Try to prepare in a holistic manner and cover all the aspects.  Not covering the numerical aspect of the exam syllabus can significantly impact your rank. Being overconfident in your ability is a huge mistake. If you have covered the entire syllabus, then try to solve last year’s question papers and sample papers to check your progress.  Blindly reading reference books like Lachman, Goodman, etc without understanding them is the most common mistake. Also, avoid making certain books like Pearson or Inamdar, your main reference material. Not making notes is another common mistake.

The best way to prepare for the GPAT exam is to avoid these common mistakes and to study all the given topics. Keep practicing and solving question papers frequently to overcome the time limitations during the examination.Read more
