For all those engineers and non-engineers alike who have difficulty with Quant, here are some quick tips to keep in mind while preparing for Quant!

  1. Make a formula sheet. I cannot stress enough how important this piece of formula sheet would be for the next few months.
  2. 3 words. Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice till you cannot go wrong.
  3. Pick a topic. Solve all types of questions from that particular topic. Highlight the ones with a new method. Review. Revise. Repeat for other topics.
  4. Give sectional tests! This would be a life saver when you want to test your (perhaps) newly acquired ability of Quant and when you want different types of questions to solve.
  5. Your first task should be to improve your accuracy. Speed comes later.
