  • “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
  • "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
  • “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 Financial Training's calculation workbook is an excellent tool for learning and understanding the complexities of financial formula. An essential resource ... It comes highly recommended."
    Jonathan HuntJonathan HuntDirector, Expert Financial Solutions Ltd, Oxfordshire
  • "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."
    Matt HignettMatt HignettIFA
  • "I would like to say a big thank you for the quality, depth, clarity and effectiveness of the study material packages which I used for the RO2, RO3 and RO6 exams allowing me to attain the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning."
    Antony GummersonAntony GummersonClient Support, W Denis Financial Services, Leeds

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 R04 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.
