You should read 


  • Data interpretation is really important. DI sets take less than 10 minutes and normally accuracy is high in these questions.
  • Data sufficiency questions are actually bonus questions. You don't need to solve the questions, you need to find out whether the information given is sufficient or not. 
  • As exam difficulty is going to increase, concentrate on accuracy.
  • Devote at least 35 minutes to this section.
  • Always attempt Quantitative Aptitude first as this section takes lots of efforts and concentration.
  • Practice few online tests
  • Make mental calculations
  • Never skip questions quickly
  • If you have no idea about an question set, simply skip it. Don't try to solve questions that are unusual for you.
  • Never stick to a question. If a question took more than 3 minutes, simply skip it.
  • Ideal attempt = 80% questions with 80% accuracy
