There are various websites that offer online course material and other stuff for competitive exams but the one that I find the most useful and resourceful is https://www.youth4work.com/. The most important part of preparing for any exam is analysing the question paper. What is the pattern of the paper, types of questions asked, their difficulty level, various sections of the paper, time limit etc. etc. So the best way for preparing for any competitive exam is to solve questions. Only by practising more and more questions, our preparation can be fruitful. In most of the websites, only study material is given and that too in a very uninteresting and boring manner. But as the saying goes, “practical knowledge is more important than theoretical knowledge”, application of those concepts in the questions is very important. Most of the time we memorize the shortcut formulae or some slang abbreviation to learn some concept, but when it comes to exams we can’t even remember our shortcuts let alone the original formulae or answer. Youth4work is better than all other websites because it focuses more on practice questions than on theoretical knowledge. There are a wide range of categories to choose from, like • Government Jobs ( SBI PO Prelim, UPSC, SSC CGL TIER1 etc.) • Management ( CAT, MAT, SNAP, XAT, etc.) • Private Banks paper( Axis, HDFC, ICICI etc.) • Medical ( AIIMS, NEET, JIPMER etc.) • LAW ( CLAT, LSAT etc.) • Defence ( NDA, CDS etc.) • Engineering( GATE ) • CA (CPT, PCC, Final ) • Placement papers (Infosys, TCS, Amazon, Deloitte etc.) • NSDC Skill certification • State Public Service Commission • Study abroad( GMAT, GRE, SAT, TOEFL etc.)
I don’t think any other website provides this much range of topics. Now, most of you would say that there are also many websites which provide mock tests, so how does this make Youth4work so different. Well, I would like to say from personal experience that I don’t like to invest my complete 3 hours ( in case of CAT exam because I am preparing for it) in the exam when I know that only certain areas require attention. Youth4work is designed in such a way that you can take sectional tests, in comparison to other websites in which you have to take the whole test in one go. For example, while preparing for CAT, the paper is divided into sections like Aptitude, Verbal, Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning. Now if I know that I am weak in DI then I would like to solve the DI section only and not the whole paper for 3 hours. This feature of taking sectional tests make Youth4work more convenient and likeable. Also, there are individual timers for each question. Like if you are solving DI section then you don’t have to spend complete 1 hour on this section. Each section is divided into questions which have a separate timer. So it asks you every time before showing the next question. Therefore it makes solving questions easier and convenient. The next best thing about the website is the yTal report which shows you your actual rank in your class/ college/ institution, city, state, country which you provide for filing your details. It really helps to see where you stand in the broader perspective. Also, it shows you your percentage and percentile of your questions attempted, which is really necessary while evaluating your performance. Give it a try. Cheers and all the best.!!
