i can't join coaching due to some presonel reason .how can i prepare would you suggest plzzzz

your plan is the formost

your plan is the formost thing. how you are going to make your preparation is cleared by your planning. as said 'well begin is half done'. so make a plan with full coverage of syllabus and start reading with full determination and hard work. follow your schedule even if you lose interest many times as it happens sometimes in following so long target.read standard material and better start with basics of subjects. it woulsd be good to read ncert books to start for selected subjects. read thououghly and keep on your hard work. sure it will work. make group of people with same target and have discussion with them on current topics and subjects. discussion is better than RATTAFICATION. once you start, you would come to know tactics slowly by yourself.

how to prepare without join a coaching
