Quantitative Aptitude Preparation Strategy

Preparing for Quant seems like such a dauting task. Doesnâ€™t it? So many formulae to remember. Such a vast syllabus.

As a result, people start developing phobia towards Maths. They develop a notion â€“ MATHS IS HARD! It is hard because we run in blindfold, in dark, towards an unknown destination without a structure!!!

FIRST: Start from the basics. Always! Spend less time if you are comfortable. Donâ€™t be afraid of making mistakes. Just, donâ€™t repeat the same mistakes again. Learn from them.

SECOND: When you get doubts, discuss them with your peers, faculties, ANYBODY.

THIRD: Make copious notes of all the things you learn.

FOURTH: Follow a proper approach Theory + Solved question + Notes Unsolved questions Topic Wise Tests Sectional Tests Mocks

FIFTH: Prioritise more important topics like HCF / LCM, Arithmetic, Triangles etc.

SIXTH: Make a time schedule for yourselves with regular targets and Deadlines.

FINALLY: Donâ€™t get demoralised if you are not able to solve a tough question. Solving a tough question builds your concepts nicely but not mandatory if you can attempt all of the others near perfectly.
