How can i prepare for mhtcet in one month??

AnkiT KunwaR 20th Feb, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

It is tough but definitely not impossible but you will have to be really determined throughout 1 month.
MAH-CET is a test of speed and accuracy.
It has 4 sections:

  1. Quantitative Aptitude
  2. Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension
  3. Abstract Reasoning
  4. Logical Reasoning

For quants get RS Agarwal quantitative aptitude book and start solving questions.

For reasoning buy Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning by Dr. RS Aggarwal and start solving.

For RC get Norman Lewis Word Power Made Easy.

These are the books that you must complete in one month.

But time is very less so you can also prefer to get MH-CET(MBA/MMS) Entrance Guide, by Disha Publications book and complete it.

Good Luck
