GATE 2017 Preparation Tips by Santosh

Find below our Questionnaire about Santosh’s Inspirational Preparation Story, who took admission in Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University.  

Q1. What mock papers did you take?

I have just solved previous years GATE papers.


Q2. What are the websites you followed for getting regular updates and preparation?,, GRADEUP Android app


Q3. Share the name of the books and materials that you followed for excelling in GATE?

Mechanical Handbook by Made Easy, Gate Mechanical objectives by Made Easy Publication, Gate book by Pearson publications, Gate book by Arihant Publication.

Note: GATE Books


Q4. Write some of the preparation tips for someone who is starting 4 and 2 months before the exam?

Don't go for every subject. Go deep in the subjects you like, because gate is a sea, you can cover the syllabus fully. Study the topic from reference book and solve the questions from the gate book. Routine is the key to crack the GATE. The HANDBOOKS provided by Made Easy Publication is very helpful, on shilled revise its daily. If you start study for GATE before 2-3 months, do not give the mock tests, it will probably de motivate you.


Q5. Share your Strategy and how did you overcome the weak areas, what special efforts did you put in?

In some subjects, I was very weak, but as I studied from NPTEL as well as the reference books, I fell in love with those subjects. Sometimes due to dull book, we find the subject not interesting. Nowadays there's so much content available on internet for every subject. One needs to find the queries on the internet and you will be benefited. Another thing is time management, try to solve as many questions in short time, it will give you extra time for the questions you finding difficult to answer.
