How to Crack Quantitative Aptitude Exam 

Aptitude exam seems to be an easier part but considering that it screens a lot of students it plays an important role. I will be covering how to prepare and how to approach for aptitude exam in this blog.

This will be more of a general aptitude based as I have already mentioned how to crack the technical questions in my other blogs.

When to Start the Preparation:-

If you are aiming for the college campus interview you should start it by the end of 3rd year of BE/BTech.It will hardly take 10-12hrs for you to prepare for this section.
Only for the verbal aptitude takes time. At least for the vocabulary section, you should start it as early as possible. Please also read my other post on how to develop communication skills.

Which book to refer:-

You can use R.S Aggarwal for both quantitative and verbal aptitude. Focus more on preparing quant part because verbal is not something that can be prepared over the night rather language takes time to build up. That's, why I mentioned above, start verbal section this as early as possible.

How to Prepare for Quantitative Aptitude:-

Solve the questions of the above-mentioned books. While solving the questions mark the important questions and formulas. Write down those formulas in your separate formula notebook. This formula notebook should be referred before each interview because not every time before the interview you will have the luxury to solve the complete the R.S Aggarwal.

Also if you get time to solve those important question that you have marked while solving them in the first place. Your main focus is to increase your speed and accuracy in this. Please try to practice the questions frequently and of more difficulty. Don't lose touch if there is a big gap.

To summarize....practice....speed...accuracy...mark the important questions...formula notebook...keep on revising....increase the level of difficulty of your practice questions

Since the syllabus may seem a little bit vast to prepare but if you read my other post on how to revise its easy.

Tips:-You find 3 levels of questions in the book(R.S.A) easy, medium and difficult. Most questions asked are medium level questions. But just go through with difficult questions. This is not mentioned explicitly in the book, the level of question that you have to decide by using your brain.

How to approach the exam:-

There are basically 3 types of questions asked in the exam

A-Solved many times
B-Never solved before but you know can be solved after trying
C-Never solved before and not sure whether can be solved after trying

First, solve all the A-level questions in the exam and avoiding getting stuck in the C level question. Your aim is to solve as much as questions possible. Generally, students end up wasting a lot of time generally in B& C level questions, on the other hand, they miss a lot of A-level questions. The strategy to solve the question sequentially is good for the only board exam. After solving all the A-level questions than in the second round of the questions try for B level and in the end try for C level questions.

Please note the questions are generally not longer if you are taking a lot of time to solve means you are going somewhere wrong better to skip and try other questions.


1. Be on time for the exam.
2. Carry your own rough papers.
3. Avoid using another tab to cheat on the internet.
4. Using a calculator is generally not allowed.
5. Sometimes the online exam portals require to save the answer after marking. (don't forget to do this)
6. Try to go in later batches and get some idea from the students of earlier batches about the questions.
7. Online apps are also available for aptitude preparations that can also be used.
