  1. Hello mam i already completed of bachelor degree of library science and information last year can you tell me how can i prepare myself to crack the library exam.

    • 1. You can read and refer multiple books on same topic.

      2. You can practice & solve more questions, MCQ’s

      3. You can have spare time to relax.

      The answer to your question is in 1, 2 and 3 above.

      Self study can make you exploratory – can help in tough exams that tend to test depth of knowledge; it can also help you develop an attitude of self-made – this is a good side effect, results simply doesn’t matter!
