Preparation books are often required to score better in VITEEE. These books are aimed to test the candidates on various topics covered in their respective 10+2 syllabi. Some of the most popular and effective preparatory textbooks for VITEEE 2017 is provided in the table below:
|Subject||VITEEE Preparation Books|
|English||1. Target VITEEE (English) 4th Edition|
The sample papers for VITEEE 2017 will help candidates prepare well for the practical assessment. They will provide an overview of the various types of questions that would feature in the Computer based question paper.
The sample questions for VITEEE 2017 and previous year question papers must be practiced as much as possible. Candidates should try to identify the important topics and questions that have come in the previous year VITEEE question papers. They can set timers to assess their accuracy and speed in answering all the questions. There are separate sample questions for all the subjects.
VITEEE 2016 was conducted successfully on April 6, 2016, across 112 cities in India. It was a moderate to difficult level exam. Generally, most of the questions are asked from the prescribed syllabus of VIT. The VITEEE Physics paper is moderate difficulty level paper. The questions are asked from various topics such as Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Current, Energy and Power, Properties of Matter, Laws of Motion & Work, Current Electricity, etc.
The difficulty level of the VITEEE Chemistry Paper is again moderate. The topics with most number of questions are Thermodynamics, Chemical Equilibrium, Atomic Structure p,d and f – Block Elements, Electrochemistry, Chemical Kinetics and Chemical Equilibrium. The VITEEE Mathematics section can be described as easy to moderate difficulty paper. The questions are evenly distributed among all the sections.

VITEEE Biology paper is the most difficult among all the sections of VITEEE 2016. The questions are asked from different chapters like Genetics and evolution, Cell and Molecular Biology, Taxonomy, Reproduction and Human health & diseases. The VITEEE English paper is relatively easy. The questions are asked from English Grammar, Pronunciation and Comprehension.
Refer to the below table for detailed analysis of VITEEE 2016:
|Level of Difficulty||Number of easy questions||Number of Medium Questions||Number of Tough Questions||Total|
The paper was close to the declared VITEEE exam pattern. The questions were conceptual questions and so it would be advised that students work on their basic conceptual knowledge and fundamentals.
In addition to these remarks, the candidates found the physics section to be tough as compared to what was expected; however there were direct questions in the paper. The candidates also found that the test comprised of less analytical questions.
The chapter wise distribution of questions for each subject is given below. Physics had most number of questions from Magnetic Effects of Electric Current and Magnetism, Electromagnetic Waves and Wave Optics and Atomic and Nuclear Physics.
