How to prepare for CA CPT in 60 Days

“Fact  – If you are ready,  it is easy to clear CA CPT with 60 days preparation”

Study Material

When you register for CA CPT with ICAI, you will get 4 text books (one for each subject) and 2 mock test books (30 model papers).

This ICAI material is your best source of knowledge for CA CPT exams. If you complete all the questions given in 4 books and 30 model papers it is more than enough, you don’t need any additional material.

Your 3 steps of success


First step in your preparation is to start understanding and learning the concepts. Start taking subjects one by one following the time-table.

Now what should be your method of studying?

  1. First a fast reading of the chapter should be done.. usually one page should not be given more than 5 minutes
  2. Second reading should be slower, understanding each topic clearly.
  3. Once the reading is done all questions given in the book should be attempted. First attempt all questions without using any answers and then check all questions at the end
  4. You should mark your questions in a special way..i.e. the questions which were correct in the first attempt should be crossed and there is no need to attempt these questions again…all other questions which were incorrect should be done on next revision and follow the same steps of crossing the correct questions at that time.


Revision is a very important part for achieving success in any exam. You remember only 20% of what you read after 24 hours, so multiple quick revisions are very necessary. See timetable for the frequency of revisions required.


Practice is the most important part of your preparation and should be given 100% focus. Once you have completed your first revision, its time to take mock test.. mock test help a lot in preparing you for exam day and also highlight your weak areas.

Read this post on why mock tests are important and this post where CA Final topper tells how mock tests helped her.

Study Group

Forming a study group helps in discussing queries and getting a better understanding of the subject. If you have friends taking CA CPT exam then you can form a study group with them or else you join an online forum for forming a discussion Group.

Exam Day

You should be completely relaxed and rested for the final exam day. See this post on tips for CA CPT Exam Day.

    Sir ple. tell me that after how many days from regestration,i will got my books by post..



    Generally it takes 15-20 days, but it also depends on your location. Call ICAI to check the status.



    Then you are in a difficult situation. You should start focussing on maths now and try to be able to solve maths problem quickly. Be selective and leave the topics you think are difficult to work.
