Tips to Prepare for SNAP A-LR Section 2021

Some important steps for the preparation of SNAP Analytical and Logical Reasoning section have been given below. All test-takers planning to give SNAP must go through these points and include them in their SNAP 2021 preparation.

  • The difficulty level of the Analytical and Logical Reasoning section of SNAP is usually easy to moderate. However, without enough practice and proper preparation, this section can prove to be easy.
  • Before formulating a preparation plan for SNAP A-LR, it is mandatory to know the syllabus asked in the section. Go through the SNAP 2021 syllabus and understand all the topics that are asked.
  • Depending upon the number of days left for the exam, divide the topics equally and make a time-table. Stick to the schedule and be consistent with your preparation.
  • Solve as many questions as possible. Use SNAP previous years' question papers and the mock tests of SNAP to understand the exam pattern and types of questions asked.
  • Practise all the questions in several attempts. In the first few attempts, try to understand the questions and in the later attempts, focus on speed and accuracy.
  • Ensure that you time yourself while preparing for the Analytical and Logical Reasoning section of SNAP. Manage your time in such a way that you solve all the questions within the allotted duration.
  • Practising questions and papers over a long period of time will also help you discover tricks and shortcuts that you can apply in the exam for solving the puzzles faster.
  • Once you are done solving a SNAP sample paper or mock test, evaluate your performance and work on the questions that you answered wrong. Look for explanations as to why a particular option is correct and the rest are incorrect.
  • Not all LR questions are the same, hence you will not be able to apply the same reasoning trick or shortcut on the different questions. Learn to identify different types of questions in order to know which method to use in a particular question.
  • While appearing for the exam, read the questions carefully, simplify the data, approach the sequence in the question systematically and draw diagrams to understand the question better, if needed.
  • Read the questions carefully so that you do not miss out any important information or data.
