    my friend,
    CA CPT is the common proficiency test for CA course.
    you want to prepare it.first of that you have to know the sylllabus for that exam.in that exam there is fundamental account,mercantile law,aptitude,general economics are included.
    so for all it,you have to read text book.R S agrawal is the best for aptitude.
    then for other subject you have to read text book.then you have to prepare the book for entrance exam so that your idea wiil become clear perfectly.
    best of luck......
