In case you’re a final year student or a working professional, it is even more vital for you to follow a strict routine, as time-constraint is a significant issue for you.

3. Improve your online reading

Since SNAP’s a computer-based test, you will be scrolling most of the time to read and re-read Reading Comprehensions (RCs) in the General English section. By improving your online reading, you will save a lot of time in comprehending the context of the passage. It will base on factors such as understanding the structure of an article, the transition of writers towards their main argument, the language in which they write, etc. By getting familiar with such colloquial aspects, you will master answering RCs.

You can apply this technique in other MBA entrance exams as well.

4. Solve DI sets & note down formulas

Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency is one section that needs a lot of practice. It will familiarize you with the prospect of solving lengthy DI sets and understanding quant concepts. Also, noting down important formulas will make you quickly solve objective questions. So by the time the exam date arrives, you will know this section like the back of your hand.

5. Attempt mocks

You cannot think of cracking SNAP without attempting mocks. They act as a platform to test your knowledge and gauge your progress. Mocks also help in identifying your strong and weak areas, so that you can work on them. Moreover, your overall score will increase with every passing mock, which will give you lots of confidence heading into D-DAY.
