Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest sprinter undergoes years of hard practice to perform well in that Olympics 100 metres dash that lasts for a mere 10 seconds.  Michael Phelps the world famous swimmer who has broken several world records used to practice more than 20 hours per day for that few minute aquatic event and that made him what he is of now.  If these people were able to achieve this feat why can’t we replicate it in our recruitment exam preparations? The key mantra is Work hard, harder & hardest and victory will be ours someday…
