Why refer to other books?

One important thing that is clear to a commerce student is that all the subjects that one studies as a student of commerce are more or less concerned with reproducing the content in the book onto the paper in the exam. However, one should also be aware that all these theoretical subjects have practical applications in our daily life. So, to get a better hang of the correlation between the theory and the application and the way these theories are deduced from practicality, one should have wide knowledge and be open to a lot of ideas and perspectives. 

Keep in mind!

  • It is to be borne in mind that reference books provide additional knowledge and aid in more practice to train the mind for exam. So, never stick to reference books alone. Always be thorough with your NCERT books, solve all the questions that these books contain. Use the reference books for reference.
  • Solve previous year papers, solve the various sample papers available for each course. Sample Papers makes you exam ready as it will be easier for you to cover the syllabus before the exam when you have tight time schedules.
  • Apart from all of this, one main key to success as we all know is hard work coupled with smart planning. Stay determined, plan your time wisely, ensure your basics are perfect and make the best use of all the resources available in the form of reference books.
