Have done a bit of research and found that there are ways and means for doing the exam without paying out for an accounts package, the one that comes up most is:
Solar Accounts Trial.
Are there any other options?
Have you done B3 yet? If so what software did you use?
Been looking into this myself and see Solus mentioned but a lot of those posts are quite old!
