While preparation students often do silly mistakes while start preparing for entrance with overconfidence and choose difficult topics to prepare first which makes easy portion inacessible to the student due to shortage of time. Management is the key to success. The trend of prepapring for entrance examinations is entirely different from university theory exams.

This magazine reminds me of the pattern which actually should be implemented for excellent preparation.
