  • "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
  • "... 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
  • "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
  • "The Brand training material certainly helps you to focus on the key information required and get straight to the salient facts. Having to read all of RO4 and JO5 was daunting but by using the notes as a guide it helped me to condense a lot of this information quickly ."

  • I would highly recommend the material from Brand Financial Training for anyone sitting exams with the CII and working towards Chartered status . The material helped me pass J10 and AF4 first time with very little time to study. Excellent value for money! Thank you Brand Financial Training

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.
