Hi there,

as you know, the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accounts) qualification is a very extensive one, so finding extra time to take additional courses on top of studying for the 14 papers you need to pass may be quite tough!

Having said that, if you are motivated to gain an edge there are of course many many finance and accounting courses taking place all over the world on a regular basis - it's just a matter of choosing between them. The best idea is to narrow down your area of interest - what topic do you find most interesting? Taxation, management accounting, governance and ethics?

Once you've decided that, you can use the site to look through your options. If you are in Pakistan, the best option may be to look for an online or distance learning finance course that you can complete in your own time.

Another piece of advice is to check with the company that you are taking the ACCA training with, because they can often suggest extra reading material, exercises or even full revision courses for those wanting to go over the material and/or deepen their knowledge even further. This could help you gain an edge while still keeping the focus on highly relevant themes and topics.

Best of luck with your search!
