Create A Study Plan For Yourself:

Prepare Short Notes for Revision:

Focus On Basic Concepts:

Getting fundamentals and basics right is one of the key factors to focus at the time of exam preparation. If you have a good command on your basics, then learning other things will not be a task for you. Therefore, focus more on fundamentals and basics while studying any topic.
