It depends on how good your verbal and quantitative abilities are. If you are confident enough that you can perform well, coaching is also not that necessary. There are many online resources available. In my case, I took two months for my GRE preparation and a week for ToEFL. Though my scores are not very much impressive, I believe I did a good work. It is not too late anyways. Improve your vocabulary and reading skills. This is the most time consuming phase in my opinion. I always loved maths, so quants were not that difficult for me. All the best.
I am in second year BTECH. How should I start preparing for CAT if I am really serious about it?
As you are in the second year, you will be eligible to take CAT 16. You should ideally start your CAT Prep at the beginning of your pre-final year of graduation. Your CAT preparation can be divided into the following stages:
1. Stage 1: Concept Preparation
Make a list of concepts/topics assessed in the CAT. Understand their relative importance in the CAT. Make a plan to ensure that you are comfortable with most of the concepts, if not all. You may spend more time on areas where you are weak and rush through concepts where you are strong. For English, work on your reading skills and/or vocabulary(presuming most engineers are good at neither;-)). This is something you will need to do by yourself. Do not ignore Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning - learn the art of solving these questions in a structured manner.
Deadline: Ideally complete this stage by Apr 17
Resources: Standard reference material of coaching institutes(IMS BRMS for eg.), Class notes if you join a class, Books like Arun Sharma
2. Stage 2: Practice with CAT level questions
After Stage 1 is complete, you need to now get comfortable solving different question types and under time-constraints. Learn how to use options while solving questions. Learn better and more efficient ways of solving the same question. The more the number of questions that you solve, the more will be you be familiar with and hence confident of tackling CAT questions.
Deadline: Complete this stage by July 2017
Resources: Past CAT question papers, section tests provide by institutes like IMS, books like CAT 500
3. Stage 3: Fine tuning your test-taking skills
Here comes the most important phase wherein you will solve as many tests as possible. You will no longer look at questions in isolation. The objective now is to maximise your attempts and accuracy in a test. Practice the art of choosing the right questions to solve, having an eye on options, not getting stuck in particular questions and efficiently managing time. Take as many simulated tests as possible - but more importantly, analyse each one of them to find what's going right and wrong. Always pick an area of weakness or two and work on it before taking the next test. Your scores will improve gradually and you should plan your tests in a manner that you peak when it matters - November 17.
Deadline: D-Day CAT 17
Resources: Mock tests of ANY 1 leading test prep players like (IMS SimCATs)should be sufficient.
I hope you have your answer. All the best for your CAT quest.
PS: In the meanwhile ensure that you also score well in your graduation. Add to your profile by working on projects, pursuing internships, participating in sports/ extra-curriculars or anything else that you believe can add value. If need be, work on other aspects like communication skills and general awareness that can matter at the second stage of the selection process.
I am in my 2nd year of engineering. When should I start preparing for the GATE? Should I start from now on?
I guess Gurpreet has summed it up well in his answer. To add to that a bit more, yes focus should be more on understanding the course subjects the first 2 years of Engineering.
Third year would be crucial, as focus should be not only on understanding the core subjects (few examples like Electric Machines for EE, Communication systems and Signals for EC, Database Management systems and OOP for CS branches respectively), but also look for the pattern of questions in these areas in previous years GATE papers, and see if you can solve them from your understanding of the courses.
By the end of 5th semester, you should spend dedicated time on GATE type questions and other practice questions (couple of hours a day is sufficient, make sure not to lose focus on Engineering courses!).
You can also take short term summer coaching after your third year in a coaching institute which often helps. There are various options like Online coaching (either for full GATE portion or only specific subjects where you feel you are weak or likely to need more help) etc. if you don't want full-time classroom coaching.
Cheers and All the Best!

I am going to start preparing for CAT, but I am confused how should I prepare for CAT at home and where should I start from?
Before starting the preparation, you must know about the exam. Also, know the Syllabus & the Weightage of each section.
- CAT is a 180 minutes exam consisting 100 questions having 300 marks.
- It comprises 34 from Quantitative Ability, 34 from Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension, and 32 from Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning.
- The question paper consists of both multiple choice questions and TITA type questions.
Plan your preparation. Your plan should include syllabus completion, revision, and practice tests.
- Build Basics - This is the most important part of preparation. If you will be good with the basics, you will be able to solve all types of questions based on that particular topic.
- Practice - Practice is the only key to success, so practice as much as you can. Take out the books from market or you may practice from study materials of leading coaching institutes like TIME, IMS, CL.
- Mock tests for analysis - This is the part on which majority of toppers emphasize. The reason is that, you come to know about your weak areas only after writing mocks. Once you know them let them not be your weakness anymore. Also, writing mocks will make you less nervous in the exams.
- Join a good online coaching - In the pandemic era everyone is opting for online coaching. It helps you to be motivated and determined (as compared to self-study) .
I am 40 and I want to go back school to obtain my degree, am I too late?
My mother started college at the age of 42. It took her 8 years to get her bachelor of arts degree. At the age of 50 she began law school, and was graduated at the age of 53. She is 83 years old now and still practicing law. My wife at the age of 52 began her studies to obtain a Master of Social Worker [MSW] degree which she just completed.
I have taught college and law school. It is well know in academia that students over the age of 30 do very well in school. Students over 30 are very serious, and they do not undertake school lightly. Regardless of what you do, in 2, 4 years from now you will be 2 or 4 years older.
You are never too old to learn. I have had students in their 60’s and 70’s in my classes as students.
I am 28 years old. Can I start government preparation now? I am in the OBC category. Is it too late?
You can surely try it, it's not too late..
I have come across prople who started their preparation from above 30 and succeeded.
But, it's upto you to decide how satisfied are you with whatever is your current life and would that be wise to start something new at this point when evryone else generally starts making a life and building it strong, yeah, i meant what you are thinking..
Nothing matters if you aren't happy with what you are now,
Just sort out below,
-Ur finacial position-to support your preparation, books, coaching, food n shelter, any dependents bla bla..
And coming to Govt jobs, as I am from one, u having said u r from OBC, you have ample opportunities and also time, ex- Civil services exam's age limit is 32 plus relaxation of 3 yrs for OBC if i am not wrong..Other Central Govt jobs jlhave age cut offs at around 27 generally with respective category age relaxations.
All other state Govt jobs have way too high age limits..
Better late than never..WILLPOWER IS ALL THAT IS IMPORTANT AT THIS STAGE..
all the best..
I am in BE first year, when should I start preparing for GMAT exam?
The sooner the better!
Vocab has a high weight-age during scaled calculation, you may start preparing the same.
During a few months before the exam date, work on the accuracy in verbal and speed in Quant.
Should I start preparing for the GRE? I am 17.
Are you confusing GRE with SAT?
If you are 17 and are looking to go for undergrad abroad (to US), then you’d need to give SAT exams. If this is what you meant then yes, you should start preparing for SAT exams now.
GRE is for masters and you have plenty of time to prepare for that.
