Everyone has different strategies and plans to study a subject. But, others’ feedback will give you the much needed clarity while moving forward with your studies. Hence, my strategy. First of all, I took live classes of Sripal sir and Suraj sir and then took Becker lectures (especially of Peter Olinto). After taking the lecture, I generally made my own notes which definitely was time-consuming but it helped me during the last days of my…

I DON’T HAVE A VERY DETAILED STRATEGY TO TALK ABOUT, BUT I’M JUST ADDING A FEW POINTERS THAT HAVE REALLY HELPED ME. Just listening to the lectures doesn’t help. Go through the textbook thoroughly and make your notes.Don’t get carried away while making your notes. You will end up having another copy of the textbook if you do so. Just make crisp summaries that you can go through annually. Throw in flow charts or diagrams…

When I couldn’t understand any of the MCQ’s or SIMS, I continued to study the…

AUD AUD is a theoretical subject. So, reading the modules or watching lectures is extremely important. I was more comfortable watching lectures, so I watched all the lectures twice during my studies. I watched lectures for topics like Sampling, Fraud, Audit Risk, SSAE, & SSARS engagements more than twice. SSAE, SSARS, and CPA Independence rules- You need to read these chapters and understand the concepts thoroughly. These parts are completely different from what you study…
