Calculus 101 : Differential Calculus

The Case with Differential Calculus :

Do you like to watch the skateboarding competitions?Where do you find the thrill, in the skating on the flat ground or on the curved part?

Just for a moment…. rewind the skateboarding video that you are watching alongside as you read this article…. and observe the motion of the head of the skateboarder? Do you see that for very short time intervals, the head moves approximately as a straight line? 

Did you know that simple mathematics can help you calculate the tilt of this ‘line’ (something we call the slope)? If not, then differential calculus is the way to go. Finding the slope is one of the basic tasks that differential calculus deals with. That is not all, however. Differential Calculus is a much more diverse and beautiful science which explains a lot about the world. In fact, all the major researchers in the world use calculus extensively. Simply speaking, calculus is the most logical and useful part of mathematics, specially in JEE syllabus. Continue reading Calculus 101 : Differential Calculus

Scoring high in BITSAT with just 10 months of preparation…

How do I prepare in these 10 months? Continue reading Scoring high in BITSAT with just 10 months of preparation…

Windows is going downhill. I’m disappointed, Microsoft

It’s the year 2015. PC users receive a notification from Microsoft the likes of which they have never seen. The notification says – Upgrade to Windows 10. For free! (That was serious marketing, Microsoft).Of course, I didn’t realise back then how Microsoft was playing us all along. With the excitement of a teenager, I quickly borrowed all the laptops in the house, and upgraded them to Windows 10 the day it was launched.

Apple’s Ecosystem : The secret of it’s success !

People are often left confused as to why the “overpriced pieces of crap” Apple products keep selling more and more by the year. (I personally find Apple products of an extremely high quality). After all, it is an honest question. If an Android phone costing 1/3rd of an iPhone can do almost all the basic tasks expected of a smartphone these days, then why do people still buy into Apple products?

Dear Apple haters, Here’s something for you…

Take a tour of the internet, especially tech blogs and YouTube channels. One common feature I have noticed : Hate for Apple runs high. And I fail to understand why? Is it so big an issue as to what device others buy and use?Mostly, people criticise Apple for being overpriced. To justify their argument, they state what all features Androids have. However, all such arguments have a gaping loophole, and that’s what I want to bring out today.

Linux is Over-Hyped… My take on the one and only free OS

Don’t get me wrong here, Linux is a great OS, especially for budding Engineers and Computer Scientists (the sort of people who are expected to know everything about their devices and are expected to tweak them as these). It’s just that the advantages stop right here. Maybe being free could be another advantage. Maybe.

Android isn’t really as great as it is claimed to be. Here’s why…

So, Prepsera Tech starts off with Android here, perhaps the most widely used OS in the entire world (more than even Windows). Almost everyone around seems to have an Android device, and they are pretty defensive about how great it is. Have a look at YouTube, or for that matter any site where people can comment, and you can see how huge the Android community is.

Book review: Objective Physics for medical entrances, by DC Pandey.

One of the most commonly used books by students preparing for medical  entrances is  Objective Physics by DC Pandey.

The book is designed especially on the pattern of NEET . It has a HUGE plethora of questions per chapter arranged in such a manner that it has various levels depending  on the difficulty. It also has a lot of questions which are modifications of previous year questions of Jee Mains. Although the book doesn’t have any subjective problems like HC verma, the questions are far more streamlined as far as NEET preparation is concerned.

How to go about for biology for NEET

Biology, the favorite subject of most NEET aspirants and the subject which accounts for 50% of the paper.  However in my opinion, biology for NEET requires  you to be very choosy about your study sources in order to save time.

First and foremost the most important book for NEET is NCERT biology. In NEET 2017, 78 questions had come directly or indirectly from NCERT biology. So you should know every line of NCERT. In fact, in my own case I lost out on around 4-5 of these questions because my knowledge of NCERT wasn’t perfect.

Inorganic- The better way to prepare

Inorganic. This word is lodged deep inside in the psyche of a JEE Aspirant. As soon as the ears hear an “in-” a chill hurtles down his spine. Relax, inorganic is a wolf in a mammoths skin. The course is not very specific and information available is enough to boggle anyone who attempts to mug it all up. What we need is a reliable information source and then, a method to organize the information so that we can retain it more efficiently. Let’s first talk about the source:-

How to prepare Physics for NEET?

Physics, the subject which is considered to be the nightmare for 99% of NEET aspirants. But is it really true? Most NEET aspirants fear physics because unlike biology, it can not be mugged up. Medical aspirants develop a habit of mugging up and feel that the same thing can be applied to physics. As a result they feel that they have understood the concept at home but can’t apply the same in examinations. This leads to a fear of physics resulting in a vicious cycle.
