30 Day Study Plan for CDS Exam General Knowledge Paper

30 Days Marathon Study Plan to Crack General Knowledge Paper of CDS Exam

Important Points to remember:

  1. Every day you have to go through Current Affairs (including Defence) without fail.
  2. Remember, here, the number of hours include all kinds of preparation. Not just reading but also solving and practicing few sets of questions in it too.
  3. Avoid large numerical problems. Restrict yourself for basic information and complete conceptual analysis. However, formulae are all absolutely important.
  4. Once a topic is done, do keep sets of copies of all of the preparatory notes at a separate place. Once every six days, gift yourself some free time if you think you really worked hard.
  5. Use NCERT books and SSBCrack Books as your reference to cover the main things. Remember, do not stress yourself. Keep interest.
  6. No matter how much ever prepared you are, make sure you solve 5 Mock Tests before exam. No pain. No gain.

      Thank you so much. Can you please mention what CCSM stands for? PYQA denotes Previous Years' Questions & Answers, I guess.
