BEST BOOKS FOR PREPARATION OF CPT


although the study material provided by the ICAI is enough but i am suggesting some good reference books which will help you a lot.

FOR LAW

> economic module

> scanners


FOR ACCOUNTANCY

> t.s garewal and module

FOR MATHEMATICS

> quantitative aptitude by tata mcgraw hill

OTHER GOOD BOOKS










WHERE TO GET THEM


as you have not mentioned where you stay so i can'nt tell you the exact location from where you can get these books.

but you can easily get these books in any book stall in your city.

you can also buy them online.


TIPS FOR PREPARATION FOR CPT


> Prepare well by the study material given by the ICAI

> Take hints from the candidates who have already passed the cpt exam

> if you not from maths background then you have to get passing marks out of 150

> before starting any chapter in accounts prepare its theory very well , it will make your base strong

> prepare mercantile law well because its very scoring after accounts.

> in economics first complete macro then go for micro , as macro is more scoring.

> in quantity aptitude , integration , differentiation , co relation and regression is very important

> first try to solve the m.law section first , then economics followed by aptitude at last accounts

In the CPT exams questions are asked from the below sections:

All the questions are asked in objective mode only
Candidates scoring minimum 50% marks are declared as pass


For Non Commerce Graduates, if they have scored more than 60% marks in Graduation, they get exemption from appearing in the CPT exams and get direct admission in the IPCC stage
