First question arises, should you go with self study or join some coaching classes?

Self study: you can go for self study, if you have enough time and are determinant to crack CA Final in first attempt. The syllabus of Final is very much lengthy, so at least 8 months are required to finish study material and to do full revision in past two months of exam. CA Final is just focused on conceptual clarity. The most important thing you will need to have when you go for self study in CA Final is: you will need to get materials of some good coaching class and never miss to clear doubts by asking your seniors or other friends who attend classes. with this way you can crack CA Final with self study also, and follow our given study planner to get most out of the time you have.

Coaching classes: You can join coaching classes if you want to be at more secure and safe side because it will be time bound and full of coaching tips and materials (so good conceptual clarity also). Coaching is always recommended in CA Final by most of the rankers also. But I have seen rankers in CA Final who had never attended any classes, even.

Studying with proper planning will take you to the heights of success. Someone has said, “If you fail to plan then you plan to fail“. So, for self study preparation of CA Final, you will have to make proper plans and will have to follow it. Below I have given time required to complete CA Final’s all subjects each topics in hrs. In last I have attached CA Final May 2014 Planner. You can use the CA Final study plan with the tips given below.
