About The Book

The book on "ComET" - Commerce Eligibility Test is prepared based on the syllabus for JRF / NET / SET. University Grants Commission (UGC) conducts an examination on all-India basis for awarding either Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) or for qualifying in National Eligibility Test (NET). States in India also conduct State Eligibility Test (SET) on similar grounds of NET. Therefore, there is a need for a book for preparing for the above examinations.

The book contains sufficiently a large number of Objective Type Questions for each topic of the syllabus prescribed, as the competitive exam would consist of only objective questions. The Objective Type Questions include Multiple Choice Questions; Match the Following; and Assertion and Reasons. At the end of each Unit, Key for the Questions in the Unit is provided.

A sample of earlier UGC Exam Papers along with the kety is also appended.

We are confident that the book would be of a great help to the candidates preparing for the JRF / NET / SET and the reader would also be able to have a comprehensive knowledge of the subject.
