GGSIPU – Exams : Roadmap for II Semester

So, It’s that time of the year again. Where we open our books for the first time in the semester, with no clue where to even begin and I am here to help you crack GGSIPU Exams for II Semester.

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 2nd 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 have divided each subject into Notes, Books, Question Papers (PYQ) and the best approach to deal with the material.

GGSIPU Exams Sem I Subjects:

1. ITP (Introduction to Programming)

a) Notes:

1. Unit 1 and Unit 2
2. Unit 1 to Unit 4

b) Books:

1. Let Us C
2. Solutions for Let Us C

c) Question Papers:

1. Link 1
2. Link 2

d) Best Approach

  1. In ITP, the best strategy is to completely solve and study Let Us C by Yashvant Kanetkar.
  2. Thoroughly read all the previous year questions, don’t rely on the solutions given in the booklet (Akash).
  3. Keep the notes for quick revision but primarily rely on Let Us C.
