I have always loved murder-mysteries and looking for clues. My favourite fictional detective is none other than Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie’s famous Belgian crime-fighter.

As a child, I made the natural transition from Tintin to Agatha Christie and my Mum would only buy me a book of my choice if I agreed to read a classic first. This tough love ensured I developed a love of literature.

Recently, one of my favourite programmes on Disney + has been ‘Only Murders In The Building’ with Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez. The clever script keeps you guessing, and the cast has attracted viewers from different demographics.

As a result, when I was recently in New York I was determined to visit the ‘Arconia’ which is the iconic building where the show was filmed.  It is actually called the Belnord and is truly a magnificent building. It was sobering to hear that the smallest apartments there are worth $10 million.

Doing an Advanced Tax case study is similar to a murder mystery in the sense that you have to pick up clues from the question and plan your strategy to ensure you pass the question. Having analytical ability is crucially important to passing your exams and being successful in your career.

If you are planning on doing Taxation or Advanced Tax in September 2022, I recommend you purchase Tax Condensed or Advanced Tax Condensed which will allow you to learn the technical rules If you then practice the key questions I recommend, you too will be ready for anything the examiner throws at you.

 These books will really make the difference. You can purchase them using the links below:
