  1. Publisher – Its always advisable to purchase the material from a reputed coaching institute. As they are dedicated to the field totally, they generally have the infrastructure and faculties to produce quality material. Also, don’t forget to check Nata Results of previous batches.
  2. Website – Check out the website of the coaching institute for students testimonials, Nata Online Test Reviews etc. A website reflects the credibility of the institute. If the website is updated, chances are that the course material is also updated. A good website generally runs blogs and forums to help the student community.
  3. Number of Books – Individual books should be dedicated to separate topics like analytical ability, sketching, architectural awareness etc. This means more the number of books, more detailed content.
  4. Test Series, Solved Papers & Architectural Awareness Portion – No study material kit is complete without Nata previous year papers : Solved & Unsolved. Architectural Awareness Portion is covered with pics of historical and famous buildings of the world.
  5. Time Taken for Delivery – When ordering online, always ask how much time will be taken to deliver the material.
  6. Add Ons - Sometimes Combo Packs prove to be more economical. A lot of students who appear for Nata, also give JEE Mains Paper 2 exam. It makes sense to go for Nata & JEE B.Arch Combo Pack rather than the Nata Solo Pack. Surprisingly the price is not double, but only a small addition to the Solo Pack.
