How to prepare for the UGC NET Computer Science?

I qualified the UGC NET in Computer Science in December, 2018.
Well, I was also in the same dilemma when I was preparing for the UGC NET  Computer Science and GATE Computer Science.
For preparing well and thoroughly, You have to prepare yourself  according to the previous years question papers. Don't get bother about the syllabus provided by the UGC or GATE administration.
In this post i will share the strategy you need for the second paper that is computer science subject.
For the first paper, You can follow this link." Tips for the first paper. "

Steps that you must follow:

  1. Download and take a print out of the syllabus.
  2. Start reading standard books for the all the different subjects. If you don't have books, you can download the eBooks from the internet. Below i have provide the sources of all the ebooks from where you download the eBooks.
  3. If you are not good at reading the books like me, You can study each topic from the YouTube according to the syllabus.  Make sure you side by side also prepare hand written notes. It is better to maintain different notebook for the different subject, because hand written helps us at the revision time.
  4. Now it is the time to solve previous years papers. You can purchase a book provide by the Made Easy which contains all the previous year solved questions. You can also download the eBook. Here is the link provided.
  5. Now it is time to solve previous years gate papers. You can get Gate question from
  6. Now more and more revision is required only. Keep revising the hand written material and keep solving previous year questions.
Here you can download the PDF file containing all the previous years questions with explanations.

You can download the PDF ( eBooks) for the different subjects.

When you think that you are fully prepared, the following terms must be at your fingers. I wrote all these terms as an index when i was preparing. It helped me to revise the topics very easily. I have written these terms in short form. The students who are well prepared will get these terms very easily.
