I won the AB Snow Regional Prize for Corporate Reporting at the August 2020 sitting with a score of 86%! Feel I should write in as I used all your Exam Room Notes books for 2020. I found them easy to follow as I used them every day since I bought them. They're logically written and very useful for quick referencing. As I barely have any time to study (my employer does not provide any allocated study time), they saved me a lot of time compared to compiling notes.

I bought your Exam Room Notes books for CR, BPT and SBM and found them really, really excellent. I taught myself for these modules using just the ICAEW materials and your books and was able to pass first time thanks to how the information was laid out by you.

I have purchased all of your Advanced Level Exam Room Notes, the Cracking Case book and the Smashing SBM book. Whether I pass or not the first time, the books are phenomenal help and I'd be so much more confused at this point without them.

Thank you for responding so quickly and thank you for your advice. I have told all my friends at college to buy your books and they did, they loved them too!

I used your guidance and Exam Room Notes and have very comfortably passed all 3 of my final exams. I cannot recommend you highly enough for the value you provide and I hope you continue to grow and help more people succeed. Compared with the previous provider I used, your notes are more succinct and easier to use in an exam. Thank you!

I am pleased to say I passed with 80 marks! I can’t be more grateful your team for all the help in the study materials and I couldn’t imagine a better way to prepare! I have been a loyal user of your materials (esp the Exam Room Notes) for the Advanced Level examinations and they’re SUPER useful (scored 81 for CR, 70 for SBM and CS score abovementioned), so a HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to the tutors for the hard work and dedication especially with such a challenging time for the Case Study paper.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I access my PDF instantly?

Yes. As soon as payment has been made, you will be given immediate access to your PDF. You will have a period of 1 week to download your PDF, which can then be printed for your own use at a later date. Full instructions on how to download your content are provided after purchase. 

Can I print the PDF?

Yes. The PDF can be printed in the normal way as we have not set any restrictions in relation to printing. 

Please note that the book is protected by UK copyright law and therefore you may only print the PDF for your own personal use. You may not share any content without our prior written permission.

Is my PDF copy-protected?

To prevent unauthorised circulation of our materials, your PDF will be unobtrusively watermarked with a faded grey watermark inserted underneath the text. 

We have also disabled any copying and pasting from the PDF, for obvious reasons. 

If you have any questions on these aspects prior to purchase, please send us a WhatsApp message to +44 7483 951435, email us at hello@paradigmshift.training or sign up for a free account and set up a message to @Tutor Team within our learning platform. 

Isn't 557 pages a lot of content? I thought the book was supposed to condense the content?

Please note that the book includes notes on all Advanced Level financial reporting, audit and assurance topics, as well as notes on all relevant financial reporting, audit and assurance topics from the Professional Level. The original ICAEW Workbook content relating to all of these areas totals several thousand pages!

Given the amount of content that can potentially be tested, there is unfortunately no way around including a significant number of pages, but all our notes are significantly condensed compared to the equivalent ICAEW Workbooks at the Advanced Level and Professional Level. 

We would prefer to be thorough and cover all the potential areas that could be tested than to try to condense things any further or focus only on "favourite" topics as we feel this is dangerous at the Advanced Level. 

Although you will need to put some time into reading through and familiarising yourself with our notes, this will be time well spent as you will revise all key Advanced Level and Professional Level content in a single book that can also be referenced on exam day much more quickly than the equivalent ICAEW resources for multiple Advanced Level and Professional Level topics.

I don't have a printer at home. What do you recommend?

You may wish to use your employer's printer (subject to obtaining permission for this from your employer) to print the PDF. As the printing will be for your own personal use, this is permissible under our licensing rules. Please ensure that the PDF is securely deleted from your employer's systems after printing. 

Alternatively, you may wish to send the PDF to a parent or friend who can print the document. Provided that the printing is for your own personal use and that no further copies are printed for other students, this is permissible under our licensing rules. Please ensure that the PDF is securely deleted from your contact's systems after printing. 

After many requests from students, we have now returned to full hardcopy provision of the book (via Amazon) so you may wish to purchase the hardcopy instead of the PDF edition. Please note that purchasing the PDF does NOT entitle you to receive a copy of the hardcopy book as we do not have the administrative resources or time to send these out. You will need to choose between purchasing either the PDF or purchasing the hardcopy book on Amazon. 

Do you provide any further resources for the book?

We have created a set of over 200 quick-fire questions relating to the 2022 syllabus changes as well as further tips and tricks videos which are available in the Enhanced Edition of the book at a further cost of £15. We will make the link required to purchase the Enhanced Edition available soon.

Just to be clear: these additional resources are entirely optional so you do not have to purchase them to make full use of the PDF book. However, we know that many students are keen to obtain access to further practice resources so please do consider upgrading to the Enhanced Edition if you wish. 

What should I do if I have any questions prior to purchase?

Just drop us a line and we will be happy to assist further.

You can send us a WhatsApp message to +44 7483 951435, email us at hello@paradigmshift.training or sign up for a free account and set up a message to @Tutor Team within our learning platform.
