With Christmas gone and XAT 2017 exam approaching in just couple of weeks, it is now time to fully accelerate your preparation in top gear for this important Exam of XAT. In the previous article, I discussed about the preparation strategy for various sections of XAT 2017. Today, I will be debunking few popular myths related to MBA entrance exams, especially of XAT.

IIFT 2016 exam is just around the corner. While your preparation for Quant and Verbal must be great, it is important that you do not neglect General Knowledge. There is nothing more heartbreaking than to find a student who has cleared the overall cutoff for IIFT but missed out because he / she did not clear the sectional cutoff for GK. Before you ask - Yes!
