For UGC NET Computer Science paper target a score of around 40/50 in paper-1 (where 5 questions each from IT,Data Interpretation,unseen passage, logical ability, teaching methodology are asked and they are of avg level and also one can leave 10 questions out of 60). Devote one day per week for First Paper.
Try to score 35 /50 in paper 2 , for this little logical approach is required , crucial subjects for this part are Graph theory, DS ,OS, DBMS, Network, Automata, Digital electronics,
For paper 3 total 75 questions , subjects to focus for paper 3 — > AI, Comp graphics, java, xml, DIP, Fuzzy sets, operation research , Micro-processor , Unix . [ you can leave Op research, microprocessor, DIP]
If u can score 38/75 (although one should aim for attempting 50/75 confidently) will do the job.
For this section cover subjects like AI , DAA, CG, ,SE , Automata ,network , DBMS , OS ,Fuzzy logic/sets, OR.
Analyze all previous year question papers and try to solve them…U will get a feel up-to how much depth you have to drill down…

While studying a subject or topic . keep ready some objective questions from previous year papers / a reliable MCQ book (Timothy Williams( its accuracy>95% but < 99%) and NET/Gate question papers will do )
Maintain separate copy for each Subject ..
You can skip some parts of syllabus in Paper 3 (like compiler , op. research, DIP etc if u have not studied before)….
Don’t skip 1)OS 2)Network 3)DBMS 4)AI 5)CG 6)Automata 7)DS 8)SE 9)Digital
Group Study and discussion will also benefit . Always give ur ans with explanation
Regularity and Revision is the key for final preparation . leave alt least last 15 days for that
Attempt your Exam with ur full energy and positive attitude till end (even if u think one paper went not so good)
Most important thing, “Believe in yourself” never loose patience and hope. You will surely get success if u have worked hard as hard work never goes waste.
