Now the question is how to prepare for HTET. As I have told you that there is the need of proper strategy to clear the test, so besides the hard work you need to focus on this strategy. Choose some book and start reading it between the lines. Start reading topic-wise and Subject-wise.
For the Comprehension read newspapers. This reading will also enhance your vocabulary. Read 20 or 30 words of Synonyms, Antonyms, One Word Substitution etc a day.
For Hindi, Learn Sandhi, Samas, Vocabulary from 10+1 and 10+2 NCERT Books. Pedagogy depends upon General Knowledge and discretion power, still you can read Psychology Books meant for B.Ed.
In the Competitive Books, there is lot about Pedagogy and Child Psychology. Learn some theories and their propounders. Read last years’ question papers which are given in every book available at the market.
Here it is important to note that if you wish to purchase any book for HTET Preparation, check if there are last years’ question papers or Sample Papers for practice. After covering the syllabus a bit, you are expected to do at least one sample paper a day. That would certainly improve your preparation and enhance your confidence.
