Record: When preparing for the exam it is always recommended to note down the important points and highlight the formulas. So that when you need to go through a particular concept again you don't have to go through the whole book. This will be helpful for those who prepare in a very short period.

Time Yourself: It is good to be time conscious so that you will be able to complete the question paper within the stipulated time.

Take Multiple CAT Exam Mock TestsTaking CAT Mock tests will not only help you in identifying your weak areas and determining your speed and accuracy but will also familiarize and prepare you for the online CAT Exam environment. You can make use of many CAT mock test series online.
