  • @richallum said: One of the team here has it and it's very good. Thank you! I might have to bite the bullet and order it!
  • Ive just done R06 in April and I used the Brand analysis which comes out 10 days before, which "predicts" possible questions and the answers expected for the exam. I also done some extra research on the case study of my own and used previous CII exa…

  • @julesstewart1983 said: Morning, Yep that’s my plan too - AF1 until we get the case study for AF5 then focus on that. We can only try! If I get these two then I’ll be Chartered so am keen to manage it. Will PM about study buddi…
  • @Andy_Schleider said: I did J05 and AF7 on consecutive days in October as there is a fair amount of overlap in the 2 subjects, but I wouldn't recommend it for 2 AF exams. I am sure there are people who do manage it but I would prefer to concentr…
  • @julesstewart1983 said: Hi, I did AF3 & AF7 on same day last April. It was tough mentally to go back after lunch and write for a further two hours but I did it and passed both. I too am planning AF1 and AF5 in October if you fan…

  • Yeah I am not sure if I done well or not, I literally gave it my all but not sure if I gave the 'CII style' answers well enough. I am hoping I got nearly full marks on some of the Fact Finding Q and the staying self employed questions to help balanc…
  • How did everyone get on? I felt the analysis covered only about 30%/40% of the questions! A lot of curveball ones in there - hoping I managed to get enough marks!

  • My exam ritual is simply 3 weeks of solid studying before the exam - I read the book, re-write it in note form and do CII bank questions over and over. For me thats the only way I learn and ive past all first time. It's dull but I honestly find the …
  • Just to say thank you all for your suggestions! I passed R04 yesterday
  • Yes I found this with all the exams ive done so far - R01, R02 and R05 - Ive had to really sit down and read the books, mindmaps etc and do the questions on CII and Aviva Advisers mock papers. I found that when I went into the exam room that the que…
  • Ah brilliant, thank you so much BP2012 @BP2012 said: Hi I took R04 earlier this year and think that you will be absolutely fine with the work you plan to put in - especially if you have a basic knowledge of Pensions and retirement p…
  • I passed this last week and I found the Brand Video learning helpful especially when describing the formulas. I also wrote out the formulas over and over again (and in my own words) so I understood the meaning of the formulas. Another thing I don…
