How should I start my SSC descriptive preparation as a beginner? Can you share your strategy?
I guess having scored 190, 196.25 (raw), 196.25 (raw) in English mains of CGL 17, 18 & 19 respectively makes me eligible to write this answer. When I started preparing first, like many of us, I too was not sure about how to approach the English section of this exam. All I knew was, it would be going to play an important role as it carries 250 of maximum 700 marks. After gathering some information about the syllabus and going through some websites related to CGL preparation, this is how i studied for the particular section. Word Power Made easy - This was the very first book I studied. Being a long book, it seems scary to open this book at first. But believe me, when you start reading it, you won't put it down. It lays the foundation of your vocab learning, and vocab has a huge role to play in your English preparation and in your selection as well. Objective General English - Read this book till all the grammatical rules & vocab are on your finger tips. For grammar portion this is hands down the best book for english section of competitive exams. Neetu Singh Volume 1 - Though, Grammar section of both these books is not very different, there are some things which are not available in the other. So, I would suggest you to read both of them. Banker's Adda mini mocks - Once you have read these books at least 2-3 times, start taking adda mini mocks daily without fail. These mocks will provide you the much needed confidence. GRE word list (1500 words) - For many people it might be irrelevant as the vocab is comparatively complex, but I found it very useful in my preparation. When all of the above points are covered comprehensively, start solving MB publications’ previous year papers. It contains both Tier 1 and mains papers. Don't lose touch of any of the books mentioned above. Revision is extremely important because whatever people tell you, there isn't much to understand when it comes to vocab. You have to read it again and again to be able to remember it. Apart from these “must be done” points, there are a few things which can be done additionally - Newspaper/Novels - Reading is important, read as much as you can. It doesn't matter whether you read newspaper or a novel or any other literature in English. On a subconscious level, everything you read leaves a lasting impression on your mind. It makes your understanding of English better in a gradual manner. Whenever you watch any English movie, I would suggest you to watch undubbed version of it and if it's too fast for you too understand it, use subtitles. Listening also plays an important role in improving your understanding of the language. Read all the books in English, don't use hindi books even if you are/were a student from hindi medium. Well, this is everything I had followed during my time and I hope this will work for you guys as well. Sugggested this strategy to one my friend's and his score went from 8 marks in T1 of CGL 17 to 181.25 (raw) in mains of CGL 19 😀. PS. I was a hindi medium student till 12th standard. So, for all the people who feel hindi medium students have a disadvantage in this exam, don't lose hope. There is nothing we can't do, all it takes is a right strategy and dedication.
