How to score high in GATE Electrical Engineering Exam?

The GATE exam is all about understanding concepts and application in problem solving. You must start your preparation as early as possible. The major topics are covered in engineering colleges between 3rd and 6th semester. So pay attention to your Electrical Engineering college classroom notes. You must have also studied from Nagrath, Wadhwa books during your college. If you studied diligently during your semesters, you can refer to your notes for GATE preparation.

The biggest challenge in your GATE exam could be the numerical type questions. Do your calculations calmly and correctly. Even a digit change can lead to huge errors in final answer and you will lose marks.

Solve previous year papers.
