Evanescence : One of the most eligible Linkin Park successor

A lot of you must have heard of Linkin Park, the famous rock band which brought us new genres of music like Nu-Metal and Electric-Rock. While so many of their fans keep swooning about the amazing vocal quality of Chester Bennington (their lead vocalist) or the superb flow of Mike Shinoda (another vocalist, mainly doing raps and slower songs), a lot of people just seem to miss the point of Linkin Park. Just listen to their songs and try to feel the instrumental flow in the background. Feel the emotions conveyed by the music. While you’re at it, take a look at the lyrics. Try to feel what the lyrics mean and what they imply. Put yourself into the position of the singer… into the position of the person who is feeling all that is mentioned in the lyrics. Keep doing it for some time, and you shall be able to understand Linkin Park much better.

Bitcoin & Crypto-currency : My views

Lately, crypto-currency has been a huge topic of debate, and rightly so. We have been seeing prices of various “new” currencies on the rise : Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and so on. There are tons of them, with each being super volatile. While economists all over the world shun this new form of banking, I personally feel that their judgment call is one too soon. Also, I feel that while this may not be the “next big thing” as it exists in its current form, crypto-currency shall be the future of banking. Pretty strong views, huh? Read on to find out why I have such views.

Another amazing one by Harish…. With some edits from my side as well. Normal font is Harish’s part while my edits are in Italics.

Before starting FIITJEE GMP, keep in mind that it has questions which are generally 50% tougher than the normal JEE-Advanced questions on an average.

KVPY 2017 Results Declared

Everyone please check out the KVPY 2017 Results at kypy.iisc.ernet.in

As expected, the cutoffs have been super low, with 45 for Stream SA and 53 for Stream SX. That is damn low guys. I hope you guys cleared it. Please do comment if you have. And if you haven’t, then ping me as well at prepsera@gmail.com

I will try and address your difficulties and if we can give it a better shot next time, it would be really amazing. Hope you guys really did it well.

And those who didn’t manage the cut, please don’t worry. It’s just another exam and won’t be affecting your JEE/NEET performance in any way. So relax and make sure that you take treats from those who have cleared it. Other than that, don’t be dismayed. All will be well and there is nothing you can’t do just because you couldn’t clear this one exam.

So, everybody just be happy and motivated and feel good. Christmas is just around the corner and it would be amazing to just see you enjoy 🙂

Cheers,

Aakash

Many of you must be wondering as to how it feels after you have attempted your JEE paper (or for that matter, any exam you value or any event that is worth it). Here’s a small recap of my experience to just let you know one of the feelings you might have after giving your paper. It’s all subjective and so varies from person to person. Would love others to collaborate on this one. Here goes….

How can I prepare for Trigonometry for JEE?

Another great article by Harish. This one focuses on how he studied for trigonometry and what he feels is an optimal way to prepare. I have duly edited the post along with a few personal comments from my preparation. All of my comments are in Italics.

-Aakash

If you want to study trigonometry, here is my method in detail, in proper order as it were.

  • Write, write and just write down all the important formulae in a seperate note book.
  • Read, read and read all the formulae until and unless you get a complete grip over each and every formula. Essentially, this is just the way you would memorise other things. So if you have an alternate memorisation technique, then that works too.
  • Solve, solve and completely solve all sorts of sums that are up for grab. And this definitely helps. Trigonometry is a chapter where practice is a very crucial factor.
  • Draw, draw and always draw a triangle irrespective of what the question is. This is a nice interesting approach to trigonometry. However if you have gotten the hang of the thing and are able to visualise without drawing triangles, then you can and should just do this step mentally to save precious time.
  • Think, think and stretch the limits of your brain and think as to which formula needs to be applied for which sum. Ideally speaking, there can be multiple formulae and approaches to trigonometry questions. However some formulae provide easier and quicker solutions. Practice more so that you are able to recognise these patterns.

Trigonometry is a chapter where application of formula is really important for which it all boils down to solving of sums.

Coming to the books, I used only Cengage book apart from FIITJEE material,and it is pretty good (infact all Cengage Maths books are pretty good (I haven’t tried Calculus though)). About SN Loney, though I bought that book, I never used it. Totally your choice.

Here are the book links. Please support Prepsera by buying from these links. This matters and helps in keeping the site alive.

Hope it helps.

All the best!
