Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams
Hello Friends, If you have a dream to get “Government Job” “Sarkari Naukri” then you know well Maths is an important subject and may play deciding role in your selection but it is a million-dollar question How to Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams with minimum time and minimum efforts with maximum output.
Let’s learn how to start Maths preparation properly.
Friends if you have no math background and you never studied maths after 10th class and you want to kick start your maths for the competitive exam then, you must follow these steps…….
Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams Step 1
Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams or “Government Job” “Sarkari Naukri” Just start with three simple exercises are called Basic 1, Basic 2 and Basic 3.
You have to start to understand the terms of number class. You must know the difference between the numbers and its class such as “Prime Number, Real Number, Even Number, Odd Number, Natural Number, Wholes Number, Integers, Rational or Irrationals Number and Complex Numbers“. If you able to understand the difference between these number system then your ability to solve questions becomes more efficient
After completing Basic 1 then now start Basic 2. To prepare basic 2 you must learn some auxiliary topic such as tables, Squire, Squire root, Cube and Cube root but we should know the limit. Let’s have a brief discussion of limitation.
Tables:- If you know tables well it helps you to improve your speed and accuracy in competitive exams, but there is a question
How many tables do I know to improve speed and accuracy?
So the answer is “it is compulsory, You must know minimum 2 to 25 and maximum 2 to 30”
Ha!! Now you have the answer so start learning table and don’t waste your time writing table
Either It is a polite request or warning whatever you think but “Do not waste your time to learn the trick for tables” because in exam hall you do not have time to apply table trick so just follow the traditional way as you have done in school. Believe in you and your learning ability you can do it. It is just 2 to 30, not 300 or 3000 or 30000 tables. So fasten your belt and start learning…….
What Next or What should do along with learning Tables?
Along with learning tables for saving time and multitask your learning you should learn how to understand or identify the relation or co-relation between numbers or a series of numbers. You know well it is time taking job in exams and there is no set pattern so you have to run your mind in many directions and find out a relevant relation between numbers to get the correct answer. If there is no set pattern or formula to get the answer, A question arises in each student mind how can I find out the rational answer in minimum time. To identify the relation or co-relation between numbers or a series of numbers you should learn Squire, Squire root, Cube and Cube root.
How many Squire, Squire root, Cube and Cube root should any student know?
Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams, you must know at least 2 to 30 squares must be memorized. If you learn square numbers properly then your ability to understand the pattern or relation between two number and more than two numbers improves. You will find your speed of solving questions become faster than normal. Now the topic is either It is mathematics or reasoning.
Squire root:-You should remember at least 1 to 30 square root. You are well aware that it can take time to solve questions based on the square root. if you use a trick to solve any square root based simple question. Perhaps you can still make a mistake and lose points if you do not train yourself properly. You should remember the square root of at least 1 to 30 with constant practice to avoid common mistakes.
So if you do not apply trick “only 1 to 30” and learn them properly then your ability to understand pattern and relation between two number and more than two numbers and the series of numbers mostly in Reasoning. You will find your speed become faster either is it math or reasoning.
Cube:– At least 2 to 30. You must know at least 2 to 30 cubes properly without applying any trick because it is most probable you forget the trick and may choose a wrong answer.
Cube root: – You have to remember at least 2 to 30 cube root. Cube root is the weakest part of any student’s mathematics and it is bad news for every student that the examiner knows it well. Examiner deliberately designs some questions based on cube root. Its purpose behind this is to know about the mental knowledge of any candidate on the cube root or has the candidate overcome that weakness?
It is my humble request, Do not underestimate this part otherwise, you waste your most precious efforts and everything goes in vain. Your ability to understand cube root, number system and number series patterns make you more efficient in learning.
Note:- Using tricks to find the square root, cube, and cube root of a number above 30 is effective for saving time.
Now after learning Basic 2 then follow Basic 3
Calculation time:- Calculation is the most important, sensitive and vulnerable part of any math question. 90% Questions of math go wrong the cause of miscalculation. In the exam hall, you are allowed less than a second to solve a question in that case time is too important. if you are too slow in calculation then either you will not pass any exam or get negative marks or always get low marks. Calculation always impacts accuracy and accuracy and speed both contradict each other. You know well you need both at the time of exams. Achieving both is not a big deal but it needs practice, practice and more practice.
How can we achieve both speed and accuracy in math?
Accuracy and Speed both contradict each other but both are achievable. We are going to show you some tips if we do practice according to our tips and follow the given method you will achieve both speed and accuracy.
Firstly in the initial stages of your preparation, first of all, you have to focus at only and the only accuracy not at the time. It is just like learning a bicycle, during the initial stages of learning a bicycle, we focus on balance rather than speed.
Achieving balance on a bicycle and learning to ride it properly depends on your maximum practice and time investment. This means that if I invest 1 hour for learning bicycle daily, then it is possible, I will take more time to learn bicycle but if I invest 2 hours or 3 hours or more than 3 hours my chances of learning bicycle are increasing. It is a rather simple concept. Investing more time in practice leads to greater accuracy. Apply this to your practice. Invest time properly in your practice. Take time to calculate and just focus on the correct answer and do not notice how long you are taking to solve a question.
If you have solved 700 to 800 calculation based questions with 80% accuracy. Now you will feel that your mind is running faster than before and it is taking a few seconds to calculate any question. You will feel that you have got enough speed to solve any question.
Caution: – Do not leave practice after 200 or 300 questions. To achieve error-free calculation you should practice at least 700 calculation based questions.
One more important point is that you must choose relevant questions while doing the practice. Questions should be written in the same manner as if it were written in the exam paper.
Now you have those tips which you can use in practice to speed up your calculation speed. Build a stronghold on basic calculations such as Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division and most important BODMAS
The practice of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division is not to choose questions written from the conventional. As you know, at school, one number was added, subtracted, multiplied, divided by writing the second number under one. But now it is not the time of school nor are you going to take the school exam. In competition examination, the calculation based questions are written in vertical order like “4265+2488+7596 = 14349”. You need to keep this in mind, the practice of choosing the wrong question and wrong way is the biggest obstacle in your success. If you want success, then you must first change the way you practice.
Multiple series calculation makes a student confuse in that condition BODMAS guides a student the correct sequence of solving multiple calculations.
BODMAS rules are used in the following steps
“Brackets (….) → Order (√ after x2 )→ Division (÷ ) → Multiplication (x)→ Addition (+) →Subtraction (-)“
If Basic 1, Basic 2 and Basic 3 are completed and if your calculation speed is average or above average, then what next ….…….?
Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams Step-2
Every step taken is important for the preparation of a government job. A step taken without knowledge is just a waste of time. Now the next step you have to take is that …………
You have to focus on your exams like “Bank, UPSC, SSC, Services of States” and collect the syllabus and previous year paper and spend some time research and analysis on that syllabus and previous year paper. With this, you can plan your study strategy.
Syllabus:- Syllabus gives you the list of chapters that you have to learn for preparing your exams.
Previous year paper:- Previous year paper can show you pattern and variety of questions.
Now you have collections of both then What Next…………………?
Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams Step-3
This step is the most important of all the steps. From the day you thought of preparing for a government job, your priority should be to make notes for the exam. The method of making notes for each subject varies. In this blog, we will discuss only how to make “Math Notes”.
So without wasting the time lets make the road map to prepare Math/Quantitative Aptitude for “Government Job” “Sarkari Naukri”
Firstly divide your syllabus into two parts
Part 1 Main Topic Part 2 Auxiliary Topic
Main Topic:– Main Topic of Math/Quantitative Aptitude for “Government Job” “Sarkari Naukri” are isolated one another such as Percentage, Time and Work and Time speed or distance.
Auxiliary Topic:– Auxiliary Topic of Math/Quantitative Aptitude for “Government Job” “Sarkari Naukri” are either partially or completely depends on any Main Topic such as Mixture and Allegation depends on Percentage and Ratio.
Prepare Maths For Competitive Exams Step-4
Now you have completed three steps it is time to prepare notes. It is seen many time students do not have properly prepared notes. The biggest weapon of any student is “Examination-based Systematic Notes”. A student is more careless for preparing notes than any other activity. Preparing the exam based on “Xerox, pre-prepared classroom notes, a friend’s notes” is only to destroy your “valuable time, money and your efforts in the exam”.
This is a terrible situation. This situation is such that if you are a soldier and going to the battlefield and you do not have proper weapons then what will be the percentage of winning the war.
The chance is Zero
So if you do not have properly designed and syllabus covering notes then there is no chance to be selected in government job exams. Do not make this mistake and just not only prepare your notes but also design it
How to design Exams Oriented Notes?
- First of all, you should have a notebook to make notes and some extra paper for calculation or rough work.
- Now you have to select the main chapter. The examiner asks four and five types of questions from any of the main chapters. Select a simple pattern, now start solving the question in a rough paper.
- When you know one and more ways to solve that simple pattern and you get the proper command to solve that question.
- Now you write every detail of that question in the notebook and most importantly leave some space after every question so that it can be used that blank space if any new method is found in future.
- Similarly, select another pattern, then find the best way to solve that pattern in your rough paper, then write it in your notebook. When you have completed the chapter, leave some pages blank after the chapter to update your notes. So that when a new pattern comes, it can be written on those blank pages.
- Caution: – ‘Selection and type of Question’ is subject to your choice and your right decision. Please select the questions carefully.
- After completing the main topic, then select an auxiliary topic and cover all its patterns. Like you interest after percentage and then cycle interest can be solved.
- Complete all the chapter notes associated with the syllabus in this following way.
This process takes 2 months to complete notes and please do not focus at speed in the beginning. If you achieve accuracy then your speed increases automatically …
Step-5 (Final Stage)
After completing your notes it is time to revision and take a mock test daily and repeat your notes once a month and keep updated by the time.
