  1. The list of books provided for the respective course should be very useful for the youngsters who are preparing for these professional examination. As a Chartered Accountant who qualified in 1983, I really admire sites like this one which provide very useful information, which was not there when we studied the professional course. Keep it up.

10,000+ students realised their study abroad dream with us. Take the first step today.
