Questions can be framed from topics which may be out of the box, but having a better understanding of the topic rather than just learning can be a step to success. Here are some important tips to build the basic concepts in learning of mathematics.

(i) Frame the Strategy: In order to excel in the section of Quants, it is very important to analyze the subject. First, go through the syllabus and allot time for all the topics according to the time left for the examination. You may find some topics that are difficult and can be covered at a faster rate, such as Complex numbers, Quadratic equation etc. whereas, the other topics like Calculus, Number System etc. which acquires the majority of questions need more time and attention. 

(ii) Jot down the list of Formulae: Formulas are the first thing that comes to our mind when it comes to the subject of Mathematics. It is important to note down the formulas while preparing for the competitive exam. In order to have a fast calculation, it is important to memorize all the formulas. Practicing more questions related to the formulas will always help to be a step ahead towards clearing the examination.

(iii) Practice Daily: We are already aware of the fact that “Practice makes a man Perfect”. Thus it is extremely important to keep practicing maths daily.
