Hi all! I am Swastik Mohapatra. I have
cleared the written and the

**SSB**rounds of the**128’th NDA course**. I am writing this article to give you some important tips and tricks of trade to help you prepare for**NDA written exams**.
Now assuming that you know all about NDA I
won’t waste time in mentioning that NDA is one of the best military
institutions in the world and stuff. Coming straight to the point:

**How to prepare for the NDA Written Test?**
Now, for being successful in the written
exam you need to have a systematic approach and a lot of practice. Remember,
NDA Written exam is NOT difficult at all but you need to have a lot of practice
to get good marks in written.

Now that you know what the syllabus is, I
will give you some useful tips (which have been really useful for me) to help
you succeed.

I suggest you begin preparing at least 3-4
months in advance because then you will have enough time for revision.

Starting with Maths : Maths section
comprises of 300 marks. It entirely consists of the 10+1 and 10+2 syllabus. So
if you are a class 12 student, no worries. Complete your 12’th Maths Syllabus
and revise the 11’th syllabus. That would suffice. For students in class 11
(and under) I suggest starting in at least 6 months in advance. That way you
can complete your own syllabus and also complete most of the 12’th syllabus. I
recommend you buy the book published by Arihant “Pathfinderfor NDA and NA Entrance Examination” . It is a really good book. It first
gives the important formulas of the Chapter and then gives you lots and lots of
questions to practice. It also gives the hints and explanations for the
difficult questions. This book will also be helpful for preparation of CBSE
exams as it contains some really good question.

Start doing one chapter at a time. If you
know the chapter well, then just read through the formulas and do the practice.
If you are not familiar, then write each formula at least 10 times. This will
help you to memorize formulas. I know its not the right way of learning but
then you have to memorize formulas to solve problems quickly. After memorizing
the formulas , see the Examples in the book which will help you know how to
apply the formulas to problems. Then do the practice questions. I repeat again
“PRACTICE AND PRACTICE”!! Try to give
yourself a time limit and solve the problems within the stipulated time. This
will increase your speed. Keep
practicing. That’s the key. DO all the maths questions in the book and you are
bound to get a very high score in math in the Written Exam.

Next up , General Ability Test which is of 600 marks. The Arihant
book covers all the aspects of each and every chapter in detail and then gives
practice questions. So I suggest that you go through the book and practice the
questions. Physics, Chemistry, English do not require much memorizing. You just
need to understand the concepts and solve problems. For biology, history,
civics and economics you need to do a bit of memorization. What I suggest is
that you should make notes as you read through and revise those notes regularly
to help you memorize the things.

Also
I would suggest that you buy the book “10years NDA & NA Entrance Exam Solved Papers” by Arihant. Do all the
questions and you are bound to succeed.

As
a last bit of advice I would suggest that you should test yourself every week
on the syllabus completed in that week. This way you will not lose track of
thing and you can prepare in a systematic way. Try to enjoy your preparation.
This time will never come back. SO enjoy your preparation and you will see
success following you.

So
see you in NDA cadet

Thanx for Info
