How to prepare for CS Foundation Exam
Published On : 2016-01-01
CS foundation exam can be cracked
in first attempt provided students have prepared themselves in correct manner.
The problem is that till XII students have gone through lengthy notes and are in
habit of writing too much in a little time. Well this is how they have been
prepared and taught for most of their schooling and all of sudden they are
expected to prepare for an exam that is completely objective and still requires
an indepth knowledge.
Rule 1 to prepare for CS
Foundation: Don't waste your time. Syllabus is too vast to be covered in a month's
First mistake that students make
is that they do not realize the fact that syllabus is very vast and needs a lot
of time to complete and to be through with the subject. So a student should
start 3-4 months in advance, studying on daily basis.
Rule 2 to prepare for CS
Foundation: Don't Ignore the Study
Material that you have received from ICSI.
This is the most common mistake
students make while they prepare for most of the competitive exam. Students
simply rely too much on notes and material available in market and completely
ignore the material issued by the concerned body. I do not doubt the quality of
material available in market but still a student must read material issued by
ICSI at least once and this reading should be done before a week of exam.
Rule 3 to prepare for CS
Foundation: Start Using Calculator and learn Short cuts on Calculator
Most of students while practicing
for practical subjects like Statistics and Accountancy use mobile phone as their
calculator. What they forget is that they will not be allowed to carry
their mobile phone in their examination hall.
So on the day of their exam they are not able to perform calculations
properly on their newly purchased calculator and waste their time due to it.
Moreover while practicing for
practical subjects try not to use paper and pen. Of course you will be provided
a rough sheet for calculation but if you practice to avoid using it you will save
Rule 4 to prepare for CS Foundation:
Read Bare acts regularly for Law
Just as reading study material is
important in the same way reading bare acts is important not only for cs
foundation but for all law exams. So read bare acts whenever you can. Download
a copy in your smart phone and instead of playing games to kill time read bare
acts. It will help you.
Rule 5 to prepare for CS
Foundation: Practice Practice Practice Practice
No matter how well you think you
are prepared never stop practicing or reading. Remember Practice makes a man
perfect. So practice and practice in time bound manner. Set an alarm and see how
many questions you have completed. This will give you an idea if you will be
able to attempt your entire question paper.
Rule 6 to prepare for CS
Foundation: Have Faith
Over confidence will surely
destroy you and under confidence will not allow you to take right decision at
the right time. Just have faith in yourself that you can do it, you are no less
than others and you can do it.
