However, candidates are required to prepare using authentic material to succeed among huge number of participants.

Solving old question papers of other examinations may sometime prove very useful in language and reasoning sections.

Earlier candidates had very less choice in searching material for preparation but websites like amazon and eBay has made plenty of books available at very cheaper rates.
