CEED Resources



In this page, links were given that will help you find some useful resources and books. These resources will probably help you with your CEED exam preparation; for entrance to Masters in Design (M.Des) in India. Remember CEED Part A is similar to UCEED exam and in fact difficulty level of UCEED is much higher than CEED exam. So, I have also included questions, practice mock tests as well as materials from UCEED page for your study. Hope you find them useful.

  2. Hi
    firstly, I want to thank you for all the resources. I found the perspective drawing book especially helpful.
    Secondly, can you please direct me to a book, which will help learn drawing people and animals, right from the beginning? I am not good at drawing, and a step by step instruction guide would be very much helpful.
    Also, is there a good ebook, to learn shading from? The book you have suggested in the Resource section does have some good tips but as a beginner, it is a little difficult for me to comprehend all of it right away. So if you can suggest something for beginners (hopefully, if it builds up like it does in that perspective drawing ebook), it would be great!!
    Thanks a ton for taking the effort to put all this up...it's a great one-stop shop for my prep!

  6. Hi Bhanu
    I hv seen previous year papaer of ceed in which question of product design , visual communication and UID were asked in optionally. So do i need to prepare for three of them or if im good in any one stream so i should improve it only .

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To be on safer side, better to prepare for not less than two design streams and like I told in my videos, PD questions are appearing almost every year, but still it's good to learn other design streams, remember design preparative questions appear even in Part - A section. So, I suppose you cannot neglect completely any of the streams especially - Animation, VC, and problem identification type of design questions. Go for two or more design streams instead of sticking to one particular stream - that's it :)

  7. hello i jus gave my 12th hsc from mumbai and iit bombay has introduced uceed adesigning course well i have no real idea about this i read some things mostly it is based on drawing or so well please guide me through

    1. Well, since UCEED is new of its kind and since we don't have any previous papers (so as to analyse the pattern), I cannot give an exact pattern or study process like I gave for M.Des CEED right now. Anyway based on the exam timings (6hrs - 3hr for Part A and 3hr for Part - B, both being of MCQ type) I could say that you need not have to worry about drawing/sketching for now. Although the course demands your sketching and design skills (that you can develop coz this is the right time to do so) but coming to the exam point of view, for now, you need to focus on design and mathematical aptitude with little or more concern towards social initiatives. Better if you go through the following :

      1. Sketching/drawing terms and terminology
      2. Definition and role of diff. design streams
      3. Logo's; visual and illusive picture demonstration
      4. Ability to analyze a given picture and come up with problems or identify creative
      hidden concepts
      5. Mathematical aptitude and Logical reasoning
      6. geometrical picture Reasoning
      7. Pattern identification of geometric 2D images
      8. Puzzles with pictures, numbers and shapes etc

      These are some quick topics that you can concentrate for now. If time permits, I would also try to give a detailed description or so called proceedure to deal with uCEED along with the resources like I did for CEED.

      Hope this helps and I would recommend you to explore the Part A resources and as well as the topics in this page for your initial knowledge, that should give you some idea. And yes please check yourself whether you are really interested in design career and have minimum design passion/skills !

    1. Thank you very much for sharing info with everyone.
      I already came across that site many times. Great stuff for design students, but I doubt the stuff is too design specific in the sense it's very good to learn about different design streams, but might be little helpful from exam point of view. May be it could be of much help after ceed i.e start of portfolio process.

  14. My daughter is giving UCEED 2017. She is in 11th std. How to start with your blog for preparing the entrance exam. If you could post some schedule for the new beginners, it will be of great help. (If we start with first link it is leading to numerous links, we don't know what is enough). So please provide with a guide time table for 2017 aspirants.

    1. Probably she should go through this link for better understanding of the process,
      How to start and what to practice for UCEED

      UCEED and CEED covers numerous topics and so obviously it is required to include these many link. Expecting a single guide book some set of topic is useless for this kind of exam. Anyway, after 2016 UCEED and NID exams gets over, I will consider making a timetable with proper topics to be covered.

    2. Dear Bhanu Chander, What you are doing is great great great work. Plz carry on. I am getting what ever topic I am having in mind for my daughter who is preparing for UCEED 2017. You are posting it or already posted. Thank you very much. Please update with timetable it will be highly helpful. Once again my blessings for this noble work.

    3. Thank you sir,
      Yes sir, I tried to cover all the resources that I can gather for the exam and I will be improvising this blog according to the syllabi changes or pattern of every year.

      Regarding timetable, I thought it's not that practical to give a common time schedule especially when time for preparation is more than 1 month. The reason is: every individual have their own daily commitments and each prefer different times for different choices, like some prefer to start GA at the very beginning while some don't, some are students whhile some are at home. That's why I thought common time table might not suit to everyone's choice/taste. Anyway, since you want it badly, let me see if I can give some schedule to your daughter, again please note that without knowledge of some basic facts like what is she doing (like studying regularly or weekly). Any exams etc I cannot give proper approach, if you can please drop the details and the time that she can spare in a week or so. I will try to figure out some schedule soon. Please drop the details to my/SYL FB messages or mail me.

    4. Thanks for your immediate reply Mr. Bhanu Chander. I fully agree with you. I will be sending the details of her plan to utilise the time for board and uceed exams, through your SYL/FB inbox. Please inform me how she has to plan her study schedule. Once again I appreciate your commitment and dedication inspite of your regular studies. God bless you.

    1. This is purely problem solving skill mixed with your creative thinking. Let me write the three challenges for the first question itself, that should be a hint to you. Try if u can figure out solution for the challenges that I'm writing
      1. Water in the glass should not fall down as it hops
      2. Finding the water source is itself a challenge
      2. Prevent any human/animal etc from drinking the half water
