About the book
Every accountancy qualification requires students to prepare financial statements from a trial balance as it tests the core skills of double entry bookkeeping and knowledge of accounting standards.
This book will take you from the basics of double entry bookkeeping assuming no prior knowledge through to accounting standards examined at advanced levels of professional examinations, covering everything in between.
A student’s guide to preparing financial statements is split into three sections. Section 1 covers topics typically tested at foundation levels such as depreciation, accruals and prepayments and irrecoverable debts. Section 2 is aimed at intermediate level topics tested such as tax, leases, revenue recognition and financial instruments. Section 3 focuses on advanced level topics including pensions, share based payments, advanced financial instruments and foreign currency transactions.
Additionally, it is accompanied by over 100 pages of free on-line content including mindmaps, technical discussions, recap questions and answers and a glossary.
The book is relevant to all professional accountancy qualifications as well as A-level and university degrees. The book is suitable to be used either by dipping in and out of it as a reference book or by reading it from cover to cover. A student’s guide to preparing financial statements will prove to be your indispensable companion through all your accountancy exams and beyond.

accountancy students studying for A-levels, degrees and professional exams.
It starts with the proformas of financial statements and the basics of double entry bookkeeping and
takes students all the way through to deferred tax, pensions and financial instruments. It is suitable
for all students studying financial accounting and the sooner you buy it, the better!
Every topic is clearly explained and then illustrated by an example showing how to account for it in
the context of preparing financial statements from a trial balance - a key skill tested in exams.
The on-line resources are also great with section recap examples taking you through how to answer
exam standard questions step by step as well as mindmaps to help your revision.
It is perfect for those that need to brush up their knowledge if they have gained exemptions or had a
gap in their studies and will also prove beneficial in the work place as a quick reference guide.
As with all the books in Kaplan's Student's guide series it is written in a clear, simple way & is
wonderfully bright and colourful.
When I teach ACCA F7 and CIMA F1, students tell me they are struggling with basics as they have gained exemptions from ACCA F3 and CIMA CO2 and want a quicker route to close that knowledge gap, I would advise them to buy this book.
It is so clear and easy to understand. The book starts with a very good introduction to double entry debits and credits which if you feel you have never understood double entry, rest assure she will help you finally understand it!
Sally then gradually progresses with different accounting standards in a very simple way to follow and off course her layout of the book is very attractive with her choice of colours, lovely and bright like Sally!
The quality of the book is again over and above expectations: new!!
I have purchase this item to assist me in tutoring a friend and thus I cannot yet comment on the content quality but will do so as soon as possible.
If you are in a similar situation, with a limited background in accounting, do yourself a favour and get this book!
This book has benefited my understanding of the syllabus and the areas that the examiner is looking out for in the exam. I wish that this book had been published sooner as it follows on from the concepts taught to me in the Accounting module excellently. It would have put me in an advantageous situation going into my FA course, reducing the volume of work during my time at college.
Thank you very much Sally.
