It is generally seen that a CPT student faces oodles of difficulties while going through the ICAI study material. This happens because of its typical language and cumbersome presentation.  So many students got scared seeing the size of the ICAI material.


However, VSI material has been prepared by experienced mentors keeping in mind the level of students as the language is simple and understandable and pictorial presentation. Revise the whole syllabus from the VSI compilers in a very short duration. Don’t waste your time in solving the repetitive questions from the ICAI study material and practice manual. Compilers are prepared in such a way that they cover each and every type of question from the ICAI study material and practice manual along with the past attempt questions.


In the past six years VSI has given three AIR - 1. Each and every student can hold a rank if he is fully devoted towards his goal. VSI focuses not only on clearing this exam but also holding a rank. This could get possible only through the dedicated teachers of VSI.
