From a depth analysis of previous year examinations and other state govt. examinations we get an idea that we want to share with you. For English section, you have to focus on basic English grammar and make a habit of reading an English newspaper(preferably The Hindu) and must read Plinth to paramount by Neetu SinghMathematics section at first you should go through the NCERT books then for practice you can use Quicker maths and Mathematics by R.S.Agarwal. As we all know that GK section has no particular limit, therefore, go through Lucent GK(latest edition) For current affairs make a habit of reading newspaper.

Basic computer:  Introduction to computer like hardware & software, memory & memory units, number system, Microsoft Office(word, excel, ppt)Internet & Networking, DBMS, Programming language, Computer abbreviation, shortcut key and miscellaneous topics(latest in computer & mobile technology).For a basic idea you can follow previous computer operator question papers like

1. Assam Secretariat Computer operator examination solved paper.

2.ASTC computer operator Examination solved paper.

3. Assam Secretariat JAA Computer Proficiency Test question paper.

4.Directorate of Technical Education Computer Proficiency Test question paper.
