online coaching is better for snap exam

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 10th Nov, 2019
Online classes save a good amount of time that is otherwise wasted in commuting to coaching centres.
Online Coaching gives priority to your comfort and convenience. You can learn at your own pace, anywhere and anytime. So you can study online for SNAP exam. But the most important thing is to study for yourself. Write different mock tests to brush yourself. Since SNAP is a moderate level entrance test, regular practice, strong strategy, positive attitude and time management is all it takes to crack it.

i want to ask if syllabus of CAT and SNAP are same,i mean can i give SNAP on basis of CAT preparation!

Rehan Alam Student Expert 25th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

One key difference between them is General Knowledge . Out of the 150 questions asked in SNAP, 30 are from the section General Awareness. While the other three sections, General English, Analytical & Logical Reasoning and Quantitative Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency have 40 questions each.

On the other hand, CAT does not feature any kind of General Knowledge or General Awareness questions, which makes it stand apart from almost all the management entrance exams of the country.

The syllabus under each subject, be it English, Quantitative Aptitude or Reasoning, is more or less same under both the papers. You will have to study similar sort of concepts for both the exams. However, t he GK section of SNAP 2018 makes you stretch a little extra to crack this exam . Otherwise, both the exams are on similar lines when compared on the syllabus front.

Hope this helps. Thank you.
