Ques. Share the name of the books and materials that you followed for excelling in GATE?

Ans. Actually, nothing much specifically for GATE. But, I had a good base in my bachelor's. Take out your 1st, second and third year books and brush up the concepts. I used the following books:

  • Discrete Mathematics - Albertson-Hutchinson
  • Architecture - Morris Mano
  • Digital Electronics - Morris Mano
  • Data Structure - Tanenbaum
  • Algorithms - Sara-Basse and Weiss
  • Networking - Tanenbaum
  • OS - Silberschatz-Galvin
  • TOC – Linz and Papadimitrou
  • Compilers - Aho-Ullman

These are the books I referred but its best to stick to the books you are already familiar with.

Ques. Write some preparation tips to excel GATE 2017? 

Ans. Remember you do not transform into a machine just because you are taking an examination. You must keep time for family and friends, as well as for your own self in your schedule of studies. Practice things that you like doing, such as listening to music, etc. Look after your health and eat well. Avoid studying late at night if you are not used to it.

Ques. Share your Strategy and how did you overcome the weak areas, what special efforts did you put in?

Ans. I was very thorough with the concepts in my graduation and I wish other candidates to be too. It makes your work easier. Anyway, I just remembered some simple points to make it through. Preparation is sometimes very tough when you have so much stress but you must remember it is an entrance exam and you can crack it.

Be confident about your preparation.

  • Here are some tips for preparation that I mention always. Think it will be helpful.
  • Make a rough plan to cover up all the chapter (All the chapters should be covered).
  • Do not worry much about grade point. Keeping a grade above the cutoff for GATE is enough.
  • MUST buy ARIHANT GATE TUTOR book corresponding to your branch. And start solving problems from this whichever topic you study in your ongoing semester. Like you will be having course on mathematics and elementary course from your branch, start doing questions from this book. Also follow the text books which are recommended. They will brush up your basics.
