''I decided to study P2/SBR With Gerry after he was recommended to me and I am delighted i chose to study at PAT with Gerry as he is an incredible lecture, not only at the teaching aspect but the support level also.

If you stick to the plan and trust the process from Gerry, you will not be disappointed so long as you put the work in also.And always hustle for the marks :)!!
The support he gives with his weekly motivational quotes is what got me through and knew it would be worth it as Gerry would say you need to believe in yourself.
I will 100% be recommending PAT to any potential ACCA students I know.''

Shauna Fox - SBR, March 2019. 


''Gerry is excellent, helpful, and encouraging F7 Lecturer who REALLY cares about his students.He is very clear, concise, and easy to understand. He explained the material thoroughly and effectively. Clearly puts great effort into his teaching and really wants each student to do well.

He is willing to explain a concept numerous times until students are able to grasp it or until he feels that everyone in the class has an accurate understanding of the discussed concept.

He explained the topics really well by laying out ideas, consistently gave relevant and live examples, while still being interesting enough to pay attention to the whole class. I didn't even fall asleep once.

Excellent notes provided by Gerry which are much better than books.

I would highly recommend Gerry at PAT for F7 to achieve your exam success''.

Gaurav Gupta, December 2017


''For anyone deciding on what lecturer they should go to complete P2 I would strongly advise to go to Gerry Fathy from Professional Accountancy Training.

I have completed 12 out of the 14 exams from F1 to P3 and have attended lectures for all of them and would have to say Gerry stands out as the best because he has a plan how to pass P2 and if you stick to his plan no doubt you will pass.

In terms of course material, lectures and guidance, Gerry has his own notes, exam questions, so your totally focused which gives you peace of mind and by the time you were finished his lectures you will be that well drilled you’ll be ready for P2.

Additionally Gerry is very approachable during and after lectures for answering any questions and has time for anyone no matter what the question is.

Finally I was someone who was quiet apprehensive about P2,

But by sticking to Gerry’s plan, I was focused and passed first time''.

Hugh Smith, December 2017


''I studied SBR with Gerry and I'll never regret it: he is a great lecturer and thanks to his continuous support I have passed this "beast" of ACCA paper that is SBR. He knows how to explain difficult or tedious topics in a helpful way that keeps you interested. 
Gerry's exam technique never fails and guides you all along the way, giving you the necessary steps to build the knowledge that will bring you to succeed in the exam. You won't need to use other books or extra material, Gerry will provide you with everything you need to pass the exam.
I would always recommend Gerry for F7 and SBR ACCA papers because apart from passing the exam, you can also learn some financial reporting as well''!
Irene Torres Garcia - F7 June 2018 and SBR December 2018

”I would recommend Gerry Fahy as FR lecturer as he came highly recommended by a friend of mine. I will definitely sign-up for a future paper that he provides.

There was no surprises at the exam as everything was covered in his lectures and his notes. The notes are brilliant, are to the point and each topic is supported by an array of practice questions. At the exam there is no time to wonder, you just need to complete the set of questions. All the practice questions provided as well as Gerry’s techniques enable to feel comfortable at the exam. 
I received a lot of support from Gerry, he is a great man as a lecturer as well as a person. He was always available when i had a question, never had to wait for an answer. 
Thank you very much Gerry”.

''Impending exam results - doom” - the title of the email I sent to Gerry a few days before exam results as I was sure I had failed SBR and wanted some advice on what my next steps should be - having exemptions from most of the F papers, I was terrified of SBR due to my lack of assumed knowledge but Gerry assured me it would not be a problem.

Gerry’s plan made all the difference. I left most lectures disheartened as I felt like I hadn't grasped each concept discussed, I spoke with Gerry on numerous occasions as I felt like giving up, he was always at the other end of the phone or classroom telling me to not give up and to stick to his plan!

After getting 13% in the mock exam (three weeks before the exam) I had practically given up, but then a motivational message from Gerry would pop up on my email ending with STICK TO MY PLAN.

So I took his advice, I stuck to his plan and last night I got my results - PASSED with 69%.

Gerry’s plan is MAGIC!!!''.

Siobhan Brown – December 2018


''Just a quick email to thank you Gerry for all your help with P2/SBR. I passed with 53%!!! I had an exception for F7 and I was worried that I wouldn’t be up to scratch to deal with SBR. However, Gerry is amazing lecturer and his notes and exam technique/preparation put me at ease. This approach to the class will help you be well prepared for the exam - all you have to do is stick to the plan and follow his method. I found the December 2018 sitting very difficult but I didn’t panic during it and just stuck to GF method and it worked!! It just proves the exam is doable with GF. I can’t recommend Gerry enough for SBR!''.

Thanks again for all your help

Peter Lynch – December 2018


''Truly shocking news - I got 60%!!

I just wanted you to say a big thank you for all the work you put in during the last 6 months of getting me to believe in myself and the tips on how to pass the exam. 

I had no idea what I did in the exam but I did only what you said in your classes - and the results are here!!

Once again THANK YOU for all your inspirational words and daily quotes which kept us motivated.

I'm very disappointed that I will never get to go to another one of your classes again.

YES I DID and of course with you - everyone can do it''.

Ali Akber Mufaddal  - December 2018


''Absolutely delighted with my results. Passed first time thanks to the GF method. 

Gerry is by far the best lecturer I had the pleasure to meet. He will make you work hard, but he gets results''.

Diane Cristie – December 2018


''Gerry's approach is strict and straightforward. He's got notes for the chapter and exam questions to test yourself, all in one pack. The key to passing SBR is attendance and homework.

A few weeks before the exam I went through past questions and used Gerry's notes to answer them.

After failing f7 twice with 49% and finally passing the third time round (with a different college) I was surprised I passed SBR first time round with a solid 50% while studying with Gerry.

Also, it's important to test yourself with mock exams in his class, as it opened my eyes of how unprepared I was!! 

Thanks Gerry''.

Paula Bitinaite - SBR December 2018


''I truly cannot thank Gerry enough for all his help and support during my time studying for SBR. 
His notes are very clear, detailed and easy to understand, i found them much better than the books, once you stick to his plan and put in the hard work you will get the results.
He explains the course material in great detail and is always available for any student to contact him after class or by email/text should we have any questions. 
I am so grateful i attended PAT and had the honour of attending Gerry's class, your inspirational words and daily quotes kept us all motivated to ' STICK TO THE PLAN' and 'HUSSLE' even when we may have doubted ourselves.
I would highly recommend Gerry at PAT for SBR, yes you can and YES I DID''.
