2.Those who were on/off but from the past few months have really gathered pace
3.Those who have only now realized that they would be facing boards soon so half-heartedly but finally they have taken refuse to books as 12th boards are just at the doorstep

- Don’t cry over spilt milk right now! : However hardly you curse yourself, truth is that April 2011 would not be here again. You need to make your March 2012 better on your own. Take a lesson from the past but feel the guilt only later. Right now is the time to act not to repent.

Those topics will add upto a major chunk and if you prepare them well, you have a real chance of sailing through. Topics, which carry maximum weightage, may be conceptually a little or a lot tough. Here you need to decide wisely that one topic with huge weightage requiring a lot of efforts and time or four five simple topics carrying equally important weightage albeit together.Actually it looks tough but to study for 12th boards, a sound strategy can work wonders.
- Refer simple sources over in-depth ones: Okay so we need to explain you this one in a little more detail.

So our advice to you would be choose an NCERT over RD Sharma of Maths and likewise one book on Accountancy would be sufficient but do the respective topics carefully. It is not easy to refer alternate resources to prepare at your age but trust me if you look for other books which are a little simpler but have the same conceptual framework, you will end up saving time and will manage to score.
