I can safely say that, Advanced Accounting is one of the easiest and scoring papers in Group 2, if you prepare for it well. To achieve aggregate, you need to score good marks in Advanced accounts.
Study Accounts chapters in the following order:
While preparing for regular chapters, study Accounting Standards simultaneously. Give Stress to particular Important Topics in Accounts. Prepare Notes yourself. It will help you in revision.
Lets divide Auditing Paper into two parts. One is the Auditing Standards part and the other is Auditing Regular chapters.
Auditing Standards is all about framing sentences and using good vocabulary. Quoting Auditing Standard Number is mandatory. However, never quote wrong Standard Numbers.
Study Standards from ICAI Practice Manual only. This is the best book.
The more you practice writing the standards on a book, the more its better. By simply looking at the book, everything looks very easy. But in the exam, you will face difficulties in framing the answer which will then consume lot of time.
Don’t try to study the entire syllabus of IT in a week or so. you need to study each topic a day. Only then you can be able to remember the topics that you have studied.
Spend more time on Networks Chapter. Also, refer the Important Topics we have provided in our other post.
