There are just a few logic gates that you must know on your finger tips to combine it with one another and form other varieties of gates. Once you are strong in logic gates, truth table too would feel easy. Apply the same for other diagrams and learn with interest.

Mark Answers According To Marks

Even though the entire syllabus has to be covered for being able to answer any question, you might have to work on the presentation of the answers to score well. Divide the text into short answers and long answers and remember to mention the important points in both of them. Work on writing crisp answers and elaborate descriptions according to the marks.
