Dear Students, official notification for GATE 2024 has been released and soon for ESE, Other PSUs will also be release. So you have already started making strategies and plans for doing study, making notes, choosing study material and online test series. Here we are writing for you something which can help you to choose best study material for GATE, ESE & PSUs for 2024 session.
(a) Choose an Institute publication house’s study material: Go with an Institute publication house not with an individual publication house, because an institute have a much larger updated technical team for content development, making questions and solutions which can help you to stand with latest exam trends and level so that you can compete with other students with great competitions. Now a day’s many big institutes are having more aggressively approach for the content development compare to individual publication house. So we suggest you to go with a publication house which belongs to an institute.
(b) Check their previous reviews on online marketplace or website: Whenever you think of buying a study material, check the reviews and feedbacks for the publication house on marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, Snapdeal, Flipkart and shopclues. At least 3.5+ Star rating out of 5 should have for the study material by a publication house for books in terms of quality, delivery, content etc. Also if the publication house has their own ecommerce website, go through with it and check the reviews, ratings and feedbacks from previous users.
(c) Buy latest sessions study material not older one: when you order study material online from marketplace or websites, go with latest sessions 2024 study material, many publications houses are still selling last years or session 2023 in more discounts. Don’t go with old session study material, buy new one.
(d) Paper quality should be good: While choosing study material, check a sample for paper quality for the books and study material. Because you have to use them at least for 1 year. Many publication houses do not have good binding of books, check that also.
(e) Cover complete syllabus: The presentation of the entire syllabus should be systematic and unique as per the requirements of the examination. The content of the study material is should be designed as per the syllabus and exam pattern of the GATE, IES/ESE and other competitive exams. The study material contains technical sections (according to your branch) for all exams related to GATE, ESE and PSUS including all technical vacancies and exams. The study material includes subject-wise presentation of theory and practice sets, which includes quality questions along with answers and detailed explanations.
(f) Ask if they provide online test series also with this study material: When you are going to buy a study material from an institute or publication house, ask if they provide online test series with the study material also or not. Because when you are going with their course content, it will help you to go with question selection from their content, and you can easily access your study level and competition from their thousands of students who are doing regular study in their classroom batches.
(g) Does they provides question bank with the study material: Interactive and self-test questions throughout the study manual for revision of the topics in each chapter and a question bank containing exam standard questions for revision practice is must for a technical exam aspirant. So ask the publication do they have a question bank for particular subjects in this study material. Because after completion of courses you only need to practice questions which is a key to score higher in technical exams.
(h) Does they have technical support number or team: When you are going to choose any publication house for buying books, please make sure that those publication house provide any technical support number or not because when you are facing an technical problem about study material, online test series and question bank you should have support of someone from technical department, it will be beneficial to you.
