swati vermaThank you Sir. You are talking about material of coaching institutes.. could you please suggest some names also?

like material of MADE EASY PUBLICATION or IES ACADEMY or GATE FORUM'S booklets ...

they will give you the idea about the standard questions used to come in exams ....

hope that it will help you .....

and don't call me sir...i am just in third year and also preparing for GATE 2010 in mechanical .....
