Comments received from the 2010 support programme
"CA Connect forced me to be consistent with my studies, as I struggled with that because I was doing my CTA concurrently with my articles. CA Connect is conducted by people who know their work very well and can relay it to their students in the most understandable way. The support I received from CA Connect was amazing as we had the platform to contact the lecturers at any point and time, and they were always available to help, and were always outside at the test/exam venues, routing for us. This in turn boosted my confidence so much that every time I entered an exam room, I wasn’t scared of not making it, but was eager to make my lecturers proud because they believed in us so much."

"Thank you guys for all the support throughout the year. I've been meaning to tell you that your programme is by far the best!" Patricia September – CA Connect Student 2010
"I attempted CTA before and every year would get close to passing but was just not successful. I considered giving up until I heard of CA Connect. I joined the programme and my test results improved by between 20% and 30% per subject. The lecturers are technically exceptional, strongly focusing on understanding the principles other than just learning it off by heart. Not only did I pass my CTA but I was taught life lessons which I will carry with me for the rest of my life. For anyone who is serious about becoming a CA and is prepared to work hard, I recommend CA Connect for they are passionate about you qualifying as a CA and will go to great lengths to ensure you realize your dream. Do not give up, just join CA Connect." Deidre Basson – CA Connect Student 2010
"What I can say is that, you guys revived the dream that I was starting to doubt if it will ever become a reality, I'm now in a position to qualify in 2011. CA Connect was not only providing study support, you were also mentors. I believe that I wouldn't have made it on my own, and with CA Connect by my side I managed to pull it through. Basically the programme is the best and I would recommend that anyone studying CTA should join. When studying part-time it's always difficult to be constant, and there are days when you feel like the wheels are coming off and in my case CA Connect was there to get me back on the road."

"My experience at CA Connect has been a life changing experience. Attempting CTA through distance learning the previous year was challenging and I initially thought that I just required better exam technique to pass CTA. Once I started the CA Connect support class I realized it was not only exam technique that I lacked but also gaps in my knowledge and confidence. CA Connect really goes out of their way to ensure that every of one their students are adequately prepared for their exams. The lecturers are extremely approachable and have depth of knowledge in their individual subjects. I also feel extremely confident that I will do well in the Board exams and achieve my dream of qualifying as a chartered accountant. Thanks CA Connect…you are stars!"
