Commerce optionals students- lets form a group for discussion

Have started my preps for CS - 2016 with commerce optionals. Have decided not to go for any coaching. Lets form a group of like minded people for useful discussions


  • Great idea. Whats your background? I have done MBA.
  • I am a chartered accountant..
  • i am too ca
    but failed in this prelims
    will try in 2016
  • Ok..are you guys doing any coachings etc
  • I also join here
  • I'll also join in this group
  • i am also in
  • I am interested.
  • Hi, i am starting today preparing for paper 1 commerce.. starting with process costing-cost accounting from mn arora latest edition.. will update daily , chapters which i do..

    Don't want to join coaching as only 2 options in delhi-rankers and vajiram- vajiram batches already filled in sept end and rankers will start in dec, but timings do not suits me of rankers..though have bought rankers material from market but its not latest-few booklets are latest, but others are old..

    once i finish with cost accounting and management accounting, i will start with financial accounting-as by that time updated version of company act books will come, as 6 more changes have been proposed in company act 2013. Also new Ind As will be incorporated- i am not a CA, so not sure how much these will effect old accounting standards.. But when i am starting fresh-as forgot most of paper 1 subjects-which i did in 2nd year ( 3rd and 4th sem) of my college, i prefer to read from latest books..

    using b.com hons books of Du as start up for paper 1..after completing will shift to Commerce papers of upsc and then to advanced books as necessary like jawahar lal etc and robbins for paper 2..will be setting daily targets for myself and not monthly or quarterly-as hardly achievable unless backed by daily targets

    if any one else interested to cover side by side , please msg
  • I personally feel that coaching institutes are of not much help..Have discussed with many aspirants who have done coaching..They tell me that coaching classes at best help you in finding a circle of friends with similar aspirations..nothing more
  • Hello, completed process costing theory & e.gs-numericals, unsolved numericals will do on sunday .. Will start tom new chapter-abc or job costing
  • Pls suggest material for paper 2 anyone
    Organisation Theory & Behaviour- B.P. Singh & T.N. Chabra
    Organisation Behaviour- L.M. Prasad
    Or you can refer rankers material
  • Hello friends, completed activity based & job costing..took more time as was also covering gs
  • I am in
    where is the group..

    may be due to commerce background, people like working alone..no discussions, self study, different sources of material.. CA doing ipcc modules for paper 1, & looking for answers on how to cover paper 2, commerce graduates or MBA's searching for paper 1 material ..

    But guys paper toh ek he aana hai..its better to form some group & discuss as it is what coaching will provide us..

    If joining coaching would have ensured my success , I would hv definitely gone for commerce coaching..

    Still don't know which coaching is good..as remember seeing some guy commenting here that 58 rank girl this year did from Vaji, but also saw her on Rankers ads..

    still even if no group formed, I will keep posting my regular updates on topics covered..

    Will be starting management accounting part-as most numericals of cost accounting from it..

  • Completed standard costing & variable analysis & budgeting..

    Will now start accounts with shares & debentures.. Will then progress to Ind As-will compare with Gaap based As & then proceed..
  • Commerce2016 u r going at a good speed. .done with GS part?
  • Commerce2016 u r going at a good speed. .done with GS part?

    thanks.. Yes, gs I hv covered nicely, current affairs from vision etc not covering these days-just reading newspapers & cutting some stuff..

    but traditional part of gs I hv done..also current affairs till 2014 I hv covered
  • Does anyone know a bookshop where Organisation Theory & Behaviour- B.P. Singh & T.N. Chabra is avilable? can't find it online.
  • null Jain book agency
  • @ chachajeewithsabu
    Its available in kamla nagar book stores, near north campus.. Or u can try any other bookstore near by any of delhi university colleges..
  • Also as told by ias aspirant 99- jain book shop in CP in delhi-with few branches in ncr..but there don't expect any discount..but its a very nice bookstore..they also have online catalogue.. You can order from it or can call and order-number will be on their site
  • @ all-will company act 2013 affect practical problems in amalgamation, absorption or reconstruction for the year 2016 mains..if yes how , or can you provide link on article
  • Today batches at Rankers would have started as per its schedule..

    Me now moving to financial mgt.. Will start from tomorrow..
