Revision makes a big difference in scoring good marks. So the subjects like cost and fm you must revise as much as you can. Minimum 3 times revision is required for this subjects. If you do at least 4 to 5 times revision before your examination then that would be the best.

Books to be Refered

Many of the students are confused about books that which book to choose for this to be referred but I would suggest that if you use ICAI Material that would be the best but apart from that if you want to use some more books then don’t take any extra book more than 1 book for each subject otherwise you will waste your time in searching and comparing books rather than studying.
