Preparation Tips for Logical Reasoning Section of SET 2022

Tip 1: Understand the Basics Well

To solve a logical reasoning question based on topics such as blood relations, directions, syllogisms, coding, etc. you need to be well versed with the fundamental concepts and patterns. It helps you in solving most of the questions in no time. Having a strong grip on the basics is a must as it helps in deducing the correct answer.

Tip 2: Have a Game Plan

Every individual has his own game plan to solve the logical reasoning questions of SET. One needs to identify what he/she does the best. Figure out a game plan beforehand. For instance, you might start each question by going through the image and reading the information first instead of checking out the answer in the multiple-choice options. Some might find the other way easy. Make note of what suits you the best and play with your strengths.

Tip 3: Practice Makes Perfect

Solving as many questions as possible provides an idea of the type of questions that might crop up in the exam. Practice regularly and be consistent with the concepts. Do not dodge the difficult questions. The more a candidate will practice, the better he/she is likely to understand the questions.

Tip 4: Manage Your Time

Since the SET exam needs to be completed in a limited time period, learn the art of time management and utilize it wisely. Speed and accuracy are the keys. Do not spend too much time solving difficult questions. Keep them for the end so that you do not miss out on marks on the easy ones.

Tip 5: Solve Sample Problems

Sitting for mock tests and solving last year’s question papers provide a better understanding of the logical reasoning questions. An individual gets an idea of the type and nature of questions that might come in the exam. Solving sample problems regularly also helps in building up the exam stamina and confidence which might help in elevating the performance in the SET 2022 Result.

Tip 6: Read Question Carefully

All the information you require to get to the correct answer is provided in the questions. Read each word and sentence carefully and clearly. Understand and highlight the important information. It helps in reaching the correct answer sooner.

Tip 7: Learn Techniques

Acing the shortcuts and techniques is one of the most effective ways to save time and be more efficient. Master as many shortcuts as possible. Practice them by solving a lot of questions. They might come in handy during the exam and might save you a lot of time in the end for revision.

Tip 8: Evaluate & Modify

As you solve the sample papers, keep evaluating your performance time and again. Make a note of your weak and strong areas. Keep modifying your game plan and devote more time to the weak concepts. Turn them into your strengths.
