#3 GATE Tutor 2017 Mechanical Engineering 



Extensive knowledge and revision of the concepts covered under the GATE 2017 curriculum is demanded for preparation for the examination which primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of various undergraduate subjects in engineering and science. GATE is an all India examination administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of National Coordination Board – GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India.

GATE tests the in-depth knowledge and practical knowledge of varied concepts. We at Arihant understand the needs of the students which require comprehensive chapterwise study for in-depth understanding followed by thorough practice of the syllabi to master the concepts.

The present GATE tutor for GATE Mechanical Engineering has been divided into three sections namely General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering, each sub-divided into number of chapters. The General Aptitude section covers Verbal Ability, Critical Reasoning and Numerical Ability. The Engineering Mathematics section has been divided into Linear Algebra, Calculus, Differential Equations, Complex Variables, Probability & Statistics, Numerical Methods and Transform Theory whereas the Mechanical Engineering section has been divided into 11 chapters namely Engineering Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Theory of Machines, Machine Design, Fluid Mechanics, Heat & Mass Transfer, Thermodynamics, Power Engineering, Material Science, Manufacturing Science and Industrial Engineering.

As the book contains ample study and practice material, it for sure will help aspirants achieve success in the upcoming GATE 2017Mechanical EngineeringExam.
