GATE Preparation Tips for Mechanical Engineering:
The Gradual Aptitude Test for Engineers, which is also known as the GATE Entrance Examinations, is one of the toughest Engineering Examinations in India. These are usually conducted for the purpose of Admitting Candidates to the Post Graduate Engineering Degrees and Programs.
These Entrance Examinations is conducted in Several Papers and to be more precise the examination is conducted in 22 papers namely (Mech engg, Chem engg, Etc.)
Mechanical Engineering also seems to be one of the most preferred choice of subjects apart from other streams of Engineering.
So here is an articled dedicated exclusively on Tips for GATE 2015 Mechanical Engineering:
Well we first have to understand the Gravity of the Situation here, GATE is not simple, plain and ordinary University Entrance Examination. This is a national level Entrance Examination which is conducted across the Country for Admitting Candidates and Students to Post graduate Degrees and Programs.
Thus an adequate level of time is seriously required for a serious preparation, last month or last fortnight would do you no good save burn you out with stress and worries. So at least 6 months preparation would be sufficient enough for a wholesome and satisfying study.
(b)Verify and Cross Check your Syllabus:
The most important pre requisite before you immerse yourself completely with the study preparation is to Cross Check and Verify your Syllabus and Course Content. It’s no use of studying hard for days and nights weeks and months, without even cross checking the Syllabus and the Course Content
(c)Prepare a Plan/Strategy:
Well as the saying goes “Well Plan is half done” so looking into the Vast Syllabi and Course Content it is mandatory recommended to all the Candidates that they study and divide the entire course into bits and pieces.
This would not only help you to complete the syllabus in time but would also take away the pressure and tension of the never ending Syllabus.
Well we all know that “Slow and Steady, Wins the Race” and this indeed applies to all whether you are with an examination preparation or involved in a project. Studying everyday for Regular time periods is far more effective than studying at the last moment.
(e)Very Important Topics:
It’s completely mandatory for all the Candidates to pay attention in detail to some chapters and topics for the Mechanical Engineering Papers, and this can be done only by Scanning and Analyzing the Previous year GATE Question Papers.
Topics such as Engineering Mathematics, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, SOM, TOM; Design; RAC; Powerplant; IC Engines and Engineering Material etc are of great relevance and importance. So specific and detailed attention should be given to every chapter mentioned above.
It would certainly be a good choice to study everything and not keep anything for luck or destiny. Depending upon the level of examinations, and the nature of the complexity, it would certainly be most beneficial to study everything from A-Z.
(g)Revise, Revise and Re-Revise:
Remember that practice always makes a man perfect, so it would be in the best interest for all the Candidates to practice and revise by solving as many question paper and mock test and exercises.
