This interactive assessment eBook is a direct response to the country’s first online examination at the university level. Over 25,000 students from more than 100 engineering colleges will appear for this exam, and the Attano-Nirali MCQ eBook will give them that distinctive edge through practice on computers and tablets, over the traditional pen-paper method of preparation.

The Attano platform allows students the opportunity to download assessments on an Android tablet or Windows PC, and can even be used offline. Another plus is the immediate viewing of worked solutions, which can be used for revision anytime & anywhere.
