  • "Brand have been invaluable to me in achieving DipPFS, their study notes and calculation workbooks are second to none."
    Toby Carmichael-JackToby Carmichael-JackParaplanner, Chase de Vere, Basingstoke
  • "The calculation work book for AF4 was really helpful. A question on Return on Equity came up and I'd literally only come across this in the Brand workbook. Glad to say I passed the exam with flying colours!"
    Russell HammondRussell HammondSenior Partner, London
  • "... I discovered the Brand Financial Training Calculation Workbook. This was an absolute godsend for me, the workbook covered every conceivable type of calculation question and then gave plenty of each type to work through. Once I had worked through (and understood) several of the different calculations, I became so much more confident and dare I say actually started to enjoy the complex calculations; seeing them as an easy way to pick up marks. Brand Financial Training are so easy to deal with and the purchased material comes through instantly via email. Thank you Brand Financial Training."
    Rebecca LucasRebecca LucasDirector, Lime Outsourced Paraplanning
  • "The R01 videos, study notes, workbook and practice papers were so helpful and made revision a lot more approachable. It really helped me to pass when I failed before! I look forward to using your other materials for the other exams!"
    SarahSarahDC Pensions Associate Consultant, London
  • "At the age of 20 I became the youngest person to hold the CII Diploma. I achieved this through hard work and the use of resources including those provided by Brand Financial Training; in particular the mock exams, study notes and the extremely helpful Calculation Workbooks. I'm now moving forward with the Advanced Diploma and continue to use Brand Financial Training's resources to aid my progression to Chartered Status. I certainly recommend them."
    Josh ButtenJosh ButtenMDG MK, Milton Keynes
  • "Brand's solution papers were massively helpful in my preparation for the R06 exam. The expected questions came up on the exam and I was well prepared to give answers that covered all the aspects that I needed to in order to get a good mark. Gained a very good pass so am very grateful to Brand for their support."

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 R02 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.
