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

Ans. My weakness was two subjects- Analog communication and Electromagnetic. I started preparing for GATE from the month June 2012. I know you have to put a lot of efforts to excel in these two subjects, so I would advise you to prepare a time table. I personally believe that these two subjects require a dedication of 30 days. Once you are thorough with the subjects you are weak at, then you should focus on all the other subjects.
