Brief about Sanat’s Preparation journey
Hello everyone, I am Sanat and I am from a small village in Hooghly District, West Bengal. I have completed my B.Tech in Electronics & Communications in 2013. After completing my B.Tech, I joined a private job in Kolkata and started working there.
After joining the private sector and working there for a while, I realized that I was not meant to be there. Life seemed too monotonous and there was nothing exciting about my work. I knew that it was high time and I need to take some decisions about my career. After doing enough of research around the same, I decided to prepare for SSC & Railways Exams. Initially I started preparing for such competitive exams along with my job but it was almost impossible to justify both of them at the same time. So I decided to quit my job and prepare for SSC & Railways exams with full dedication.
To be honest it was a complete new area for me but still I preferred preparing by myself. I did refer few books initially to clear all my doubts and then practiced a lot from Oliveboard mock tests.
My Preparation Strategy:
Quants: I started with clearing my basics and practiced a lot from R.S.Agarwal and Arihant. Please avoid referring too many books at one time. Stick to one or two books and proceed with them for your complete preparation.
Reasoning: For reasoning also I referred R.S Agarwal books and practiced 2 to 3 puzzles daily. Practice is the main and only strategy for this section.
English: Make sure you clear your grammar basics and read some editorials regularly. I know many aspirants face difficulties to score well in this section and to be honest even I faced issues with English. Initially I used to score very low in this section but then I accordingly devised my preparation strategy. It’s always important to figure out your weak areas after each mock test and then leave no stone unturned to master them.
Role Of Oliveboard
I did not go to any of the coaching centers and prepared completely by myself. Initially I did not know whether or not my preparation was going in the right direction but then Oliveboard mock tests helped me immensely to prepare myself in the right direction.
Tips to Aspirants
Always keep your hope alive and keep believing in yourself. Remember the path to success is never easy and it’s your willpower & dedication that makes everything fall in place.
