I successfully completed 4 years in GO( feeling awesome). Actually I didn’t knew about GO when I was preparing for GATE’17 in 2016. One fine day after GATE’18, I’m just checking the questions (curious about how was the paper) and searching for answers which aren’t solved by me, the first link shown by google for the 2-3 questions is GO. After that I realized that, Gate overflow is especially for CSE gate aspirants. Maintaining something is more harder than Initiating it, that too as a free service - kudos to @Arjun sir for maintaining it over the years. Most beatiful things in Go are discussions. Those are really made my misconceptions clear. Aspirtants try to involve in healthy discussions as much as possible, clear your misconceptions and share your knowledge. I didn’t follow standard books, after starting reading books, my anaytical skills also improved as a result my rank jumped from AIR-330 to AIR-106. Some people saying GO is hard at users, but believe me, constructive arguements are allowed in GO, until unless you’re neither offending someone or nor disobeying the rules while asking your questions. I seen many people who need a solution for their questions instead of overcoming where they stucked, this is not the best way of learning. Some are posting images instead of typing questions, but duplicates can’t be easily found by images as the quetions – Please be type your questions. Aspirants need to understand the fact that, everyone starts from ZERO. You just need to show consistency in learning daily, certainly you will reach the destination after some time. You just try to complete the syllubus, revision, takes periodical tests and then GATE. I sugget aspirants to attempt GO Tests by mentors which are free, quality of these tests are high than paid tests which are avaiablle in market.
At the begining, I was tried to answer the questions which I know, even though good answer exist for those questions. Slowly I turned to answer those questions which don’t have good answers, after that answered which questions are worth to answer and now just commenting the approach to solve a question – How I evolved over the years in GO.
Now-a-days GO is a hobby for me, hope I will cotinue to contribute something to GO. I take this as an opporutinity to thank you @Arjun sir for guiding me, helping me whenever I need, @Bikram for tests, @Habib, @DD, @Sachin, @praggy for your beautiful answers, @Deepak, @soumya29, @minipanda, @srestha, @Ayush for healthy discussions.
