These FR notes are exam oriented with exact amount of details towards all the examinable topics. If you prefer to create your own notes, this is the perfect base guide.

These notes make sure you have what you need and you have them organised. I have included the module in the header of every page while including the module and the topic in the footer. On top of that, you will see that easy module contain a sample question and an answer replicating the exam conditions.
