The general aptitude section covers verbal ability, critical reasoning, numerical ability and previous year's general aptitude questions. The engineering mathematics section has been divided into linear algebra, calculus, differential equations, complex variables, probability & statistics and numerical methods whereas the biotechnology section has been divided into 10 chapters namely microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics, process biotechnology, bio-press engineering, plant biotechnology, animal cell, immunology, recombinant DNA technology and bio-informatics.
The chapters cover unit-wise and topic-wise 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.
