    Thanks friend
    ·
  • Thanks a lot mate.
    ·
  • Paper was relatively straightforward and doable!!
    ·
  • @coolhand I'm thinking of opting economics as optional .. I have interest in it

    How much time it takes to complete syllabus ?
    And any good coaching available ?
    ·
  • No coaching required brother just self study will make it wonder.. hardly will take 3 months to complete the syllabus
    ·
  • Subject is good for those who have a background in it.. Ideally 4-5 months.. Issues with Eco - no good coaching , test series and peer group.@ABdeVilliers
    ·
  • Nope .. no background in it @coolhand

    @Desert_bird so just follow the 3 stage strategy by gaurav agrawal sir .. ?

  • Hey.....what does nash equilibrium question require....cournot or chamberlin?
    ·
  • Cournot is always in Nash eqbm and even Bertrand is. You could use any model. Chamberlin requires collusion so as far as I know it shouldn't be that.
    ·
  • 20 marks gone.... :s

    I just googled ...it showed any non co-operative equilibrium is nash equilibrium...since chamberlin is also non co op ....it can be considered one....and and it just recognises interdependence ....no collusion like you said....

  • @ABdeVilliers I had taken econ without back ground...
    could not cover properly in 3 - 4 months.
    Paper 2 is doable, there will be problem in paper 1
    m thinking of dumping eco. as peer group is imp. in my opinion and it sucks for econ.
    gaurav aggarwal inspired me alot, but he was a prodigy... take at ur own risk..if u do take econ. , prepare previous year questions thoroughly.

    gaurav agarwal is no prodigy....he is as normal as us. :smile: . believe me if you give three dedicated months to economics optional ...you can DO wonders in CSE with this subject. I am no iitian like gaurav agarwal but i could attempt all 500 marks ....and according to me i did fairly well.

  • Any non-cooperative equilibrium is Nash equilibrium- when each party is doing the best it can, given what its competitor is doing. Gave prisoner dilemma example.
    ·
  • in my opinion, gaurav aggarwal was a prodigy, he cracked iit at age 16 that too when iit enterance were crazy difficult..but difference of opinion h.
    3 months is not suufficient for new comers in my opinion.
    ·
  • I answered paper 2 with a complete layman approach....will that help....this is my first attempt ..that is why a bit worried about everything. :)
