    Preparation Tips

    The following are simple preparation tips to score well in the GATE - Electronics and Communication Engineering.

    • Many people feel that, solving many problems will give better rank or top rank, but it is not really true. Having conceptual clarity is the only technique for scoring well in GATE, with least effort, but it demands prior understanding of MATHEMATICS and to some extent, Physics.
    • At IESGATE.COM, by keeping above point in mind, we cover all the foundation Mathematics and Physics first before we actually go to Engineering. This gave to many of our students to score very high marks in GATE.
