Hi anothermortal, as i m nt a CA yet so was nt allowed to give my suggestions in here.
First u got to be clear with ur plans.
Regardin ICAEW, I hav no idea how the situation xactly is, and there was a frightening post on that topic also (perhaps u too hav gone through).
I hav talked much bout beginin with CA or ACCA at various places mite b a bit of help for u there.

I think wht you want to ask is how to study to successfully complete ca.

for this, just study & study & study & study for hours 8-10 hours atleast daily.

especially after mod d , you will do articleship, work for horribly long hours with almost non existant salary & then study too!!! study & study & sutdy more hard then you had ever till mod d. things will get more horrible when you reach the last module

if you dont practice & study up to the toppest mark in any subject, then you will simply fail that subject
a chartered accountant at an islamabad firm advised me to forget everything, your family & even yourself for 6 years then you will do it... things would be much better in the start but when you get further, everything will become horrible...

I am afraid that usman is right to some extent, although the things are not as horrible as mentioned.

Anothermortal a student with 3 or 4 years experience of all this is enuff to answer such questions.
Passing % of ACCA is much better than that of CA
