Hello friends,
I request all the commerce optional students to gather here and share their strategy and sources for Mains 2017. Let us all combine our efforts and maximise our chances of getting a good score in commerce this year. Also share your commerce 2016 score if you appeared last year.
All the best.. :)

  • Hi Arpit,

    Hopefully, this would be my first Mains. I haven't been able to start my prep for Mains but am aiming to do so in a day or two. My strategy is to work on the 2 optional papers (Commerce in this case) till the Prelim results are out.

    Since you gave the Mains last year, would it be possible to put down in this thread the books / sources you had referred to and any strategies / tips which you would want to give us ?

    Thanks in advance!

    I also gave my first mains last year. I'll share whatever little knowledge i have.
    I mostly referred to Rankers material for both Paper I&II. Apart from this i did Singh and Chabra(Selective) for OT & OB and did FM from RP Rustagi.
    Hope it helps... :)

  • Hi Arpit,

    Thanks for the info. I did some search on google today and came across this post by J Snehaja (Rank 103 in 2015); it has some very good info

    Source for below: http://www.insightsonindia.com/2016/05/23/toppers-strategy-j-snehaja-rank-103-failed-in-two-prelims-scored-third-highest-interview-score-206-in-2015/

    These are the books that i followed for commerce!
    Commerce paper 1
    Audit, accounts and costing- ICAI IPCC study material
    Tax-TN Manoharan book for ipcc (alternative Girish Ahuja book)
    FM- Rustogi

    Commerce paper 2:
    OB and OT- Chabbra
    HRM- VSP Rao
    I supplemented these books with Rankers notes and current issues.

    Try to practice problems and give equal attention to both papers! I used lot of flowcharts wherever possible. In paper 2 try to give answers in point format with good intro and conclusion. Try to quote relevant examples wherever possible. Hope this helps :) good luck!

    Hey, haven't joined anything champ! Just started to look out for the books to read and other sources. It looks that you are well into your optional prep; if that is so then could you please advise the ones (liike me!) who are just starting their prep with regards to the book / materials / time it might take to cover one reading of the syllabus and the likes. Thanks a lot in advance champ!!

    Yes they do,sometimes, especially in Paper 1. They are not repeated, per se, but similar types of questions are certainly asked.
