Ans. I took the mock tests available online. They were really helpful in the last days. Mock tests makes the students test their ability after so much preparation and get familiar to the pattern and idea of taking the test.
Ans. For aptitude I go through books and for subjects I go through study materials that collected from my faculty.
Ans. Only text books are enough for GATE. Study thoroughly though. Every topic in the syllabus must be covered. Do not read anything which is unnecessary or doesn’t come under GAT Syllabus.
Ans. If you want to score in GATE you should be confident and study confidently but not as like normal semester exam. If you wish to join a coaching institute, you can. Apart from that, you must study on your own and revise the notes given in the coaching centres. But it is your self-study which pays off in the end. Coaching institutes can guide us into studies, we will have to walk on it anyway. Remember to jot down points given in the mock tests and notes.

Ans. I had prepared for GATE for 3 months. I put all my efforts only to those 3 months on gate preparation. No matter how much time you are left with, you can prepare for GATE if you follow the right schedule with smart management of time. I had a regular schedule which I followed religiously. Sometimes, it gets tough, but I managed anyway. I believed that if you suffer now, you will enjoy later. And it did happen, I am happy with my performance in the exam and thankful for my college.
