All u need to do is dat u need to be fast in ur calculations. Here time plays
a crucial role. Every question is very easy,u hv to maitain ur time correctly...
My suggestion is to start from reasoning,quant followed by english, generally
reasoning and quant takes much more time compared to english.so give least time
to English and u know English section is very very easy jst basic grammer..In
reasoning section u may encounter questions on blood relations,analogies in
alphabets(dfh:ikm::adg:?),numerical series etc..refer R.S agarwal verbal and non
verbal reasoning. In Quant section u'l see questions on mostly allegation and
mixture,clocks,SI and CI,time and work,time and distance,problems on
train,partnership problems.refer R.S agarwal quantitative aptitude… it is more
enough… questions are very easy.
English is very easy u can give less time to this section. In english-1
u'l see synonyms,antonyms english-2 general grammer refer Wren & martin.
english-3 Two simple reading comprehention of 10th and intermediate standard.
My panel has two members they are really very kewl.They are very friendly
