GGSIPU Exams  :  Roadmap for I Semester

Need A Roadmap? Your guide to ace GGSIPU 1st Semester Exams!

Hello!

Here I am again, with another roadmap, this time for the freshers just into the college and preparing for I Semester Exams in GGSIPU, I know lots of numerous things must be running inside your heads.

  1. What to study?
  2. What isn’t necessary for sessionals?
  3. Which topic should be given more importance?

But fret not, all it takes is a smart and decisive strategy to crack the GGSIPU Exams. Below is a plan I executed during my time in 1st semester. You don’t need to follow it blindly, read the approach and implement in your own way. In the end, it’s you who takes a decision whether to study the whole night or ace the exams in the most comfortable manner. (I was aiming for upgradation from ECE during my time, so that required a bit more hard work than usual, which ultimately was successful, So I hope this strategy of mine helps you all.)

I have divided each subject into Notes, Books, Question Papers (PYQ) and the best approach to deal with the material.

General, Points to remember for GGSIPU Exams

Before moving onto specific subjects, I just want to give some common guidelines applicable to GGSIPU exams in general:

  • Always keep in mind the important terms relating to that question, if its theory related. See if it can be associated with a flowchart or a diagram or any information that can be pictorially presented.
  • Write the answer in points and always try to use the main terms related to that question.
  • If you come up a bit short, try to relate it with other concepts. More often than not it’s the starting of your answer which presents your case for marks. Once you show that you understand the question and have come up with the solution, the middle part of answer is just there for extending more information.
  • While attempting logical questions try to keep all steps on the paper, don’t skip basic steps that you think are obvious because each step is important to fetch you marks, and if at some point your answer goes wrong, evaluation is done with per step so you can still get marks up to to the point you’re right.

Guide for different subjects

1. FOC (Fundamentals of Computing)

a) Notes:

  1. Unit 1
  2. Unit 2 (Refer Complete Notes)
  3. Unit 3
  4. Unit 4

Complete Notes

b) Books:

  1. Peter Norton

c) Question Papers:

  1. Source 1

d) Best Approach

  • In FOC, the best strategy is to completely study notes provided during your classes or the above e-notes.
  • Thoroughly read all the previous year questions, don’t rely on the solutions given in the booklet (Akash). Read questions given in Akash and find their answers in notes/book.

Important Subject

2. AMI (Applied MathematicsI)

a) Notes:

I personally don’t believe in notes for Maths, Only thing I referred were the books.

b) Books:

  1. VP Mishra (Buy it, useful till 4th Sem)
  2. BS Grewal

c) Question Papers:

  1. Source 1

d) Video Tutorials:

e) Best Approach:

  • Follow the book well. Most preferably VP Mishra (Tailor-made for GGSIPU Exams) but BS Grewal is good as well though requires more time than VP.
  • Refer the video tutorials to understand a specific topic if needed in detail. Requires time from your side but it’s well worth it.
  • Mathematics exam is easy and predictable, never shy away from practicing questions and don’t skip any topic.

Important Subject

3. API (Applied PhysicsI)

a) Notes:

  1. Unit 1 | Unit 1
  2. Unit 2 | Unit 2 | Unit 2
  3. Unit 3 | Unit 3
  4. Unit 4 | Unit 4 | Unit 4 | Unit 4

b) Books:

  1. H.K Malik & A.K Singh (Refer or Buy if you can)

c) Question Papers:

d) Best Approach:

  • AP-I is all about sticking to the syllabus and covering every aspect of it.
  • Notes are a must and sometimes enough before heading towards book (if you really need to).
  • Try to solve or read PYQ (Previous year questions) and practice derivations.
  • Some of the notes here are divided into parts so do refer all of them.

4. ET (Electrical Technology)

a) Notes:

  1. Unit 1
  2. Unit 2
  3. Unit 3
  4. Unit 4

Complete Notes:

b) Books:

  1. Source 1

c) Question Papers:

d) Best Approach:

  • ET demands hard work from your side, the content above will help though smart work needs to be done here, practice all questions and try to make short summaries of Unit 4.
  • Try to solve or read PYQ (Previous year questions).

5. HVE (Human Values and Ethics)

a) Notes:

  1. Source 1
  2. Source 2

b) Books:

  1. Source 1

c) Question Papers:

d) Best Approach:

  • HVE just comes in sessionals, it’s just your natural instincts that you write in your answer sheet.
  • Just have a look at the notes (a glance only).
  • No need to spend much time on it. I didn’t, I wrote what I felt about the topics.

6. Applied Chemistry

a) Notes:

  1. Unit 1 | Unit 1
  2. Unit 2 | Unit 2
  3. Unit 3 | Unit 3
  4. Unit 4 | Unit 4 | Unit 4

b) Books:

  1. Source 1

c) Question Papers:

d) Best Approach:

  • Notes will be your best friend in Applied Chemistry, even though there is a lot to be studied in this subject, the good thing is notes cover all that can come.
  • Book is good for reference material.
  • Previous Year Ques will be important so go through them carefully.

7. Manufacturing Process

a) Notes:

  1. Unit 1 | Unit 1
  2. Unit 4

Complete Notes:

b) Books:

  1. Source 1 | Source 2

c) Question Papers:

d) Best Approach:

  • MP is not a tough subject, Topics within the notes are important, Cupola is a recurring question
  • PYQ’s coupled with notes are the best way to study it.
