Practice Manual for CA IPCC & Final
Over a period of time, the Industry has been observing that CA’s, although very knowledgeable are unable to apply what he/she has learnt. Therefore, in order to train the students to apply the theory into practice, the Board of Studies has brought out Practice Manuals which contain series of Questions in respect of various topics covered in the study material.
The Questions have been arranged in a manner whereby one may develop understanding, commencing from a simple topic to a more complex one. With a view to making practice manuals – a single source of reference, important definitions and formulae have been given at the beginning of each chapter. This would enable CA IPCC and CA Final students to straightaway do the practice of various questions given in the manual.
