NET is one of the most difficult examinations, more so because the syllabus is very vast and only a few lucky ones can cross the threshold, especially in English. This is borne out by the small number of students who have been able to clear the test over the years.
The present book is written keeping in mind the new pattern which is effective from June 212 examination according to which Paper II and III have objective-type questions. Special attention has been paid to 'Literary Theory and Criticism', which has been dealt with quite extensively. One of the unique features of the book is that explanatory notes have been given wherever required and some information is sought to be given through 'boxes'. Besides this, the book has objective-type questions on all the units of Paper III. The book will prove useful for those preparing for UGC NET, JRF, SLET and other competitive examinations in the subject of English.
