How to prepare for IES with ECE Stream

How to prepare for IES/ESE with Telecommunications stream (Download this file here)

Let us discuss with subject wise. Here we have many books for each subject. But by experience we are going to give one book for each subject/topic. Our intention is not to say other books are not recommended, but we are recommending these. We took old question papers analysis, and depending on that we give preference to each.

Paper-I

1. Material Science and Components:

Book: Material Science by Indulkar. All over one book is sufficient for this Material science subject as marks coming are less. Even we can leave this subject for Descriptive paper.

For objective: They decreased importance of this subject from last years. So, we can expect around 10 to 12 questions from this area.

2. Physical Electronics, Electronic Devices and ICs:

Books: Theory from Milliman & Halkies Black Pad, and Problems from Sedra & Smith. For Integrated Circuits (ICs)- Pucknell.

For Objective: By seeing below we can expect around 20 marks.

2. Network Theory:

Books: Hayt & Kemmerly for topics like KCL,KVL, Nodal, Mesh, 1st order and 2nd order transients.

Van Valkenberg for topics Two port parameters, Laplace Transform Techniques,

Chakravarthi for topics Theorems, Mutual Inductance, Graph Theory etc.,

For Objective: By seeing the following table we can expect 25 to 30 questions.

For Descriptive: As importance is varying between 40 to 80 marks, we should not leave this subject also. As this is completely problematic subject, we need to practice a lot. Else we may do silly mistakes and may lose more marks.

3. Electro Magnetic Theory:

Books: Sadique for Electric and Magnetic Fields for both theory and problems,

Jordan & Ballman for Transmission lines for problems and theory also.

Antennas K D Prasad. As formulae is only important here. Formulae like Power Equation, Standing Wave Equn, Reflection, Aperture, Lengh of Antennas, Radiation Resistance, Power Radiated ,Antenna Arrays are important.

For Objective: We can expect 18 to 25 questions from this area. As subject is problematic and they are not allowing calculator means, they give more formulae based questions.

By observing all the subjects in Paper-I, we should study each subject for Objective and EDC & ICs, Signals & Systems, Network Theory, Measurements subjects are more important.

Paper –II

1. Analog Electronic Circuits: More problems will come compared to theory. So, we can directly solve problems and leave theory also. Milliman & Halkies yellow pad need not be studied.

Books: Sedra & Smith or Boylsted for Problems.

For Objective: We can expect around 20 questions from this area.

  16. @Asif,
    If you can try to motivate others else least donot discourage aspirants. Entering into IES is not at all impossible task but may be difficult one for one who donot know basics.
