SSC JE 2017 Civil Preparation Strategy & Plan

1. Syllabus: Know your syllabus thoroughly. You will not be very successful in writing the exam if you are not aware about the Syllabus and scheme of exam.

2. Focus more on theory: It is known very well, that in civil engineering is a very practical subject but it involves a lot of theory and one must never avoid the theoretical concepts of the exam as there is a lot of chemistry and physics that goes

3. Get your Basics Right: Get your basics right and then only you can go further with more tough concepts.

4. Prepare Notes and Revise: Apart from using reference material to study, you need to prepare using your own notes and other

5. There are no shortcuts: There are shortcuts to success in civil engineering. You have to work hard to achieve success in civil engineering.
