I first revised all the class notes given on Fundamental of computers& Programming with c, Engineering mechanics, Basics of mechanical engineering, Engineering thermodynamics, etc. thoroughly till December 2016. I made short notes while studying so that I could use those for revision at the last moment. I studied up to 10 hours each day. I made sure that I studied more than two subjects each day alternating between them. Also, both theory and numerical type questions were done by me daily to avoid getting bored.
