CS

How should one prepare for CS Professional?

You have pretty good time to prepare well. Never feel constrained with paucity of time rather focus sharper.
Firstly decide how many groups you are going to appear for. It should be clear to you from the day one, don’t keep the confusion till the end. Give equal importance to each subject.

Plan your papers in a way that you study same paper at least once in two days otherwise you start forgetting the formulas, and it takes comparatively more effort to restart. Subjects like financial management, and taxation must be practiced everyday. Do a bit everyday.

Never start with the assumption that doing easier once in the beginning and tough ones for later point of time is a good strategy. Work on your weaknesses simultaneously. Give equal time to both. Moreover love the hated subjects by studying them more and more.

Practice writing. What happens in exam is that you know the answer fully but you fail to write the answers the way it is expected. Sometimes you end up writing those points which doesn’t make precise answer and you overshoot the limit of words. If the answer is loose in first 3-4 sentences, then it hardly matters how well you have written afterwards. For this practice scanners of every papers. This gives you a lot of confidence while answering. You may buy scanners here.

Have trust in you, maintain peace, maintain a simple life, and embrace the hard work. Best of luck!

AIR: 13th (CS Foundation June 2013)

Valsad, Gujarat

How do you feel after passing CS Foundation Examination?

It’s a great feeling to be a rank holder. It feels wonderful when everyone appreciates you but at the other hand, you set a new bar for yourself. That poses great responsibility to maintain and also to go beyond that.

What all has contributed to this success?

It’s my parents’ blessings and cooperation, and my teachers’ efforts and guidance which is always there for me round the clock. Moreover my passion towards studies has been well nourished by good study materials of Shuchita Prakashans (P) Ltd. that my teachers guided me to study.

What challenges did you face during your preparation?

Choice of coaching classes and study material was a challenge as its quality that matters not the quantity. I also faced family problems during my preparation but I followed my priority which was to clear foundation examination.

How could you cope up with them? How did your coaching/teacher(s) help you?

I had a very small time for studies due to my family responsibilities but I faced the situation with positive attitude and kept balancing both by enjoying them. As far as my coaching classes are considered they are the best.My teachers never make me feel that I am alone. They are always there on my side. In short I can see that we have very free and interactive classes. We have not mug up the things but understood every topic thoroughly.

Your advice to the aspirant for CS Foundation Examination.

Don’t wait for the magic to happen, let it be created by you. If I can do this, yes every student can. It’s something called polishing which matter for the diamond. Always be yourself and be clear about your goals. Always think about yourself to be the most special one and never compare yourself with others

Your views about Scanner or Solved Scanner.

It’s wonderful book. The only thing I recommend that at the end of every book there should be given some 2 or 3 question papers of exam pattern as it help to be more confident. Exam oriented guidance could also add value to the book.
