      Hi Swati,

      You can find many question papers with answer keys here: http://www.imsc.res.in/nbhm_model_questions

      You should practice these problems and see which areas you are weak in. We would recommend the following books, try to solve as many problems as you can from them:

      Topics in Algebra by I. N. Herstein
      Topology by J. Munkres
      Understanding Analysis by Abott
      Problem Book in Linear Algebra by P. R. Halmos
      Schaum series problem books in Linear Algebra and Complex Analysis
      Differential Equations with Historical Notes by Simmons
      Introductory Combinatorics by R. A. Brualdi
      Elementary Number Theory by D. M. Burton

      Please note that you need not read all these books from cover to cover, look at the questions of a few past years and then make an educated guess on the topics you need to cover. Aim for at least 30 out of 40 correct answers in the papers and then you will be called for an interview.

      Best of luck!! Share your experience with us after the exam and interview.
