Our prize-winning ACA tutor Kieran Doe has developed our unique SBM materials which include technical notes specifically designed for use in the exam, master plans and exam technique guidance.​

Technical Notes

Our SBM technical notes concisely summarise the technical content so that you can quickly look up the information you need in the exam. The notes include:

  • easy-to-use financial management, financial reporting, data analysis, business strategy and assurance notes for each subject area

  • reminders of points to consider including in your answers

  • calculation proformas


A small sample can be found at the bottom of the SBM page.

SBM Master Plans

To ensure that you use your study time as effectively as possible, we have broken the syllabus down into examinable topics so that you can allocate your time to specific examinable topics. For each topic, we have  listed the past exam questions which examined the topic. There is also a reference to how frequently the topic is examined, the extent to which it is examined and the SBM video class which demonstrates the exact exam technique to use for that type of question.


Exam Technique Guidance

We have included our valuable exam technique guidance which contains detailed advice on how you should approach each type of SBM exam question in order to score top marks. This includes detailed guidance on how to answer each type of SBM exam question: financial management; financial reporting; data analysis; business strategy; assurance; and ethics. 

Model Answer

Kieran has worked through the November 2020 exam in full so you see exactly what you can realistically produce within the time limit and under exam conditions. The ICAEW Question Bank answers are not what students are expected to produce. You can watch Kieran work through the exam in the sample class from the video course (see SBM page).

The price for the full package of our SBM materials is £45. You can purchase using a credit or debit card.
