The style, quality and content of the Solutions for previous GATE Questions of Mechanical Engineering, will encourage the reader, especially the student whether above average, average or below average to learn the concept and answer the question in the subject without any tension. However it is the reader who should conform this and any comments and suggestions would be pleasantly received by the Academy.
The student should not miss to go through the solutions for conventional questions asked prior to 2003, as more concepts are brought out in them that will facilitate to answer the numerical answer type questions, Common data and Linked answer questions, if any, easily.
The student is advised to solve the problems without referring to the solutions. The student has to analyze the given question carefully, identify the concept on which the question is framed, recall the relevant equations, find out the desired answer, verify the answer with the final key such as (a), (b), (c), (d), then go through the hints to clarify his answer. This will help to face numerical answer type questions, better. The student is advised to have a standard text book ready for reference to strengthen the related concepts, if necessary. The student is advised not to write the solution steps in the space around the question. By doing so, he loses an opportunity of effective revision.
As observed in the GATE – 16 and thereafter, number of sets may be possible, being online exams. Hence, don’t skip any subject. All are the equally important.
It is believed that this book is a Valuable aid to the students appearing for competitive exams like IES, JTO, DRDO, ISRO and Other PSUs. This book can also be used by fresh lecturers in Engineering in improving their Concepts.
Mathematics & General Aptitude Previous Questions & Solutions of GATE of all branches are available in a separate booklet.
With best wishes to all those who wish to go through the following pages.
