Some important topics covered in Quantitative Ability includes
Time and Work
Permutation and Combination

As it is also an adaptive paper you will not be able to select the easy question in the first and you should go one by one after completing a question. So, you really need to be on your feet to complete the paper. So you need to practice few questions before going for the test.
Some important topics covered in Verbal Ability includes
In this section there will be 25 Questions to be attempted in 20 minutes. The questions will be mostly from the above topics with significant number of questions from Reading comprehension. As there are lot of reading stuff involved in this section, it is a bit of time consuming. Some prior reading practice will help you in clearing this section.
Some important topics covered in Reasoning Ability includes
Blood Relation Puzzles
Coding and Decoding
In this section there will be 20 Questions to be attempted in 20 minutes.Here again you have only one minute per question. So you really need to be quick as reading and understanding the puzzle type question will take some time. Again some sort of practice before the exam will be useful.
