Preparation Strategy for Engineering Mathematics for GATE 2018

 Our experts have devised a topic-wise strategy which will assist you in GATE 2018 preparation.

Let’s have a few excerpts of the strategy......

  • Linear Algebra: You must focus on topics like Matrix Algebra and Eigenvalue problems as questions from these topics are frequently asked in the exam. Focus on topics like Properties of Eigenvalues and relation between eigenvalue of two matrices. Concepts like Basis vectors and span of basis vectors could be skipped as these topics are absolutely unimportant from GATE perspective.
  • Calculus: Solve maxima and minima problems and focus on the topic of vector calculus. You must be thoroughly aware of the properties and basic concepts of calculus in order to solve calculus questions successfully. Dedicate ample amount of time in studying Gradient, Divergence, Curl and Vector Integral theorems.
  • Probability and Statistics: This is a highly scoring topic as the questions do not involve any complex calculations. In Statistics, focus on Mean, Median and Mode concepts and Coefficient of Correlation. You must lay emphasis on Baye’s Theorem, Random variables and Poisson’s Distribution in probability section.
  • Numerical Methods: You must practice equation solving using Newton-Raphson and Bisection method and numerical integration techniques. You must memorize the formulas for Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson’s Rule. You must be proficient in calculator use to conduct recursion speedily.
