Fat books don't add feather to your hat
It is a common practice to buy bulky books that contain a volley of information with the intent of reading more. But this is a blunder as it would only jam your mind and make you feel tired. Purchase easy to read books and mark the answers in breakable points so that you can remember it easily.
Opt for legible text that would take you easily through the pages than cramped text that is filled in volumes of books.
Addition is subtraction
Do not study new topics in the last minute, as it will not stay in your head longer. It will make you forget what you have already studied. Your preparation round the year is a collective effort that needs to be effectively used. So revise what you have already gone through and thorough yourself in the subject. Be confident of what you have learnt and write it clearly.
Keep map at your finger tips
Be well versed in the map of India and the world map. This is a sure shot question in the Geography section and it is a very important question when it comes to testing your General Knowledge. So don't miss out on that.
Anxiety is paltry
As time nears, it is natural to feel the anxiety building. But that should not pull your marks down. Getting tensed will only exacerbate the situation and do no good. So stay calm and don't let the fears eat you up. Have faith that what you prepare will help you do the exam well and give your best shot.
