    "study materials explain everything very clearly"

    - Jacqueline Covill, Cambridge

    Bookkkeeping is completely new to me but the study materials explain everything very clearly and are totally self contained. I bought a book mentioned in the text as I had some book tokens  - and am a bookaholic - but it is really not necessary.

    The course is set out in manageable, clearly defined sections so that the student knows exactly what is to be studied in each unit and each section. This is really helpful for planning study periods. 

    There is a list at the beginning of each level showing what the student needs to know. Each section has it's own learning outcomes and self test questions.

    The tutor is accessible - I use e-mail as it works best for me and I get a rapid response to my queries. The college admin have answered my single query very quickly too.

    I like the self-paced nature of the course. My circumstances have changed since I enrolled, which means that I will not progress as quickly as I'd hoped, but as there are no deadlines I will complete the course and achieve the qualification in my own time.
