Paper II

The Tier II will be consisting of only the technical papers and the questions asked will be of a descriptive type. The syllabus of those technical papers is the same as that of Tier I but the way of preparation should be different. The elaborate preparation of each and every topic is required.

Previous year question papers

These question papers would help you in finding the pattern of the questions asked. Try to solve as many questions as possible and modify your preparation accordingly.

The previous year question papers are available in the following links

Books to be referred

Books form the most important part of any exam preparation strategy. But studying a lot of books on any subject without any proper plan would kill the precious time. So, it becomes essential to select the books in an appropriate manner. Some of the books recommended are given below:

a) General Awareness – NCERT books for basics and refer newspapers like The Hindu for the current affairs. Some books like Indian Polity by LakshmiKanth, Indian Economy by Ramesh Singh can be added as the reference books.

b) General Intelligence and Reasoning – Fast Track Objective Arithmetic Book, A Modern Approach to Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning – RS Agarwal, Objective General English by SP Bakshi, Quantitative Aptitude by RS Agarwal and Objective General English by RS Agarwal.

c) Civil Engineering – Through Objective Type Questions by S.P Gupta and S.S Gupta, SSC: Junior Engineers Exam Guide by R. Gupta, solved question papers released by some publication house like Made Easy Publication, Ramesh Publishing house will help in making the preparation easier.

d) Electrical Engineering – Objective Electrical Technology by V.K. Mehta and Rohit Mehta, Question bank in Electrical Engineering by JB Gupta, Objective questions on Electrical Engineering released by Satya Prakashan Publication.

e) Mechanical Engineering – Mechanical Engineering for competitions by R.K. Jain, SSC JE Mechanical Self Engineering guide published by Kiran publication, Objective questions on Mechanical engineering by GK Publications.

Mock test

The mock tests are essential to improve your speed and accuracy. The candidates should take every mock test seriously and attempt it as like writing the actual exam. The time limit needs to be strictly followed. It is also required to analyse the results of every mock test and learn the mistakes. Try to correct the mistakes in the forthcoming test. In this way, you can improve your chances to get through in this exam. The mock tests are available in the following links.
