Description

One of a series of regularly updated Study Texts providing coverage of the examinations of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), this workbook covers the entire syllabus and includes numerous questions from past examinations with full suggested solutions. The text is structured along the lines of the syllabus itself, and attempts to describe each topic to the level of knowledge required for the examination, in language and with numerical examples that students with little or no expertise in either economics or statistics can understand. Each part of the text ends with a bank of questions, some of them drawn from past AAT examination papers, together with full suggested solutions. The text has been revised to meet the requirements of the 1988 syllabus. A companion Practice and Revision Kit (principally comprising progressively arranged series of questions and solutions) is also available.
