You must know and understand the syllabus thoroughly and focus only on the Class 10 CBSE Maths syllabus. This will make it easy for you to cover it in its entirety. Be aware of the sections/topics that are important and carry weightage. This way, you can decide how much time you will devote to each section. For instance, if questions from a section will carry only 5 marks each, you need not spend much time practising sums/problems from there.

Jot down formulas, theories, methods

Remember, Mathematics contains all formulas, concepts, methods, and theorems. We suggest you keep a separate book to note down all these. And, do keep this book handy, for you can read these even while on the move. Besides, jotting down something in your own writing helps you remember it better. Moreover, this practise is very helpful for last-minute revision as well.

This material covers everything in the syllabus, is well-presented and is simple and easy to understand. In fact, almost 40% of the questions in the exam are almost direct ones from the NCERT books. Therefore, we suggest that you complete studying from the NCERT book first. Also, do go through every solved example in this book.
