A meticulous study plan is the right approach that can help you resolve all your doubts. It will also help you get a thorough understanding of theories, concepts and also their uses.
Right from the beginning of the preparation process, you should make a list of subjects and should prioritize them on the basis of the marks allotted for each section.
Then, you should create a timetable with the distribution of subjects as you can study different subjects on the basis of the marks allocated to them.
When you do not properly plan the distribution, you will end up learning topics randomly, which will lead to confusion at the end.

Taking up tests will give you a clear idea about the difficulty level of the test and also you will get to know the right pattern and how much time should be allotted for solving different types of questions. In addition, it will also help you with identifying your capabilities and areas that need special focus from your end at practice sessions.
Reference books with solved sample question papers will also help you with the preparation.
