The following search enables you to find out the relevant information pertaining to economics entrances in India, not only from this site but also from 4 to 5 other sites. These sites are maintained by DSE alumni and career guidance professionals. Information regarding distance coaching and availability of previous question papers are also provided.
Those books which have been mentioned earlier are necessary because they provide the concepts in a really good manner. For any competitive exam, nothing can be sufficient. But, what is necessary is a good grasp over the basics of the subject and try to work out the previous years question papers.
go thru all the comments on this blog..ppl have suggested many books. i guess u could study the main books first n then do the previous year papers to see if u r able to solve them. if u have time after that/ u r unable to do questions on some topic, u could look at other books..
i am appearing for the GIPE entrance examination this week and id like to solve sample question papers from the previous years pls send it to . also i would like to know the scope for actuarial science. could u give me some leads on it??? pls.
You can purchase the previous years DSE question paper from the DSE photocopy shop. The books that you have are sufficient for DSE. More than the books, it is the concept that has to be clear. So work out more problems. There is no single book that caters to the DSE entrance as such.
The recommended textbooks for the entrance tests are mentioned in the DSE handbook; you will find them amidst the comments in this page as well. Focus on these textbooks and cover all the topics. Also, work out the previous entrance question papers. The more time you put it, the better will be your return.
Coaching is only complementary to what your know; so do not depend too much on the coaching. Use the recommended textbooks to learn and know the fundamentals very well. Do not prepare keeping in mind the previous question papers. (That is one thing which i and some of my friends did)
Thanks for your useful comments. Previous papers of Hyderabad University papers can be found on their website, if I am not mistaken. IGIDR papers cannot be got anywhere (same for MSE, I think). Although, it is possible that these question papers might be available in the respective institutes.
