  • “The calculation workbook ... is very comprehensive and includes calculations which are used as questions in the exam. The examples are clear and broken down into step by step stages... The resources provided by Brand Financial Training were key to my success. I shall certainly be trying them for future exams.”
    Suzanne WalkerSuzanne WalkerAdviser, The Pension Drawdown Company, Cobham
  • "Thanks for the great material, I used the MP4 AF4 and other R02, J10 material and found it very helpful in passing R02, J10 and AF4."
    Richard BaxterRichard BaxterSenior Financial Adviser, Gower Financial Services, Guernsey
  • "I passed R02 - No doubt thanks to your fantastic workbook which helped no end!  With the extra work that I did going through your workbook, this helped a great deal with feeling confident which in this exam particularly was useful given that the technique and timing is as important as the knowledge and skill in ensuring that you get through the questions in a timely manner. One could so easily become distracted or frustrated trying to work out/remember one particular formula to the deficit of the other questions but your workbook enabled me to feel glad that there were so many calculations in the exam whereby before I actually feared them."
    David GunnDavid GunnAdviser, Nottingham
  • “The hard work needed to get through exams is paying off. Many more advisers have been inspired to learn and work hard. My old boss told me once – we don’t sell widgets – we sell knowledge, trust and confidence. Knowledge is a key component - the trust equation is a whole different subject, but many more advisers have been on a learning journey that is sure to continue - and the stats prove it. Well done to everyone at Brand for supporting them on that journey."
    John ReynoldsJohn ReynoldsExpert Pensions, Edinburgh
  • "Brand are my 'go to' company for providing exam resources. In the past 18 months I've sat (and passed) 12 CII exams and I know I wouldn't have been as successful without the mock papers, calculation workbooks and analysis I've purchased from Brand Financial Training. Thank you!"
    SaffieSaffieParaplanner, Lorica Wealth Management, Bournemouth
  • "I've always used your mock papers for past exams which have been very helpful. As I found the AF3 exam tough to study for, I bought the study notes and calculation workbook for more guidance. Both I found very helpful and in the end helped me to pass AF3."
    Claire ScottClaire ScottParaplanner, Johnston Carmichael Wealth Ltd, Edinburgh

How will these help me to pass?

Many exam-takers lose vital marks when it comes to performing calculations as they haven’t nailed down the exact process and order in which to perform the calculations, and haven’t spent enough time practising them.

The number of marks gained or lost on calculation questions can make the difference between a pass and a fail. Just a little more time taken on calculations during the revision period can give you the confidence you need to perform any calculation that could come up, so that you know you will gain top marks on all those calculation questions.

Unfortunately, not enough calculation practice and help is given in the study text, and mock papers don’t tell you exactly how to get from the question to the answer.

Our calculation workbook for J10 solves this problem by guiding you through the calculations, step-by-step, and providing detailed answers. Couple them with other resources in our study kits and you’ll be well prepared for your exam.
