The best way to practice for any exam is to go through previous year question papers for the same. After a candidate has solved the past year papers, he must practice more by solving sample papers and practice sheets.
The sample papers for competitive exams are prepared keeping in mind the type of questions that are asked in the particular exam. Many of the sample paper questions are directly modelled after previous year questions.
Thus, it will be highly beneficial for the candidate to pay attention to solving SET 2017 sample papers. These are available on many websites and can be easily downloaded. A better alternative is to practice mock tests online. Mock tests have fixed time limits that help you get trained for attempting the question paper in a given time period.
Most websites offer an in-depth analysis and score of your mock test. This helps you figure out which areas you need to work on and which are your strong suit. Websites may even provide an overall rank to help you understand your comparative performance.
So, sample papers and mock tests are crucial parts of the SET 2017 preparation process. A candidate cannot deem himself fully prepared unless he has some experience appearing for mock tests.
Studying just the theory of any subject is not enough. You need to practice a variety of questions based on that theory so you can grasp it from every perspective. This is where SET 2017 sample papers can help you greatly and boost your confidence in your preparation levels.
