Step 2: Solve Previous Year Papers & Preparation Flow

  • Start with NCERT Books for Computer Science
  • Look at the syllabus for Computer Science and Applications - NTA NET
  • Check out the extensive booklist available at Examrace for Computer Science and Applications Subject
  • You can also refer:
