Do i need to know each and every thing in a subject during GATE preparation OR should i be exam oriented??

Aditya kumar Student Expert 4th Sep, 2019

Hello there! 

Greetings! 

It's good to know everything thing in a subhect but when it comes for preparing for competive exams you need to be totally exam oriented.Time is a very crucial aspect while preparing and it should be saved by avoiding unnecessary research on any topic. GATE preparation must be highly exam oriented. Reading complete textbooks for each subject takes up a lot of time and effort. It is a very good practice for enhancing knowledge but not so much when one tries to prepare for GATE in a stipulated amount of time. The focus must always be on clearing the exam and thus, the preparation strategy must be highly goal-oriented at all times. Textbooks or any such sources must only be referred for topics that one finds tough to understand from their primary source of study. 

Topics can be classified into two different types which are; conventional (traditional) areas of the syllabus and rarely asked topics. Conventional areas are those which must be prioritized since they are sure to carry the highest percentage of marks , you should focus more on these topics .

Rarely asked topics can be taken care of at the end of the subject as they can provide an extra edge, in case a question from those topics comes up. Similarly, out of numerical and theoretical topics, depending on one’s own comfort and strengths, one must identify and prioritize topics accordingly.

thankyou

What I do first ? Preparation for gate or for UPSC/MPSC ?

Apoorva Student Expert 3rd Sep, 2019

Hello dear student, 

See anybody cannot just vaguely tell you what you you do right now. It depends upon your will and on your Goal what you exactly want to achieve in life and what is your motto . Preparing for gate means you want to do mtech etc while preparing for upsc like huge exam means you are ready and prepared for the job. Both are very different from one another. So kindly think once again and think until it clicks you . Because you know your exact situation than anybody else.

I hope this was helpful

Best wishes

Is college engineering level studies enough to crack Gate exam in Instrumentation engineering?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 3rd Sep, 2019
Yes for sure,
Subjects are same and concepts are static. So yes you can. College studies means how much you have studied. Being an engineer under graduate no one will  give you end to end learning. For that you can follow nptel. There you will get everything you want for free. That much will be sufficient for you. And for the preparation part solve numericals and previous year papers.
Hope it helps!

How to prepare for the logical reasoning section for the Cat exam and other MBA exams. How much time should i give to all sections.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 2nd Sep, 2019

Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning needs to be practised as much as possible. Comparison of data, Data Analysis, taking clues, interpreting missing data, coming to conclusions and making future projections will be covered under this Category. The questions here are interlinked and so if you get one formula correct, cracking the next few questions will be easy. So it's important to memorise and practise formulae. You should cover topics like Data tables, Data Charts, Bar Diagrams, Pie Charts, Graphs, Data Comparison and Analysis.

Preparation tips:

As this is the most tricky section, this needs a lot of practise. Solve as many sample papers as possible to get the hang of the section. Make notes when required. Regular practise can help you understand and solve the questions easily as time goes on.

Overall,once you know the syllabus, it's easier from there on.Go through the previous papers to analyse and prepare a comprehensive plan and set priorities according to the importance of different topics across sections. Customise your own study plan based on your strengths and weaknesses. Gauge your preparation from time to time by taking mock tests. Solve questions to check your levels of preparation but not to set any targets. Remember, its ok to have cheat days and relax. But make sure you have a plan and stick to it for the next few months
