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

Ans.Plan your reading: It is important to create a strategy for reading and focus on one subject at a time. Consider reading newspapers, reference books and blogs on a regular basis. One good idea would be to make a list of books you want to read to gain an insight into the topic. For instance, if you have problem in understanding the circuit theory, consider reading reference books on basic circuit analysis, transient response for DC circuits, and resonance and coupled circuits. This helps you to understand the context of the topic before actually reading the text book on circuit theory.

Set a goal: Decide how many books you want to read in a month, and try to achieve that goal. Make a daily schedule for reading, and stick to that – no matter what. For instance, you may want to read for one hour in the morning, and two hours in the evening every day. Make it a habit for you. Also, make sure that you enjoy the entire reading session, rather than just following a routine. You should always carry a book with you while traveling, so that you can read whenever you get time. It is also important to share and discuss what you read with your friends.

Take Part in Extracurricular Activities: An engineer is likely to have an all-round personality. Just having technical knowledge may not be enough to ace an interview for top-level jobs. If you want to prepare yourself for the best opportunities, consider taking part in extracurricular activities. Depending on the type of activities your college organizes, you may choose to take part in outdoor games, fundraising events, or social awareness campaigns, such as, planting trees and volunteering in adult literacy programs. This helps to develop your communication skills, leadership skills, and boosts your self-confidence and mental aptitude. There cannot be a better time to participate in extracurricular activities than in the first year of B.Tech, when you can afford to spend comparatively less time in your studies.
