Hi friends,
Technical section mainly comprises of questions from BASIC ELECTRONICS and C

What I suggest you is go through BASIC ELECTRONICS once (There is text book available for 1st /2nd semester students studying under VTU syllabus).You will come to know about type of questions appearing by looking at following questions.
