- I would also suggest you one strategy that a heavy topic should be followed by a small topic. In other words after copleting a heavy chapter, start a small and easy chapter.
- A good revision strategy is also important in a subject like SFM. In case of poor revision, it would be difficult for you to recall SFM concepts and formulas in exam hall.
- Theory portion can be prepared on daily basis. Recommend to study atleast one hour daily.
- SFM, the question paper is purely practical. Therefore, you have to practice solving a good number of questions on each topic. Try to solve each problem on your own (by yourself), in spite of just auditing the solution from notebook or study material. So, Do practice on regular basis.
