For obvious reasons, entrance exams have never been a piece of cake. Regardless of how many competitive examinations you must have already taken, a different approach is required every time and so is the case with BITSAT. The All-India Birla Institute of Technology and Science Aptitude Test (BITSAT) is a computerized competitive examination to assess candidates vying for admissions in engineering and science programs.

The very first question that hits one’s mind during the preparation process is which study material to choose.
