plzz help me guys & let me know . .am in great confusion

Hey Hi everyone...

All the aspirants who have recently started their prep here are few things to be kept in mind
1. Make schedule until that you need to complete your given topics..
2. After that date don't go for new topics
3. study only those topics which are having high weightage for cat like numbers , geometry,algebra etc
4.improve your accuracy rather than attempts.
5.Analyse each and every test very carefully and improve your accuracy
6.revise the topics repeatedly.

i hope if you keep these things in your mind then there would be no time constrains
buckle up and start the marathon..
all the best..
