8. How to Prepare for MAT 2024?

With additional type of IBT exam added in MAT exam, apart from PBT and CBT exams, the preparation for MAT has somewhat changed. However, the MAT exam preparation is not difficult, given the fact that MAT is considered a moderate difficulty exam. Reading good MAT preparation books, practicing with exercises, previous year papers with solutions are a good tool for MAT preparation. If you are preparing for CAT or XAT, you will find the MAT exam much easier.

 

One of the important points which differentiate MAT preparation from other exams, is the separate section with 40 questions on ‘Data Analysis and Data Sufficiency (DADS)’ which is slightly different from Data Interpretation in other exams. The DADS Preparation and the strategy to prepare for this important section is to be properly planned and followed to score high. The preparation strategy needs more focus on four core sections keeping the ‘Indian & Global Environment’ section at last place.
