One of the most sough-after streams of engineering is Mechanical. There has always been a stiff competition for this stream. This post provides detailed information on steps to follow to prepare for GATE Mechanical Engineering, important books to study from along with other content.
Find the correct syllabus. This ensures that you will be studying only for those subjects which are included under GATE. Often, students collect extra information from several websites, eventually wasting time in studying obsolete topics. The core and special topics are taken from your four years of engineering.
Choose your content wisely. Be it books or video lectures. See to it that the entire syllabus is covered in whichever resource that you might choose to use. Following is the list of some of the best books available in the market.
1. Thermodynamics(P.K. Nag)
2. Machine Elemnts (V.B. Bhandari)
3. Fluid Mechanics
4.Material Science(O.P. Khanna)
5. Automobile (Kripal Singh)
6. Strength of Material (R.K. Rajput)
7. Dynamics of Machine
8.IC Engine (V. Ganeshan)
9. Engineering Mathematics\
10. Quatitative Apptitude(R.S. Aggrawal)
You can also find a plethora of high quality video lectures. Here’s an example!
Go through the syllabus thoroughly and identify your strong and weak points. If you are starting you preparation early, then you can probably work on your weak points while simultaneously brushing up the strong ones. Having a look at the subject-wise weightage of the syllabus will help you as well. Accordingly, you can plan how much time to you will have to devote to a particular subject. Ensure that regardless of the weightage, none of the topics are skipped in your preparation. The exam is always a surprise!
