If you are studying in the CBSE stream with Math as one of the subjects, you need not prepare in advance for CPT. It is enough if you prepare for two months after your Board exams for the June attempt of CPT. You can easily clear it.
In case you are doing your Higher Secondary under the State Board syllabus, check if the Math portions you have aligns with the Quantitative Aptitude syllabus of CPT. If not, try to have some extra coaching for that paper alone during the annual holidays after Class 11.
you need not focus on problems. You can directly start your preparation from MCQs in problems and MCQs in theory.
In the theory part, there is no need to read questions and answers given in the main material. Simply read the fast track notes given for theory in the Fast Track material. Then you can prepare for MCQs on theory given in the main material.
For Accounts, most students just refer to the Material and Notes as if Accounts is a theory subject. If you revise in that way, you will definitely feel that you can answer all the questions. But this is not the way to revise this subject. You must solve the MCQs on your own. You now have time to solve only the important ones. It is impossible to solve all the MCQs at this moment.
The most important area of Accounts is Journal Entries. If you are thorough with Journal Entries, then you can understand all the chapters very easily. In every chapter, you will learn some new entries. So, concentrate more on entries in each for your convenience. We have provided all of them in our Fast Track material. For practice, we have also provided some additional entries in the main material itself (at the end of the 1st chapter). Also practise those entries. As and when you find some free time, try to memorise the entries given in the Fast Track material.
Give a lot of importance to the chapters of Company Accounts, Capital & Revenue Expenditure as and when they are updated.
Chapters which require more concentration: Final Accounts, Partnership Accounts, Company Accounts & Accounting: An Introduction
