Preparation for ICAS / ICAEW CA/ACA course



I’m starting a training contract in September, and will be doing the CA course with ICAS.

I’ve got around a month’s free time so I’m wanting to make sure I’m prepared for the course.

I have no previous accounting experience.

Would people recommend reading books such as ‘Accounting for dummies’? What would you read?

Does any one have any experience of taking the CA or ACA course with no accounting experience? How did you fare?
