Before moving on with some preparation tips, it is very important that candidates should have good knowledge about exam pattern and syllabus of Computer Science and Information Technology. For example, you can start with General Aptitude because this section does require much time and also the weightage of this section very less in the paper. Let's have a look at some beneficial preparation tips:
Your preparation should include all those things that will help you succeed. Include the best study material, books, online lectures, etc in your preparation plan. Candidates are advised to refer to their UG level books and notes to get in-depth knowledge of the subject. Candidates can also refer to the preparation tips of GATE toppers and if you found any useful point in their plan then do not hesitate to include that in your plan.

If candidates combine these two then nobody can stop you from cracking the exam.
If you are attending any coaching classes then it is very easy for candidates to ask questions after every class. But for those candidates who are preparing at home by themselves, it is very difficult for them to get answers if they have any doubts. So these candidates can take the help of the internet to get their answers because it is good to have some questions after the completion of a topic as it will help you in getting better understanding of that topic.
