As you go through your practice sessions , taking the mock tests repeatedly will help you to measure the progress that you have made on the way.

One very important thing which you learn from these online tests is that while taking the exam, in times of indecision or confusion, you should use a process of elimination to weed out the most unlikely answers. You should take a guess at the remaining options. Since there is no negative marking, you should take the maximum advantage of intelligent guesses. You should not waste time by getting stuck with one question only. And one important thing is that you cannot go back once you have selected an answer and clicked it. So you have to be very careful before clicking. After each online test , review thoroughly the complete analysis of your test including score, percentile rank, and a tally of question types and difficulty. By doing this you will know what you need to study to improve your test score.Your  preparation is incomplete without practice tests. Therefore when you join for any preparation course online or buy any preparation material, you should confirm whether it comes with practice tests or not.
