@vandana,

Go for scheweser 2012. After every topic do the quiz on that topic posted in quiz section of pristine resources. I think that is one of the best strategy. It paid me good return in my attempt.

@ Vandana frankly speaking vandana go for GARP readings becoz the questions which will be asked in the exams are not that simple. i am not saying that Kaplan is bad but it wont serve the need for GARP questions. if u pick up the kaplan schweser it will give fair idea that it is pretty easy and u will miss huge concepts....

like this....

A bank develops a new 99% confidence value at risk (VaR) model. Assume there is a 50% chance the model is good and a 50% chance the model is bad (bad = not good). A good 99% VaR model produces an exception (a loss in excess of VaR) 1% of the time. The bad VaR model will produce an exception 3% of the time. If we observe an exception, what is the probability the model is good?
a) 1.0%
b) 25.0%
c) 50.0%
d) 66.7%

it looks like a question of VaR ...
this kind of difficulty wont be catered by kaplan...
so do the needful.
u can also search on the pristine forum that everybody is saying kaplan is not useful....
