Try to bring the maximum out of you. You must think that CA course is not too big to hit but too big to miss. Please go through the below story.

There was a giant who was bullying and harassing the children in the village. 
One day, a 17-year-old shepherd boy came to visit his brothers and asked, "Why don't you stand up and fight the giant?" 
The brothers were terrified and they replied, "Don't you see he is too big to hit?" 
But David said, "No, he is Not too big to hit, he is too big to miss." 
The rest is history. We all know what happened. David killed the giant with a sling. Same giant, different perception.

While setting the goals, please pay the attention of time available for your exam.

Some students write exam merely because the first attempt is due within the period of 10 months. As indicated above, the course is challenging so that the goal setting shall be taken in to effect this factors.

A wrong set of goal has the ultimate effect of failure. At the time of setting the goal, the students were ignoring about the depth and scope of the subject.

But you can get an overview of the entire subject at the time of start studies. If there is the senior, what is the wrong for enquiring about the subject?

In short, If you want to soar like an eagle, you have to learn the ways of an eagle. If you associate with achievers, you will become one. If you associate with thinkers, you will become one. If you associate with givers, you will become one. If you associate with complainers, you will become one.
