Tips to crack CET

Focus more on Quant and DI preparations Around 1/4 of the CET paper is covered with Quant and DI i.e around 45-50 marks. You must solve these problems with perfect accuracy.

Permutation / Combination / Probability:

You have to mug up events, arrangements, and concepts of selection. Always a clear difference between probability is no of ways and permutation is arrangements. In probability: in how many ways the event occurs. Eg: Spinning a coin has 2 possible outcomes Head H or Tail T. Possibility of the head is 1/2 In Permutation/Computation: in how many ways the event is arranged. Eg: 3 letters ABC n=3 …. so the formula is n! i.e 6 ABC,ACB,BAC, BCA,CAB,CBA Also read: CET Preparation

BODMAS and approximation questions:

You must mug up all the square roots up to 30 and cube root up to 20. Learn tables up to 30 to speed the calculations. You must know the fractions i.e 1/4th of the number and percentages. The approximations-based questions can be solved verbally instead of using paper and pencil.

7 + (6 × 52 + 3) such questions have to be solved verbally like 343 is the cube of 7

Time /Speed / Work/ Distance:

Questions are simple and generally in relative speeds, races, number of days, and time is taken to complete the work. You need to be very fast with such questions. Practice quants with actual CET Mocks

Clocks and calendars:

You must know some concepts that the clock always has 360 degrees. So 1 minute makes 360/60 i.e 6 degrees. About Calendars, you must know the leap year calculations and general rules about days recognition like "divisibility by 7". Eg: Yesterday was 4 Jan 2012 which was Tuesday so what day will be on 26 Jan 2012 the difference between 26 and 4 is 22 so divide it by 7 so the remainder is 1 so add 1 in 4 so it's Wednesday.

Venn - Diagrams

Formulas like: n(AuB) and n(AuBuc) are sufficient to solve the problems.

Data interpretation

You must make your calculation part very strong. Use approximate values where there is a big difference in numbers. Make your percentage logic strong as there are a number of questions based on percentages. There are problems like the percentage increase? Always use a formula like (200 – 100 / 100) * 100 to calculate the percentage increase. There are basically a bar, line, and pie charts come in exams and mostly given productions/earnings/output versus years. Prepare for CET with basic quants preparation

Tips to crack NMAT

  1. Clear all the concepts, fundamentals, formulas, etc beforehand. The important topic should not be kept for the last moment. Last moment preparation always creates confusion. 2. Try to solve as many mock tests, online tests, sample papers, previous year question papers as you can manage. Spend at least 2-3 hours solving problems related to all important topics. 3. While appearing for any mock/online tests, never put a habit of using calculators as this may decrease your speed in solving questions. 4. Learn the shortcut methods to solve tricky questions. 5. Always avoid making random guesses. Learn to manage your time properly. Don't waste too much time on one particular question. It is advisable to solve easy and medium-level questions first as these questions can save some extra time for difficult-level questions.
