Very good covering the ACCA P1 paper.

When will we get the other Podcast for other ACCA Papers??

This podcast, I'm assuming, has either not being advertised to students or not advertise well, as I came across this accidentally and found it very useful.

Gets a four star because of this. Please provide Podcasts for the other professional papers such as P2, P3, etc

Great Job!

Boooooring

Boring, machine reading a book word by word including definitions and bullet points.
However, amazing for sleeping problems - hence the 2 stars.
