Answers, before you even ask the question.
What is the difference between the 'Full Course' and 'Revision Course'?
The Full Course covers all of the syllabus in full video lectures of around 30 - 45 mins with lots of illustrations. Some past paper questions are covered within the lectures as well as 5 - 10 min video recaps of all topics. You may feel you don't need revision after that!
The Revision Course focuses on summaries of the main topics on the syllabus and then LOTS of past paper questions covered in full via video lectures. Exam technique and memorisation techniques are covered in detail.
The revision course is designed for those who have done the Full Course but need more practice or those who sat a taught course with a different tuition supplier so know the syllabus but need some more help.
What is the cost of a course?
All courses (Taught or Revision) cost £50...simples.
You will be given the option to add the revision course for a discounted price if you buy the full course...so £90 total for buying both together.
How do I use the course?
- Set up a free account and confirm your email address via the link sent (check junk if you don't see it).
- Pay the fee for the course via Paypal and it will appear like magic in ‘My Courses' when you next log in.
- Print out the fantastic course workbook with millions of illustrations and your shiny brand new solution pack.
- Watch the video lectures and work through the workbook with your brilliant Mapit tutor who will make you wonder why people say these exams are hard.
- Do lots of past paper practice.
By the end of the course you will have enough knowledge and enough past paper practice to pass the exam with flying colours.
Can I download the lectures to my computer?
Unfortunately due to the risk of file sharing this is strictly against our terms and conditions.
Yes, we know that you are student accountants and are bound by the ethical code but some others might risk their careers by stealing our stuff so we can't be too careful.
Do I need to buy a textbook?
Textbooks are soooo last century - we see Mapit as a replacement for a textbook. We cover the whole syllabus and do loads of examples (like a textbook) and you can watch again if you don't get it first time (like a textbook but without the reading).
If you need a safety blanket and have plenty of time to do more illustrations then get the textbook - it will be worth some money soon too! (in an antique shop)
We do recommend that you get an exam practice kit though.
What other materials do I need?
A key part of the Mapit full course is the past paper questions. We suggest (force) you try some at the end of each lecture. These prepare you for the exam.
You will need to print or save these from the ACCA or CIMA website so you can attempt these and mark them accurately.
Why is the full course cheaper than Kaplan, LSBF, BPP etc.?
Cos they have a lot of overheads (see lecture 2 on ACCA F5).
Mapit lectures are just as good and a fraction of the price and if you don't believe me just look at our Youtube & Facebook reviews.
Why is the full course not free?
Are you 'avin a laugh?
We don't want to clutter up our brilliantly cool website with lots of annoying advertising and we want to be able to afford to take the time to prepare and offer a full spread of ACCA and CIMA courses (along with some other brilliant ideas we have to help students).
Unfortunately this costs money so we need you to help us out but we promise to keep the cost as low as we possibly can.
Also free stuff is usually crap - except Mapit free stuff of course!
Can I contact my Mapit tutor with questions about the module I am studying?
If you guys make Mapit a success by using our services this will be offered as part of the course or a bolt-on in the very near future.
The module I want to study is not offered - why not?
We intend to offer a full spread of ACCA & CIMA courses but we want to do it right (we have very high standards you know).
Register your interest or email us and we'll let you know how near or far we are from making your dreams of quality online tuition at unbelievable prices a reality for your chosen module.
Why have I wet myself?
Because you're so excited that you've found Mapit and you're going to be a successful qualified accountant much more quickly than you thought.
Now go buy the module you want, change your pants and start learning!
