and the principles of accounts preparation.
The syllabus then concentrates in depth on recording, processing, and reporting business transactions and events. The syllabus then covers the use of the trial balance and how to identify and correct errors, and then the preparation of financial statements for incorporated and unincorporated entities.
The syllabus then moves in two directions, firstly requiring candidates to be able to conduct a basic interpretation of financial statements; and secondly requiring the preparation of simple consolidated financial statements. During the course special Course Notes will be used extensively produced by IAB international academy of business. Students should use their study text for additional reference purposes.
IAB’s course notes include explanatory text punctuated by classroom activities. Most of these activities create the illustrations that are presented by the author in a traditional textbook. It is important to complete the activities because in most cases they form a link in the flow of explanatory text. If you leave them blank it will be difficult to review the text at a later date.
