Have thorough understanding of the entire NEET syllabus
Undoubtedly, NEET syllabus is a complete ocean and it's just too vast. Here we aren't advising you to study the entire syllabus but you should know the entire syllabus and the topics should be on your finger tips.
This is because, with a clear understanding of the topics, you won't be able to formulate a strategy at all. Without knowing and understanding the topics of the syllabus, you won't be able to classify and decide which topic needs your attention the most and which needs the least.

Also, by analysis of previous years NEET question papers, you'll understand the pattern of question and they can prepare accordingly.
Get expert and limited guidance
Getting expert guidance is justified but limited guidance?

You'll be listening to a lot of NEET toppers interview where they will share with you their preparations tips and strategies. So, if you look for guidance there will be a plethora of people in your family, friends, school, coaching and on the web who will take this pain. However, ultimately you'll be left confused and there will be a huge mess in your brain which will become difficult to clear.
