I take this opportunity to thank Venkanna sir for his guidance and help in achieving 318 Rank in CSE 2013. Venkanna sir’s Test Series has helped ma a lot for practicing mathematics in exam like conditions.

I strongly recommend mathematics as optional and venkanna Sir’s IMS Institute for Mathematics. Thank you! Click Here to View original Message

I am grateful to Venkanna Sir for his guidance and support that immensely contributed to my preparation. I relied almost entirely on IMS Class notes for mathematics for theory as well as practicing. The Test Series gave me an opportunity to test me strengths and find weak points and practice writing answers with due steps. Venkanna Sir has also always been readily available outside the classroom to clear doubts and guide me. Mathematics, in my experience can be a very good avenue of scoring high marks if one is comfortable with it. Moreover, performance will only increase with further inputs which makes it different from many other subjects. Click Here to View original Message

My acquaintance with IMS dates back to a couple of year ago when joined the institute for the test series. During the course of the tests, I came to know about my weak areas. On Sir’s advice, I carefully browsed through his notes which indeed proved beneficial. IMS is the institute to reform with if you opt for Mathematics as an optional. Work Hard and enjoy the process!
