How should I prepare for the quantitative aptitude section?
N
nitin yaduvanshi

Clear your basics completely, do not feel ashamed to go back to high school textbooks. This section requires a lot of practise, so make sure you solve sums regularly without fail. Work on speed and accuracy. While solving mock tests, start with easy questions and then solve the harder questions. Prepare while focusing on the harder questions and making them easier to solve. Prepare DAILY, without fail. Write down all the important formulae and put in on a wall you see daily like above your study table or your wallpaper. You will passively memorise all the formulae. Learn shortcuts and vedic maths to solve quickly.
