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. It has been fully revised to meet the requirements of the 1989 course and is likely to be of interest as an introduction to information and computers. A companion Practice and Revision Kit (principally comprising progressively arranged series of questions and solutions) is also available.
