Questions on General Awareness and Aptitude can practiced by solving sample papers or previous years papers to know exactly how they come, and for the other two papers (Pare II and III), one needs to be thorough with their subjects.

It is just not reading that is important, but also making notes of the important topics, so that they are helpful during the revision session.

The more the previous year papers(PYP) are solved the better it is. This really gives an idea as to how questions appear and you can make notes accordingly.
