Coaching Center or Self Study? - GATE/CAT Preparation Tips

By
This post will provide you the guide for the GATE/CAT Aspirants to do preparation at Coaching Center or to do Self Study. There are lots of students who are going for GATE/CAT are keep me asking about the coaching center and Study plan too. So, here i am providing you the general advantage and disadvantage of Preparation at home and Coaching Center.

Before i start explaining, the decision of taking coaching or not is totally depends on the person who are going for the Competitive exam. If you are the guardian who reading this, then i will suggest you to do not force him/her to join or not to join for the preparation, let make them decision themselves.

Coaching Center or Self Study? - GATE/CAT Preparation Tips

Advantages of Joining Coaching Center

The candidates who wants to join the Coaching center have biggest advantage that they can get learn and study under the supervision of the Experience faculty who already have Good knowledge of the exam. So, they will teach you the best thing about the exam and explain the topics that will give you best answer of your query.
You can get the study material, notes and other information regarding the exam easily at the best. you do not need to do anything just pay the fees and start preparation for the exam.

Disadvantage of joining Coaching Center

The biggest disadvantage is that you have to spend lots of time for traveling from home to coaching center daily. This will be the biggest waste of time that you can ever experience for coaching. If you study at hone, you can use this time in much better way.

Also, going to coaching will meet you new friends and that will be one more reason to waste of time. you can not control yourself to join them for new hangouts.

Advantage of Self Study at Home

Time, yes the thing you were loosing at coaching center will gain you here. Also even after joining at coaching center does not guarantee you to clear the exam. You must have to do home work for the work assigned to you. So, you have to self study even after joining the coaching.

you can get the study material and notes with best eBooks at internet (like our blog). So, you do not need to spend the money on study material as well as on the Tuition fees.

Disadvantage of Self Study at Home

Distraction! This will be your worst night mare that will distract you from the study with TV, Internet, Relatives, Friends, Family issues and even a Single breakfast/dinner time will distract you from study. Your favorite TV show and Cricket match will force you to watch it for while and then you will keep watching it for next few hours.

So, Study at home will not give you the control over the time and discipline for the study that you will get at coaching center easily.

So, these are the basic disadvantage and advantage of study at home and for joining coaching center. I will suggest you to make balance with both of them and get best choice for the one that match best.

"Stay Focused and Keep shipping".

It will be too hard for you to focus, but once you have decided with this, you can make it anything and achieve it anything in your life.
