definitely increase the rate of calculations. Get up early in the morning. Go
out for a walk, spend 30 minutes outside and comeback. Sit with the calculative
problems and you will notice a lot of speed. For the night owls, it will be the
opposite though. But still Maths in the Morning is the best thing.

plenty of simplifications will help you to score more in all the sections of
Quantitative Aptitude.

beginners. Get your smartphone, set the TIMER to 3 minute and try to solve 20
Basic Sums, increase it, the day it reaches 60+ you will not need to do this
step anymore.
