Last Days at Forcados for example is very interesting.. I can’t even remember how many times I read that book….
7. Treat Past Questions EVERY DAY.
Make sure you get JAMB past questions for all your chosen 4 subjects. You can always get them at the bookshop.
In case you don’t know, let me tell you; JAMB doesn’t have time to start setting new questions all over. They always repeat past questions and if you have been a diligent regular customer on past questions, you would realize that part of what you’ve once solved might peek out.
I remember last two years when I was writing mine, there was this particular page on register… I’ve treated it before in the past question and it all came out in the USE OF ENGLISH test. I was very glad… Trust me I nailed the mother****er
8. Attend Tutorials.
Sometimes you might have a lot of problems to solve. Going to tutorials will help you with all these.
So, if you have the dough, attending tutorial is a very nice step. You don’t have to go the expensive ones, there are always cheap ones around who are also doing well.
And if you know you’re not taught well in a tutorial you’re attending, pack your things and GO
9. Endeavour To Do Early Morning Reading.
Doing early morning reading is a very thoughtful and useful idea.
Waking up to read early in the morning is very good because your mind would be fresh and it will be very easy and quick to assimilate.
You can start with waking up around 4 oe 5 a.m and read for like two hours or any convenient hour.
It’s advisable that you read for at least 2 hours when you wake up in the morning.
