Practice past papers and mock tests for CS Executive Course:

One of the best ways to evaluate your CS Examination preparation is to appear for mock tests. With this you can assess yourself and see if you are able to attempt the entire paper in the stipulated time.  Get subject wise scanners to check out the past papers. In this way you can get an idea of the kind of questions asked in the examination and the expected answers in desired format. The key is to know how much of the information to cover while answering a question. There is always a risk of losing out marks if written short answers or missing out on time by elaborating unnecessarily.   The idea is to do an in-depth study throughout the year. However, as you draw near to the CS Executive Examination dates, shift your focus to revision. Pay extra amount of time and efforts to the subjects that you find tricky or confusing. Practice in writing. In this way you would have a habit of writing your answers along with better retention of concepts. 

Familiarize with latest Amendments & Statutory Updates

It is very important to stay on the top of your game. Get yourself familiarized with the statutory updates and landmark judgments for the past six months. For this, either you have to check the Department websites regularly or subscribe to the Daily Update Subscriptions and get the updates direct to your mailbox. In case related questions are asked in the examinations, make a point to mention the updates and earn brownie points for the same.
