My Dear Friends,

I would like to ask you “Is CA Final Cracking difficult?” Many of you must be thinking that it is difficult. But let me tell you it’s not so. It’s just a matter of effort. Rather I will call it a smart effort. Friends I have cracked my CA final in 2nd attempt, was blaming the institute for my terrible failure in November 2013 attempt. But it was not so. When I started framing the strategy for my second attempt I realized that I was the alone person to be blamed & not the institute.  I did a little bit of reengineering & was able to crack it. The strategy which I implemented was as follows.

I used to start my day at 7.30 am with Accounting Standards. I used to give 2 hours per day for any two accounting standards. Then compulsory half hour devotion to costing theory per day which was followed by one theory subject and one practical subject. This schedule was followed continuously for two months was able to get exemption in Audit and ISCA. Got 59 in DT.

Book Referred \ Classes Done:-

Subject Name



I did classes for Practical part & Accounting Standards from V.K.Agarwals Book.

One day before examination from Munish Bhandari’ Laws along with Practice Manual for those Chapter which are given in brief in handbook from Practice Manual e.g. SEBI.

Costing & QT

I did classes. But do institutes study material along with practice manual. (Will help you in solving theory).


Prof. Jignesh Chedda’s Book


I did classes. But referred  Practice Manual & Supplementary Study paper. Do go through  RTP for latest case laws.


CA Yashwant Mangals Handbook along with Practice Manual & suggested Case Laws from Institute. Do go through RTP.

*Friends for audit paper you also require knowledge of all other subjects.

Do practice previous year papers that are available on I.C.A.I websites for all subjects except DT and IDT (as these will be reflect the answers as per the relevant Finance Act). Hope this article helps you in framing your strategy. Friends no one can provide you with the fool proof strategy. It’s only you who can do it for yourself.

All the Best
