Few CA Preparation Tips from CA Vaishali
Understanding of the concept matters more than the number of times you have finished your syllabus.
In CA, it does not matter whether you a brilliant or average student in school and college. Your past school Grades need not be a reflection of your performance in CA. After all, large number of students mug up to get Great Grades at school level their Grades, and I can tell you for sure, mugging isn’t great help here.. Like I said, CONCEPTS do matter…
Start CA Course, only if you are serious about completing it. IF YOU DON’T TAKE CA SERIOUSLY, I bet it would heartily reciprocate and IT WOULD NOT TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY.
Conceptual knowledge is everything in CA. Without learning the concepts in each subject, you should not go forward. Today many people are in the business of confusing students. Any qualified CA would tell you that without the Study Material, you would for sure not sail through.
Its like you need to have the ability to read words, before you can read sentences/paragraphs. If you don’t know how to read words, for sure you can never read sentences.
Balance your time to devote equal attention to all the subjects.. there is no point of a distinction in one if you fail in any of the papers… While the tilt of mind would be to do what we are good at, balancing is more important than feelings.
Might seem contradictory, but you should play to your strengths to cross the lucky aggregate number. There has to be a FRIENDLY subject that should help you sail through.
Some wise men said “Those who don’t learn from History, are bound to be doomed”.. Same applies here as well..
Past papers give you great insight of the mindset of the paper setters. Do look at them on a regular basis as you study a particular Chapter, and not when the exams are near.
Its better to prepare 80% chapters completely, than 100% with an average learning curve.
