Expert Advice –

As the Entrance exam is approaching and days are counted, focusing on your positive strengths at this moment is very important. The book you are referring to is good and your preparation of math from your boards will also come in handy.

Few tips which will help you at this moment:

Plan & Strategize: Start each day with 10 minutes spent on planning what to do in the coming days.

Focus on Strengths:Your strengths are going to pay you high, so if you have identified the topics which are your strengths, attempt as many questions out of these topics. Focus on Maths by solving past papers, at the same time attempt questions from aptitude section as well and brush up your drawing skills each day. Before the exam Understand the past exam trends and focus on the time accordingly. Solve past papers to improve your speed and accuracy.

You can attempt mock test to have sufficient practice. JEE Main Paper 2 is for admissions to the B.Arch or B.Planning courses at the NITS and the centrally funded institutes as well as the self-financed institutes participating in the JEE system.
