Step 1: Get the Syllabus.
Step 2: Get all the books prescribed in the syllabus, nevermind the form(solid, electronic) in which you get them.
Step 3: Sit in the first bench and try to make (little) sense atleast in every class.
Step 4: Aim to study 7 units per subject.
Step 5: Have a look at what the seniors studied.
Step 6: Study the seniors portion if possible.
Step 7: Study units which you are most clueless about. Trick here is if you cant make much sense of it neither can the paper setters. The Questions are almost always direct or repetitive.
Step 8: Read old solved Question papers.
Step 9: Pray that the above 8 steps are enough.
Step 10: Sleep a lot less during the 2 weeks of exam and dont panic on the last day.
p.s. if you followed the above 10 steps and are still not confident of getting a distinction. well Congrats! You’re a student of VTU!
Its at an end. The 6th sem and with it the third year. Things just went by so fast. Just some time back it was like the beginning of the year and no its all done. The memories remain, they fill up my Facebook albums and overflow everywhere. By far this is the most memorable semester in more ways than one. Weah , i havent been blogging about it all. So you people out here may not know all that been going on. Sorry couldnt helps it.
Where do i go next? thats the big question that remains now. What does the future hold? Placements have never been on my mind and there aren’t any to talk about anyway thanks to recession. Whats next? undecided i say. Entrances stare back at me yet again. Maybe i ll take the plunge and settle down for another 2 years of “higher” studies. Maybe thats the easy way out. Cushioning yourself to launch into the big wide world out yonder. So studies will have to start this hols. Only time will tell if they bear fruit.

Exams begin on 23rd.
Well its no secret but i did join CAT classes at TIME last Sunday. Me and Raison(thank god i have company) decided to start taking our future plans seriously. Although an MBA is not what i have in mind maybe it may fit in with the great plan ahead. There’s this group of my friends who are gonna write all this higher studies exams within the next year. Placements have kinda dried up and everyone’s looking for an escape hatch. Its gonna be tough for our batch of people but we are the ones who are the most active in college so i think we can really get outta this quite okay. Survival they say is only of the fittest 😉
We also got permission to start a Quiz Club in College, a first. There are no clubs in College but we hope to make that change starting with the Quiz club 🙂
Pramod had told me about doing something like this and finally they executed and uploaded it..Nicely done 🙂 for a photo slide show that is.

P.S. yeah and Happy New Year.. and my Holidays just started today so about one month of lazying around to look forward too.. oh and a LOT of tags to take up *sigh*
The first hint that im coming back to normal..
The insanity rings the bell,
throwing away all things formal..
The cure works i can tell..
yup chapsticks and chopsticks with gay people thrown in for good measure was one of the most recent crazy conversations that i’ve had in a long time.. on sms atleast. The two of you who read my blog would have realised it 🙂
Exams coming up with dsp and lic labs on 10th and 12th. The End semesters are also scheduled from 18th-31st. On the brighter side.. i’ ll be getting the New Years!!! There’s lot left to study but the cure has been working..
Cya People.. i may be back with exam updates.
p.s. WordPress is looking kewl!
yes.. there’s been CS, SS and finally HDL today. CS was ok-Nyquist saved me. SS , too easy. for the first time in engineering i actually wrote all 8 Qs !!! guess it will also be the last one. HDL was Boring. just filled with bad theory Qs asking examples every single place and how to program Adders in vhdl and verilog. half adder, full adder , full adder using half adder.. Sheesh! i wanted to just go to sleep there. The weather was almost right for that too.
Today was the All India Bandh called by the BJP to protest against the Amarnath shrine land controversy. It had mixed response i guess. Mangalore stayed pretty closed down since its under the BJP government. Bangalore didnt have too many problems. Infosys stayed close today i heard. The worst thing was the part that we had Exams today. The morning saw all 2nd year engineering students trying to catch their respective college buses as there were no private buses running. after exams at 12:30 we had a special bus trip back to mangalore. About 100 of us crammed in there somehow for the nearly 2 hour journey back. Its fun when your around friends, on a empty stomach as you skipped lunch to cram urself into the middle, trying to get a decent footing or perhaps even hanging on for dear life in some cases 😀
thats the last paper of mathematics in engineering. There wont be any more to give you that sense of relief. A subject you can take for granted and chill out with, which almost everyone studies with Music blaring or iPods plugged in. i didnt do all that for this semester exam though. thought i will study it seriously 🙂 well the paper turned out easy and i was out REALLY early; like at 12:05, after attempting 6/8 questions.
That s my personal Best for any exam 😀
