Important Study Tips for ASRB NET Exam
The ASRB NET is by no means an easy exam. Candidates need a well planned strategy to study for the exam and crack it in the first attempt. Here are some important preparation tips & strategies we suggest ASRB NET aspirants of the 2021 exam follow.
#1. Knowledge gaining
At first, one must know the syllabus of the discipline they have chosen. Depending upon your subject in Masters Degree, you can chose a discipline in the ASRB NET. For that discipline then, you have to study as per syllabus.
You can note the syllabus from links above. Then you have to study those topics from your books used in Masters degree.
Many candidates ask for best books to prepare for ASRB NET. Here you may note that for theory, every candidate finds a different book to be good. This is because every author has a different way of explaining the same concepts. We recommend that you use those books which helped you understand theory best during your postgraduation.
Now the ASRB NET has multiple choice questions. Thus you should be able to answer MCQs on topics that you have studied in syllabus. Here, good reference books with MCQs, past year papers of ASRB NET, sample papers, and mock tests play an important role.
Practice a large number of questions every day.
Do not compare yourself with others. Compare yourself with your past self. Each day, you have to target to be better than what you were yesterday. If you can answer more questions, more quickly each day, then you are on the right path!
As can be seen, ASRB NET has negative marking. So you have to make sure that your accuracy also improves gradually.
Every student finds some topics to be difficult. A successful person is one who overcomes his own fears. So you should try and conquer those topics in ICAR NET syllabus also which you find to be tough.
Focus, determination, and hard work are the only key to succeeding in ASRB NET!
