Preference to solving NIMCET question paper
When I attempt NIMCET 2010 examination then I felt nimcet exam duration was too short compare to question paper. You should first attempt Computer part then attempt Analytical Ability and Logical Reasoning then should attempt English and finally attempt Mathematics.
Solve question paper in two rounds.
You should solve only simple and direct answer questions and those questions which takes less calculation or less time consuming.
Solve typical questions and lengthy questions.
