10 things to do now for CAT 2014-
1- Make a study plan long term for the 6 months (given in video above) and Short term (this month plan)
2- Focus on Quant – Start working on easy and tough parts of quant at the same time.
3- Cetking Books – phase 1 and 2 for CAT
4- Focus on Verbal main topic RC – If you find RC as your weak area, I would recommend reading ‘How to Read Faster and Better’ by Norman Lewis. (This is available at Amazon).
5- Online forums- CAT dream team-https://www.facebook.com/groups/CATdreamteam/
6- It is best to maintain a journal. Keeps a track of what you did and what you need to do.
7- Luckily the time frame available is good enough so 2-3 hours every week day an 3-4 hour week end and any day off serves as the best study plan.
8- Sleep – Nothing can compensate for your sleep. 7-8 hour sleep a day is a must.
9- The best place to be updated is to check blogs or forums and know how others are preparing.
10- Have a reliable preparation source.
