Planning; Before you start studying it is essential that a plan should be there in your mind that which topic you are going to study and from which source.

As far as possible strict with your plan and make all efforts to achieve the goal which you have set in advance.
Set short targets; Do not set lengthy targets, short targets will help to understand and assimilate the concept easily and in better manner.
