Want to Practice GATE (EE) Previous Year Questions?

Well, in order to crack the GATE Exam, you need to practice as many Previous Year questions as possible. This will help you to understand the standard of GATE Level Questions.

GATE 2020 Previous Year Solved Question Bank (1991-2019) Revised version 

Though I would not recommend that you read from each and every standard textbook as going through Standard Books is time-consuming and most of GATE Aspirants may not have that many numbers of hours to devote.

So my suggestion to you is to go through Standard Books to interview specific subjects and not for all subjects. So reading Electrical Machines from a Standard Textbook is a must.

Also, the GATE exam is mostly based on upon application of concepts and not mugging up the definitions and concepts directly from the book. So focus must be on problem-solving rather than just mugging up the concepts. Hence, it is always good to have a good Study Material at hand when preparing for GATE.

The problem with most of the study material nowadays is there are too many concepts in them but none of the concepts is given in sufficient detail to enable the student to prepare via self-study.

Also, the quality of Question Bank is poor as there are a lot of mistakes which can demolish the confidence of a student and lead to frustration which decreases the throughput of any student.

So, if you guys have had the same experience with presently available study material and are looking for a better solution then I suggest that you go for Koncept which is superior to any other study material presently available in the market.

P.S. Please make sure that you only study topics covered in GATE Curriculum and take notes on any topic you study as you cannot refer to a textbook twice.
