Rather than exploring and switching to new learning resources, it is a wise idea to stick to your current resources for preparation at this stage. There is no scarcity of information available on online and offline mediums for CS IT preparation, but relying on a different medium other than your existing one for the preparation will only complicate the process.
With most of the available information repetitive, it is suggested to limit and trust the resources you have at this stage and believe in yourself.
Solving Previous Year’s questions is the best way to revise the CS syllabus and score well in the exam. PYQs help you to analyze the type of questions asked in the exam and the exam pattern. It is recommended to solve the previous year’s questions of at least 4-5 years. By doing so, it will help you to cover the majority of topics of the GATE CS syllabus.
