When it comes to isca there is no way other than to mug up.. Atleast the bold point you have to mug up and the material inside that bold point you have to understand it in a conceptual manner.

if you understand the purpose of this subject then it's not difficult to learn and write in the exam.

mugging will not help, because if you mug up and you do not understand what is asked in question, then mugging will be of no use.

I will suggest if you have accessibility to Swapnil Patni's class, try that.

if you don't know how/what to do its always better to go to experts and outsource, instead of wasting the time in playing on your own, it cost money only but it can buy you peace.

if you are looking for the career in IT/IS Audit, then it's better to go for in-depth study else prepare to get the exemption by outsourcing and leverage on other subjects.

before joining his class I got 19 and after his ~25 days class, i got 57, I could not cross 60 because of my handwriting.

truly speaking I did not spend much time, only attended his class and read his material 3 times.

here I am not promoting anyone's business, just sharing my experience.

It may sound ridiculous, but one needs 3-4 reading in Isca to get good marks in my opinion. I had studied from module and referred Jignesh Chedda for my attempt.

Sandeep: Hi, I have not taken classes of Swapnil patni sir however am studying from his book. It would be very helpful if you could post Pnemonics of some chapters especially chapter 7) as it is not clearly mentioned in the book and my best guess is he lets you understand that only if you take his class.

You have ample time to study thoroughly for May 2017 attempt. For ISCA, ICAI's study Material is the best .i.e. Module & Practise Manual are more than Sufficient. To Score Well, you have to study from Module. There is no need to mug up. Join some good classes for ISCA. Try to  understand the subject, then you can easily score upto 60-70. ISCA is the least risky subject as it is pure theory paper.

All the questions in exam come from Sudy Material Only(i.e. Module & Practise Manual). So focus on understanding the subject by taking classes from Some good professor.You will easily score 60-70. ISCA Can really help you to Clear Group II. Questions come straight away from Module. They cant twist questions in ISCA as it is pure theory subject unlike Costing and Taxation.

I myself got exemption in ISCA with the help of classes and Studying from ICAI Module.

So, focus on ISCA and you can easily score 60-70 marks.Module and Practise Manual are more than Sufficient.Just go through Mock Test Papers of last 3-4 attempts and RTP.All the best.

Hi ,

Stricyly My Personal Opinion ,

1. Class : Not necessary 

2. Book : Institute material - Module + PM (Throughly)

3.Book (only for Summary at last minute) : I dont know about latest edition of Paduka , but in my time there was paduka's handbook of ISCA where in starting 52 pages (in cream coloured pages) entire books summary was there .. focus on those summary pages .

4. Revise Revise and Revise 


All the Best
