TANCET Preparation Tips 2018 for Engineering Mathematics

Last Updated - May 18, 2018

Engineering Mathematics help candidates to get admission into various M.E./ M.Tech/ M.Arch/ M.Plan degree programs. It is the mandatory subject for the candidates to clear for getting admission in the desired courses.

The difficulty level of Engineering Mathematics in TANCET was easy to moderate this time. But, Numerical Methods and Vector Calculus were comparatively difficult than the other major topics. Based on the Engineering Mathematics subjects, the paper comprises of 20 questions. Applicants are advised to prepare all the topics carefully to clear the examination with good marks.

Engineering Mathematics: Important topics

It is always advisable to the candidates that they must go through the TANCET Syllabus before appearing for the exam. With the help of the syllabus, candidates will come to know about the important topics asked in the exam.

The following table shows the important topics that candidates need to prepare for Engineering Mathematics:

Engineering Mathematics: Tips to prepare Important Topics

Better preparation tips help candidates to prepare for the exam in a better way. Following are some important tips and tricks for the preparation of TANCET exam:

Time Management

Better time management plays an important role in the exam preparation. Candidates should divide time in such a way that they should complete all the topics on time. Applicants need to prepare proper timetable that it covers all the topics.

For better results, candidates must master on the complex topics if they have enough time till the date of exam. Otherwise, it is suggested to focus on the areas they are confident about and if the time permits, new topics can be covered accordingly.

Better Study Material

Better study material helps candidates for good examination preparation so that they can score well in the examination. Candidates are advised to choose best study materials to crack the exam. By solving question papers, candidates will come to know about the exam pattern and weight-age of the questions.

Here, best study material includes the basics and their applications. Material having a balance between the basics and its applications is what is required.

Solve Previous Year Question Paper

Candidates are advised to solve sample papers and attempt practice tests vigorously. Mock tests are available on the internet. Question Paper helps candidates to increase their accuracy of solving questions and makes the candidates confident about the exam. It gives a hint to the current pattern, important questions and topics. Check TANCET Question Papers

Solve as many question papers as you can. It’ll surely help.


Revision is the most important part before going for the examination as it helps to recall many important things. Candidates must complete their syllabus on time so that they will get enough time for revision.

While going through the syllabus, mark the important points and questions. At the end, it’ll serve to be the best revision material where candidates can cover simple and complex topics in limited period.

Engineering Mathematics Section: Preparation Books

Books play an important role in the preparation of the examination. It will help candidates to clear their doubts regarding any topic. Candidates must select TANCET preparation books very carefully as they also contain the questions from past years which help candidates to achieve good marks.

The following table shows the books recommended for the preparation of Engineering Mathematics:
