  1. For objective: the MCQs provided in the book
  2. For Conventional : solved examples and some unsolved questions( if time allows)
  3. Some selected topics.

3. Previous years’ papers of GATE (ECE+EE+ICE: for common subjects)

4. Previous papers of ESE(ECE+EE: for common subjects)

5. PSU papers if possible( not necessary though)


  1. Take one subject at a time. Read the theory from the notes.
  2. Finish the subject; mark the topics you didn’t understand. Then read them from any standard book. If you get it, it’s fine. If not discuss those with teachers/friends.
  3. Now solve previous years’ objective questions for that subject (GATE+ESE both) and the ones from the standard books (if given). Mark those questions you could not solve, and then read the corresponding theory from the notes/books again. You don’t have to read the whole book. In fact you wont get enough time to do that for all subjects. Just read the selected topics and chapters.
  4. Write the formulae in a different sheet which you are unable to recall while solving the question papers.
  5. Then go for previous years’ subjective questions. Practice the derivations repeatedly. Follow 4 and 5 again. And yes don’t get panic if you could not solve some of the questions. Every year there are such types of odd/difficult questions.
  6. Then go for solved examples from the standard books, and if time allows go for some important unsolved questions from the standard books.
  7. Follow the step 7 religiously for at least 5-6 subjects (choose the subjects as per your liking and previous years’ trends). You have to prepare all the subjects for both objective and subjective papers. But for subjective prepare those 5-6 subjects with special attention. Because for conventional/subjective paper you have to be very well prepared in some of the subjects so that any questions can be solved by you in the examination hall.
  8. Before starting the next subject revise the theory of the previous subject (preferably the topics and formulae you marked or wrote).
  9. And next time before starting the subject 3, revise the subject 1 and 2 and so on.
  10. Join any offline/online test series. It will be very helpful in tracking your progress. Take the test series seriously and evaluate your weak points. Work on those areas more.

Solve as many questions as possible. That will help you clear your concepts. Finish the syllabus within the stipulated time and revise each subject 3-4 times.

All the best 🙂
