How to prepare for AP PGECET 2019?

One thing we will all agree upon is, if you aspire to achieve anything in your life, whether or not you have the talent, hard work and dedication will lead you towards your goal, as the saying goes “Slow and steady wins the race”.

The first and the irreplaceable key towards success is hard work. But what will you work for, if you do not have a plan? Smart- work and hard work go hand in hand. What is smart work? It is nothing but a simple term which demonstrates the following concept:
