It’s completely impossible to revise the whole course in one day of preparation leave from your regular book.

It will be better if you prepare such short notes in the form of the chart because charts are easy to understand and read.
8. ABC Analysis –
Entire syllabus given by ICAI is important but still, it’s not possible to complete the whole course. Hence, ABC analysis of your course is very important. There are a few topics which are quite more important than others. For Example- at the CA Final level, PGBP and CG are important in comparison to Salary and HP. Therefore, instead of wasting your crucial time on such irrelevant topics, you can invest such them for the important ones.
9. Solve Mock Test Papers –
Practice makes a man perfect… Most of the students make complain that we have given the right answers but ICAI has unnecessarily cut the marks in order to maintain the pass percentage. But friends, ICAI do not have any personal rivalry from you. So stop blaming ICAI. If others can clear this exam then you can also clear. Solve as many mock test paper with solution and past attempt papers as you can, it helps you in understanding the paper pattern, maintaining the speed and properly present your answer.
