Welcome to Week 1 of the ACCA Coaching Program!

Welcome to the free LearnSignal ACCA Coaching Program that you're working through alongside thousands of your fellow students from around the world!

Right now the next sitting of the ACCA exams seems far away.

Just for a second think back to the few weeks before your last exam.

You may have some regrets that some things could have been done differently.

This is your chance…..

The LearnSignal Coaching Program is designed to avoid that regret and help feel confident 3 weeks out from the September sitting.

You may have been a member or heard about our recent ACCA Exam Bootcamp that we ran before the June exams.

Over 4,000 ACCA students from around the world used our daily question and solution directed tasks for exam preparation.

We are taking the huge ACCA syllabus you are faced with right now and breaking it down into easier bite-size pieces each week.

The Coaching Program will help both LearnSignal students and those students who have yet to join us.

If you are a LearnSignal student we will:

•    Provide guidance on what to study each week;

•    Point you to the lectures, notes and other resources that may be required; and

•    Encourage you to test you progress using the large amount of quizzes in each topic.

If you are not yet a LearnSignal student, you may have a huge textbook or set of notes in front of you. You may be wondering what to do, how to decide what is important and what time to allocate to each topic.

This ACCA Coaching Program is going to take all of that overwhelming study and break it down into simple, structured guidance for you to follow.
