MCQs in Computer Science is designed for students who are preparing to take the GATE or GRE exams or even the placement exams given by software firms. GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is an examination that is held all over the country to test the understanding of undergraduate students in fields including engineering and medicine. The GATE exams are conducted every year by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology. This score is used as part of the admission process to post-graduate programs like Masters in Engineering, Master of Technology, Doctor of Philosophy, etc.). Public sector companies also look at the GATE scores to help the recruit the best engineers.
GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is a standardized test that most graduate schools in the United States of America look at as an admission requirement. The Education Testing Service (ETS) created and administers it. Verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing and critical thing skills are measured through this test. There is not specific field that the test is based it. It uses these skills that are developed over the years. The MCQs in Computer Science book prepares its reader for these tests. The book covers essential topics including C Programming, Mathematical Foundations, Automata Theory, Digital Logic and Computer Organization. Over 2000 Multiple Choice Questions have been put into this book with complete solutions, which prepares students for the GATE and other PSU Examinations.
Written by Timothy J Williams who has completed his Masters in Mathematics from IIT, Chennai and his Masters in Computer Science from Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, the book is well round for students preparing for these competitive exams. He was also a professor at the Computer Science Department of Pondicherry Engineering College for 8 years. Other universities he has taught at including California State University, Hayward and DevRy University, Fremont. Currently, he is a consultant at Oracle.
