Vote of Thanks

The ideas expressed below are not all mine. During my Interview preparation I took personal guidance from Mr. Vikas Bhardwaj (my History teacher) and so while penning down the article below, I have borrowed heavily from his teachings. Similarly I have also expressed many ideas that I have borrowed from Bansal Sir (at Abhimanu, Chandigarh). I must thank both of them for all their help and support. I will try and reply to some queries that you post but please bear with the delay in my responses.

Interview is a test of personality and not of knowledge yet most of the time candidates prepare for enhancing their knowledge base and totally neglect their personality aspect. It is obvious that personality can’t be built in a day but it can certainly be molded in a short time span.Your aim should be to highlight the best aspects of your personality. Interview is the final step before you achieve your dream- DO NOT MESS IT UP. Read the rest of this entry »

Vote of Thanks

Ms. Surabhi is one of the few people who are true at heart and say what is in their minds. She specially called me up to appreciate my efforts in the building up of this blog for the benefits of aspirants. At that time, I requested her to take some time out and write a post on Preparation of History Optional subject for which I had already received many requests from the readers. She readily agreed and responded promptly by emailing me the write-up within 24 hours. I was so touched and moved by her enthusiasm to help that I have no words to thank her enough. I feel her tips would be very useful for all the candidates especially because authentic sources for guidance in History are limited. I thank Ms. Surabhi on behalf of all the candidates once again for her efforts. She would try and reply to some queries that you post but please bear with the delay in her responses.

Strategy For Electrical Engineering

In Uncategorized on June 21, 2012 at 23:30

For Electrical Engineering, I personally feel that Prakash Rajpurohit Sir’s (AIR-2 in CSE-2009) blog has all the required information that one needs to know. In fact that is the main reason why I am so late in writing a post on Electrical Engineering. I did not feel the need to provide any extra information other than what was mentioned on his blog.
