Important Tips for GATE
Focus on Basics: GATE questions usually cover fundamentals of various subjects. Hence, learning topics by heart is not the best way to prepare for the tests. By focusing on the basics, you can answer higher-order questions accurately as well.
Prepare Along with Graduation: It is best to refer to the standard textbooks which are part of the engineering syllabus as the curriculum of all Indian universities is at par with GATE standards. It is not necessary to refer to multiple textbooks.
