NPTEL Videos And GATE Civil Engg. (CE) Exam Preparation
- NPTEL Videos are great videos for learning a subject. They have been made by the best teachers in India, and are very detailed.
However, in our opinion, they are only partly useful for GATE Civil Engg. (CE) exam prepararion.
- The NPTEL Videos were not made from the perspective to coach for GATE Civil Engg. (CE). They were made to teach/explain a subject. It is similar to subject books written by good authors. They teach the entire subject.
- But GATE Civil Engg. (CE) is focused on a few parts of the subject and is more application oriented.
- So you should ideally use some GATE Civil Engg. (CE) focused study material or Video Lectures to prepare for GATE Civil Engg. (CE). In parts of the subject where you may want to go in depth, you may refer to NPTEL Videos.
