Make your own notes: I studied CPA FAR Exam in a sequence i.e. lectures/ Skill practice videos/MCQs / & SIM.

Then did PRS…

Cracking regulation is not a very easy task, as the whole subject is very new but when you understand each and every concept then it’s one of the most interesting subjects.

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…

Happy to share that I, Namrata Jain cleared REG with 83. I just wanted to share a few points on how I prepared for the exam and successfully cleared it. Basically, I had no strategy for studies, but I made sure that I’ll schedule exams only when I feel I’m prepared for exams. Before starting my preparation, I noted suggestions that were shared by our Alumni. At first, I focused more on getting total concept…
