well...since you have studied from three books and scoring nice in the mock exams you will be quite confident in the exams

as far as ur queries are concerned, please see the introductory pages of K&B book...they have really give nice 'test taking techniques'.

MY word of advice - "Somehow try to penetrate into the exam once you start it. Be fast enough. Dont wait at questions which you are unable to answer at first sight. Go to next. This way you can do all "easy/medium hard questions". Then again come back and try to solve the remaining

hope that helps. Be sure to go through the K&B book's introduction pages

Hi Hema,
Time won't be a constraint in the exam (in most of the cases). The exam duration is actually more than we need. You will finish the exam 15 minutes earlier (assuming you don't think toooooo much on a single question).

The exam duration is 2 hours and there are 61 questions - ok,if you now use an intelligent calculator, it will say "2 minutes can be taken for each question"

The questions will be easy and don't require us to think deeply.
But don't be relaxed - you should be ready to face any rare tough questions.
Study the K&B book thoroughly as you can expect many questions from that book (or atleast similar pattern of questions)

The exam software is very user-friendly. The concept of marking & unmarking is very simple. While reviewing you CAN go back to all the questions. The marking of questions is to highlight some questions among the whole set.

If you have doubts on some questions and like to come back again at the end then just mark those questions - so that you don't have to search for the doubtful questions. Then there is no need of unmarking the questions.

It seems you are having lot of books for preparation. Its better to study a single book completely than to study more books partially. That single book is none other than K&B.

God is great. Friendship is double great.
