SSC CGL Math Strategy 2017
Competitive exams are meant for realmen and women. There is no competition for crybabies, kids and for college teens. So first of all, you must get rid of the following “loser” mindsets:
 Yaar this maths is so hard, I can’t do it.
 I’m not from science/engineering background hence this is not my cup of tea.
 I’m poor in maths and I cannot improve.
 Thik hai, dekh lenge. (alright, I’ll see).
 I’m from science/engineering background so Math toh dekh lenge.
Maths is not difficult. All it requires is concept clarity + lot of practice. In SSCCGL exam, you’ve to face Mathematics at two stages.

Pillars  How ? 

1. Conceptual clarity 

2. Lot of practice 

Getting the conceptual clarity
 We’ll divide Quantitative Aptitude, into topics and further into their types.
 Divide every chapter into types that comes in exam and note all type in notebook.
 Firstly cover one topic at one time, then get conceptualclarity and then solve maximum questions of different types.
 Whenever you learn any shortcut technique, you note it down in your diary and practice same type of questions.

#2: Practice
 Merely knowing the concepts or formulas won’t help. Because unless you practice different variety of questions, you won’t become proficient in applying those concepts flawlessly in the actualexam.
 Second, despite knowing concept and formulas, people make silly mistakes either in calculation or in plugging the values.
 Third reason Tier I has 100 questions in 60 limits. = 1.6 minutes per question. Plus, questions reasoning and comprehension might take more than 2 minutes! Therefore speed is essential. Since there is negative marking system, accuracy also matters.
 Practice all previous questions that came in SSC.
 Don thinks I did all many questions and I am Aryabhata now.
 So it is beyond doubt that you have to practice excimer number of questions at home.
 The question is where to get the practice? Which book should be used for SSC exam?
