How to prepare

Preparation Strategy

Make a proper Time Table
It is very important that you make a time table and stick to it and you will have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it.

Concept clarity rather than rote learning
It is essential that you have a clear idea of the formulas and concepts rather than rote  learning of things for the papers. While you might require it for memorizing formulas it is  important that for other stuff you make sure you clear your basics and concepts before moving on.

Prepare Notes
It is very important make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each covered topic and chapter which will come in handy at the time of revision. This will require you to be regular with your work but will surely make things easy at the time of revision.

Revision of Class XI and XII basic concepts
Make sure that you revise the basic concepts from the syllabus of these classes before starting anything new as most of the engineering exams will be for admission to undergraduate courses and so the syllabi from class XI and XII becomes the testing ground to check students.

Seek guidance
It is not possible for you to know everything in your syllabus, at least not at the time of  preparation. Sooner or later you will run into a concept or so which will give you trouble and then  it is best you seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher. It is necessary that you clear your  doubts at regular intervals and don’t prolong things for long. Getting into a good coaching class  is nothing to be ashamed off and if anything a regular coaching class will enable you to avoid roadblocks in your preparation.

Sample Papers
Even though there may be a complete   change in the exam pattern or the expected questions  altogether, it is important that you practice on the sample and previous years question papers available for the engineering exam you’d be attempting. You will know the existing pattern and  have a fair idea of the type of questions to expect in the paper along with the time constraint.

Mock tests
The paper pattern, duration of the paper and the number of questions to be attempted in the given amount of time is not something you will be able to pick up on the day of the examination. A Mock Test tests a student’s abilities as it not only provides a similar feel of real exams but  also helps in building  speed and confident to face the exam. Furthermore, they can improve  their performance to get an extra edge in actual exams. Try to build up an Engineering Entrance Exam Test Prep MCQ Question Bank .

Time management
Time management can be learnt through thorough practice and regular test taking. So it is  important that you practice it and practice it well.

Negative marking
Most the entrance examinations will have negative marking and everyone would suggest you  stay clear of questions are not sure about. But some experts are of the opinion that you answer  the questions in which you are confused between an option or two because there will also be a  chance of getting it right.
