Continuing the discussion from How to prepare for GATE 2018 exam?:
With GATE approaching close, I'm getting scared day by day. I recently resigned from Infosys as it wasn't, firstly, my field of interest and, secondly, I wasn't getting much time to study for GATE.
I've done electrical engineering and my syllabus for this particular exam is quite huge! As we all know that the exam is in early February, so it's proving a little troublesome to read each and every page of all of my books which I'm having with me.
Also, I have too many numerical pending to solve and only 52 days are left for the exam from today.
My question now is, what should I utilize my time on?
1) Book reading
2) Practice problems
Till now I chose to move with option 3 and I know most people will recommend that one only but it's consuming a hell lot of time and the progress is not seeming like something to be proud of.
Actually book reading is good but to crack this particular examination problem/numerical solving is required most (As what toppers say). But the problem is that without reading books and understanding the concepts one cannot just solve any problem!
Also like I said that I was working in an IT company till now, I am now finding myself to be completely fresh in the field of electrical. In other words, as I've been out of touch for so long with what I learned in my college times, I now need to go through the entire course!
So please suggest me how should I make strategy to CRACK this exam? And I seriously want an honest answer to one more question of mine here:
IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO CRACK GATE IN 52 DAYS of preparation?
PS: I cannot join any coaching/institute now as I'm already pretty late for that.
Note: Please don't just say "solve previous 10 years question papers" as I'm already doing that. Please feel what I'm asking here. Thanks.
