Few last tips :
- Lay a time table : After looking at the syllabus it will not be an onerous task to understand that you have a huge syllabus to be covered in very less time. But lesser time doesn’t mean the target is not achievable. It can be attained by proper planning which involves first to set a time table for yourself as per your convenience.

- Make sure you take up important topics first. And as soon as a topic is complete, revise it instantly.
- For a daily plan: minimum 5-6 hours should be kept aside every day for studying along with an extra hour for revision.
- At the end of the day revise whatever you have studied throughout the day
- Depending on what type of person you are you can divide the day accordingly. For morning people it is best to learn the subject in the morning and practice and revise in the evening. Whereas for evening person, another way round can be done
- Do not forget to keep space in the plan for practicing questions every day
- Once in a week, you can take up some test of the topics you have studied like YB study offers.
- Following the layout of the time table, you should start studying. Whenever you sit down to study, make it a habit to make short notes side by side. This helps in a lot of ways. First, it will help in making the learning and memorizing process quicker as writing things down makes our mind to remember things more.
