Here are a few books that I came across during my stay at IIT. These have been recommended to me by a senior of mine. These books have received acclaim from a lot of students and I feel it’s best to share the knowledge.
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.
Let’s face it, the PC market has been falling steadily. With the advent of bigger phones, great tablets (mostly iPad), better cloud services and a plethora of apps available on mobiles, the technology market has been seeing a trend of declining laptop sales.
Apple created headlines with it’s event yesterday, with the unveiling of the iPhone 8/8Plus and the gorgeous iPhone X. However, the biggest change is not what can be seen from the outside. Apple has created a whole new era in mobile computing with it’s A11 chip, also introduced at the keynote. At a moment when the latest and greatest of Snapdragon’s processors couldn’t manage to keep up with Apple’s A10X Fusion chip, Apple announced the A11 chip to be present in all the future iPhones. That’s a huge leap forward.
While Physics has been the branch of science that has helped usher the humans in an era of technology, it might turn out to be the very reason that our technological advancements get stalled. They might get stalled temporarily, or permanently. No one knows. And no one thinks about it.
And this applies to all upcoming exams : JEE, BITSAT, Other Engineering Exams, anything that has gone the way of online exams. There is a very simple reason for it : Developing a habit. Pen and paper based exams are second nature to most of us for the simple reason that we have been giving such examinations all our lives. However, think back to the time when you had your first examination… Didn’t it feel awkward and something out of your comfort zone? Well, that’s because you had no habit of doing it.
Of late, we all have been receiving notifications that JEE-Advanced is going to be a completely online exam from 2018. How exactly is this going to affect 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.
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.
Often we come across this term – Sandboxing. So what exactly is it? More importantly, how does it affect you and why should you even bother?
If you are an iOS user, you must have often complained about how it takes time to access files from two different apps or how you cannot download files to your iDevice or how you cannot tweak the system settings, and so on. That’s because of sandboxing.
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.
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.
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. 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:-
So yog must have seen at our Facebook page that Prepsera is going to be featuring technology related articles as well. So, yeah… It’s gonna be a big step forward for us as we try and provide you with interesting reads in the awesome field of technology. Maybe just to provide you a spark for tech. After all, for all those who want to do something in the future. After all, technology rules us all, works for us all and is present everywhere.
