Extensive knowledge and revision of the concepts covered under the GATE 2017 curriculum is demanded for preparation for the examination which primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. GATE is an all India examination administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of National Coordination Board – GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India.
GATE tests the in-depth knowledge and practical knowledge of varied concepts. We at Arihant understand the needs of the students which require comprehensive chapterwise study for in-depth understanding followed by thorough practice of the syllabi to master the concepts.
The present GATE tutor for GATE Civil Engineering has been divided into three sections namely General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and Civil Engineering, each sub-divided into number of chapters. The General Aptitude section covers Verbal Ability, Critical Reasoning and Numerical Ability. The Engineering Mathematics section has been divided into Linear Algebra, Calculus, Differential Equations, Complex Variables, Probability & Statistics, Numerical Methods and Transform Theory whereas the Civil Engineeringsection has been divided into twelve chapters namelyMechanics, Structure Analysis, Concrete Structure, Steel Structure, Geotechnical Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Hydraulics, Engineering Hydrology, Water Resource Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Surveying.
The chapters cover unitwise and topicwise collection of theory and question answers. The whole coverage of the syllabi in the book has been kept identical to the format of the exam including relevant study material and variety of questions with their complete solutions. Each topic in the book has been categorized into numerous sub divisions. Also each unit ends with Intro Exercise for practicing the concepts discussed in the unit. The exercises contain questions as per the GATE pattern i.e. 1 mark questions, 2 marks questions and common data & linked answer questions. The books contain Unitwise Numerical Answer Type Questions and newly added topics in questions. The book also contains last five years’ (2012-2016) solved papers of original online GATE Civil Engineeringto give the aspirants an insight into the trends of questions asked in GATE Examination. This book contains focused study material for General Aptitude and Engineering Mathematics. For final and thorough revision, fiveMock Tests for GATE Civil Engineeringwith full solutions have also been given in the book.
As the book contains ample study and practice material, it for sure will help aspirants achieve success in the upcoming GATE 2017Civil EngineeringExam.
