Time management is of enormous and gigantic importance in CSS exam preparation. Study behavior, environment and surrounding usually become the cause of distraction for the candidates. Try to be more determined and innovative in your study behaviors. Studying for an hour and then taking a break of half an hour would get you nothing.

Keeping your mind busy in multiple things at one time will make you less productive and you won’t be able to focus. Turn off your cell phone, laptop and television and read your topics with concentration to save your time.

Study material is of huge importance because this competitive exam requires sound preparation. Try to understand the topic by using dictionaries, internet and other sources to get the best out of a topic. Organize your thoughts and keep your goal in your mind that you have to succeed.
Revision of the read topics is also pretty necessary because you forget most of the part of the read topic after a day or two. To save it in your long term memory, keep revising the read topics so that you could prepare well.
