NPTEL Videos And GATE Computer (CS/IT) 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 Computer (CS/IT) exam prepararion.
- The NPTEL Videos were not made from the perspective to coach for GATE Computer (CS/IT). 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 Computer (CS/IT) is focused on a few parts of the subject and is more application oriented.
- So you should ideally use some GATE Computer (CS/IT) focused study material or Video Lectures to prepare for GATE Computer (CS/IT). In parts of the subject where you may want to go in depth, you may refer to NPTEL Videos.
