How to Prepare for LPU NEST 2017 B. Tech Physics

Last Updated - March 29, 2017

LPUNEST 2017 will be conducted online from April 10, 2017 to April 30, 2017, across various cities of India. The exam would be conducted in online mode. Candidates should carefully go through the LPUNEST Exam Pattern for different streams – engineering, management, law, hotel management, design, agriculture and applied medical sciences.

All the questions will be in Multiple Choice Questions format (MCQs). There will be no negative marking in the exam. Candidates must carefully go through the section wise weightage and pattern of questions for the courses they want to apply at LPU.

LPUNEST is conducted every year by Lovely Professional University for admission to various academic programs offered by it. LPUNEST is conducted in Computer based format divided among 4 sections viz. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and English for a total of 400 Marks. The Syllabus of LPUNEST is of 10+2 level. The level of difficulty of questions asked in the test is at par with the Class XII standard.

LPUNEST Result will declared on the official site in the month of May – 2017. Counselling sessions would be separately carried out for all the courses. LPUNEST was introduced in 2009 as a common entrance and scholarship test for all the aspirants from different streams.

LPU NEST 2017 B. Tech Physics Preparation Tips

Some topics are pretty important in every subject and we all know it. So, we did an analysis and came up with the ones that you shouldn’t miss in your preparation for LPU NEST. Check them out.

1. Electrostatics: A high scoring topic that needs clarity of concepts. There are almost four questions that are asked every year in the LPU NEST exam.

Book for Electrostatics- Concepts of Physics by H C Verma is a good book for electrostatics as it contains good quality of solved numerical problems  

2. Oscillation and Waves: Once the basic concepts are clear, read the Concepts of Physics by H C Verma to study this in depth.

3. Modern Physics: One of the important topics for both LPU NEST 2017, this is a scoring topic. Check out sub-topics such as radioactive decay of substances, nuclear fission and fusion, dual nature of matter and X-rays. Don’t forget the Bohr’s model while studying this one. The trick is to study and practice the numerical questions in this topic also. NCERT is best to get the basics right. Then move on to Concepts of Physics by H C Verma for the theory and 3000 Solved Problems in Physics by Schaum for the numerical problems.

4. Optics: A relatively easy topic, it also happens to be a scoring one too. While studying this don’t foget to check the Huygen’s principles. You can score well as this topic is easy as well as important. Read Understanding Physics for LPU NEST, Advanced Optics & Modern Physics by DC Pandey to get a grip on this topic.

Important Topics

As part of the LPU NEST Preparation Tips for Physics, we bring to you those topics which are important as a good amount of question from them will be asked in the LPU NEST exam. The LPU NEST 2017 preparation for Physics must include these topics as every mark counts and these topics count too.

1. Magnetics- LPU NEST in 40 Days by ARIHANT, Understanding Physics for LPU NEST are books that will help you sail through.

2. Electromagnetic Induction and AC- Numerical problems from this topic generally are asked in LPU NEST. Brush up Faraday’s Law while studying this. Read Concepts of Physics by H C Verma to get better in this topic.

3. Current Electricity- Ohm’s law, colour code for resistors, characteristic of ohmic and nonohmic conductors are some topics that need to be emphasized on. Use Concepts of Physics by H C Verma to hone them up.

4. Waves- Sub-topics like principle of superposition of waves, simple harmonic motion (S.H.M) and its equation, Doppler Effect in sound are scoring topics. Give more importance to them.

Last but not least

The topics given below are not placed very high in the reading order but it is advisable to read them at least once and know the concepts.

  • Physics and measurement
  • Dual nature of matter and radiation
  • Communication system
  • Gravitation
  • KTG
