While preparing for the GK section in IIFT entrance test, a student should focus on issues related to national & international events, world bodies, and foreign trade-related information.

  • From the various issues of MBA Education & Careers magazine, read
    • OMET GK Special material published in the June-July/August/September issues;
    • Business GK;
    • Current Issues & Events;
    • Current Event Chronicle, and
    • GK Model Papers feature titled, Improve your GK.

  • Manorama & CSR Year Book - they help in preparation for stock type questions. In any such book, please focus on the following chapters: Who is who; What is what; Science scan; Human body; Computers; Landmarks of history; The Universe.

Finally, OMETs for IIFT question papers question papers are perhaps the best source for preparation. It comes very close to the actual IIFT entrance exam paper and one should give maximum importance to these question papers.
