MAH MBA CET 2022 Quantitative Aptitude: How to Prepare?

  1. Comprehend the fundamental topics: It is crucial to building a strong foundation in Mathematics by digging deep into various topics and trying to comprehend the concepts. Candidates must find reliable books and follow the methods of the solution suggested by them. NCERT Mathematics books of Class 9 and 10 serve as the best sources in this regard. They should first get a good grasp on the basics of Quantitative Aptitude before trying their hands at solving questions. However, only theoretical knowledge would not suffice and the candidates are required to learn the application of formulae efficiently. 
  2. Repeated Practice: Rigorous practice and revision are the keys to qualifying for the Quantitative Aptitude section of the exam. Practice enhances the speed and accuracy of the candidates and enables them to solve more questions correctly within a given time. 
  3. Solve Mock Tests: Candidates must solve plenty of MAH CET sample papers, mock tests, and practice questions to gain firsthand experience of taking the MAH MBA CET 2022 exam.
