Her biggest challenge and how she overcome it certainly provides food for thought for others who have either passed a E1, F1 or P1 under the 2010 syllabus or have received an exemption from a previous qualification.

What was your biggest challenge and how did you overcome it?
My biggest challenge in the Operational Case Study preparation was F1 course content since I received an exemption from that exam. However I still decided to study for F1 exam in order to make sure that I have the required knowledge for the case study. This meant I had to study for F1 and the Operational Case Study simultaneously.

I tried to cover the main topics of F1 and understand the accounting treatment, therefore I followed the BPP online lectures and also the Operational Case Study Workbook was very useful including many practice examples.
