Here are some very important Tips for UGC NTA NET Computer Science and Applications exam preparation:
Make Time Table for Preparation
First of all, make a time table according to this timetable divide each topic week wise. You can also download a free preparation schedule for NTA NET Exam preparation from DigiiMento Website.
During the preparation, make proper notes for every topic with the summary.
If possible in your time table give an extra column which is about whether you completed this topic or not as it will help you decide later which topics to revise during the revision phase.
Keep your sources trustworthy and limited. The NTA NET syllabus is very vast, and you can not refer many different sources as you will be following the time constraint. So it’s essential to know which sources you can refer and stick to them.
Step 2: Solve Previous Year NTA UGC NET Papers, State Eligibility Test (SET) Papers and GATE Papers.
