Careers 360: When did you start your TS EAMCET preparation? Tell us something about your preparation strategy and daily routine for TS EAMCET?
Yash Garg: I did not undergo any special preparations for TS EAMCET as I was preparing for JEE Advanced. All that I learnt while preparing for JEE Advanced helped me in to do well in TS EAMCET. One of the important things for TS EAMCET is having formulae on finger tips, so I revised formulae from Arihant's Handbook two to three days before the final exam. Another important thing is speed; you need to complete 160 questions in 180 minutes and for that one needs to be fast.
Careers 360: Was there a difference in the preparation strategy in the last months of TS EAMCET considering that the board exams also are during this period? How did you manage preparation for both?

Careers 360: Are there any special books that you feel have helped with your TS EAMCET preparation? Are the school text books adequate for preparing for TS EAMCET and Class XII?

Careers 360: How was the TS EAMCET exam different from JEE Main? How was AP EAMCET different from TS EAMCET?
Yash Garg: Well, TS EAMCET exam was different from JEE Main in the level of difficulty. No doubt the latter was much more difficult. AP EAMCET was similar to TS EAMCET, but it’s just that between writing an exam for the first time and a second time, there is a lot of difference and you learn from your mistakes.
Careers 360: Did you face any problem during the TS EAMCET examination? Which subject was the easiest and which was the toughest? What do you think is a tough thing to manage during the exam?
Yash Garg: I did not face any particular problem during the preparation. The toughest subject I felt was Maths and easiest was Chemistry. The toughest thing to manage is time. And to overcome it, I started with Maths, then Chemistry and lastly Physics. This is an unorthodox method but it worked for me.
Careers 360: What do you think are the key factors behind your stupendous success in TS EAMCET?
Yash Garg: It is all about time management and only thing one needs to worry about is that. Also, that we need to go through NCERT or Telugu Akademi books such that we get perfect in the subjects.

Yash Garg: The biggest inspiration in my life is Steve Jobs. The way he brought about a revolution in the smartphone industry, the ups and downs he has gone through but still managed to come out at the top has always inspired me. I have always looked up to him and will keep doing so.
