A good article by the author which will be helpful to many students to make a plan of their study. He almost covered all relevant points to justify the subject. All important factors required for getting good marks in the examinations are given and elaborated to the benefit of the candidate.

Many students want to cover total subject one day before the exam. That means they are trying to feed a lot of information in the lost moment. It is not advisable. You should have plan complete all the subjects well in advance and one day before the exam you have to just recap the whole subject. You should not get tension in the examination times. So planning accordingly is a wise thing. Understand the subject instead of making by heart.
My appreciations to the author for his brilliant work.
