Hello, I am currently studying for an undergrad scholarship. I require some help.
Hello, I'm currently studying for some scholarship exams (Math, Phy, Chem) that take place in june 16~20.
This is a scholarship that could possibly change my life, I want to have a higher level of education, which I can't get in Paraguay. So I'd really appreciate some advice.
(These are example past exams : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0ae71mxco...wKAN00gya?dl=0)
And these are the syllabi:
(This is for the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU) but the Qualifying Examination for Monbukagakusho Scholarship follows this syllabus as well)
As for Math, I'm studying number theory from Serge Lang's Basic Mathematics, and went through stewart's pre-calculus book (but I think I may be going over it again since I didn't master it completely yet), and I purchased these books: http://puu.sh/oi74g/3b9a413268.jpg
The thing is, I don't know if these are enough to be able to ace the exams, there are Math, Physics and Chemistry exams.
And as for physics, I'm currently studying and taking notes from Walter Lewin's MIT lectures. And doing some exercises on the Sears & Zemansky University Physics book I purchased.
I have no Idea on where to start on chemistry, maybe just read a intro to chem book or something?
So, is my approach correct? Or should I attempt to change it? What is your opinion?
Thank you for reading this wall of text, I appreciate any help or advice you would give me. I really do.

When you study you have objectives and goals that the assessors are looking for.
When it comes to exams you focus on what they are likely to examine you on and that determines the material that you will have to use - and the sorts of drills / practice exercises that you should attempt.
If you give us an idea of the curriculum then we can provide further assistance.

Number theory doesn't seem to be required, but calculus does, according to the 2015 paper... so you might want to study calculus instead.
