While some of us may find digital electronics easy to study, a lot of us may agree that the parts about bipolar and unipolar transistors is definitely mind-boggling!
Here are a few last-minute tips that might help you do your best in the Electronics exam. All the best!
1) Circuit diagrams first, everything else later
Now circuit diagrams may seem easy at first, but try writing a block/circuit diagram on your own and you might miss out on a few tiny details. So make sure that you’ve practised the circuit diagrams thoroughly which will save precious time during the exam.
2) Problems? Not a problem!
The next important thing is to be thorough with the problems. Most of the question papers have the simplest problems and with good practice, you could save a lot of time with them too. The more time you save here, the more time you get to properly frame the answers which gives it an edge over other papers (remember the examiner has a lot of papers to correct!).
3) Stick to the rules
Many of the students find Boolean algebra troublesome as they spend too much time on simplifying them. Just remember the basic rules such as the De Morgan’s laws and the laws of OR/AND and look for a pattern. This way you will be able to simply the expression in no time.
4) Previous year papers to the rescue
Most of you would already be referring to previous year papers for your preparations. If not, it’s still not too late. There are a few standard questions such as derivation of voltage divider rule or working of Op-amp as integrator, differentiator etc. and careful observation of these question papers will give you an idea of questions that you could expect.
5) One mark questions are the real deal
This is when you are confident with the long answers. One mark questions can be mastered by skimming through the entire book. That seems like quite a bit of reading, but in the end, you will get an idea about where you need to work.
And as always, keep learning!
