There is not one correct way to prepare for one of the toughest entrance of the world. Still our experts have come up with some generalized road map.
1. Self Assessment Be honest and do some self assessment of yourself. There are some mock tests available all over the web. Take one of them and get your approximate percentile result for all the sections.
You need a guide, of course. After self assessment you will need a guide. If you are already around 95 %ile marks you may not need one. But if you are not one of those we suggest you taking classes.
3. Preparing with Books
Till now the best book available in the market is Arun Sharma. Go through each chapter .Learn them properly just don’t solve questions. Learn what those questions mean.
4. Mock Series
Try taking mock test series using different test provider once you have finished preparing for the exam. These exams usually starts before three months of CAT.
5. Revising From the very fast day of preparation have a register of what have you answered wrong and try to find out if there is any repeated mistake you have made. Try rectifying them as much as you can. Make sure you cover up 90% of your weakness.
6. No mistakes in Quant No matter what yo do don’t guess Quant answers. It is the most competitive part of the exam and ake sure you don’t fall prey to the negative marking scheme. Always practice hard and make sure you attempt something only if you are 100% sure
7. Logical reasoning
Use method of elimination for logical reasoning answers. Method of eliination is one of the fastest and most secure way of getting good marks in logical reasoning
