A common perception about this paper is that its too filled with theory and memorisation. It is a challenge for sure. But trust me the approach to the subject makes things easier and you may end up not needing the pneumonics for most topics.

Since the first five units of Regulation are related to Tax what helped me the most is by trying to fit into the situation and analysing the circumstances from the viewpoint of the taxpayer and the authority thereby understanding it better. And of course with Dhanashree ma’am to guide us through with practical knowledge made it easy to relate.
After getting an insight of the topic make sure to write down the summaries of each topic in a manner that you don’t spend more time when you revise before the exam. I would suggest making your own summaries in your own handwriting since what we write definitely lasts longer in the memory.
Once done with one unit take time to revise it before jumping into the next one. Keep taking progress tests..
The last three units are various law and ethics making it primarily theory. Doing as many Becker Mcq s as possible helped me during the exam since i needed less time for the theory question and could comfortably complete the first two testiest in time.
The constant support from the faculty and support staff at Simandhar Education at every step by conducting mock tests and clearing doubts was surely an advantage.
My personal tip for this paper would be that do not leave any content be it tax or law. If time is insufficient at least go through the skill practice summary. ‘When the WHY is clear.. the HOW is Easy’ - so hit at the concepts and you are sure to ace it.
