You can read the reviews of the people who've used this book at this page at the bottom of it.

You just have to solve all the introductory exercises and level 1 questions of the above chapters from this book. It provides a good number of shot-cut methods to solve the questions and you will also learn the logic behind these short-cut methods.

Some helpful tips for maths section

1. Minimize the use of pen and paper. Try to solve the problem first in your brain and if your brain is unable to do that then solve on paper. Do not try to solve to the question fully on paper.

2. Solve the question at the space provided with the questions instead of solving them at the bottom. Every minute is important in exam hall. Just plug in the values in question itself and solve.  

3. Learn the methods, rules, formulas and questions which are repeated most frequently in the exams. Like you shoul have learnt simple tables upto 20 & also square and cube table upto 20. There many more small things which repeats itself that should be leaned instead of doing that in the exam hall.  
Good Luck!
