One should start preparing for this exam from the month of Nov- Dec so that you could sufficient time to practice and build on your concepts. Since a lot of you who would be preparing for this exam would not be from a finance background, the earlier you start the better grip you would have over the subject.

Additionally you need to prepare for both Prelims and Mains together as the gap between the two exams is just 15 days.
