    • ChetanaHegde says:

      Hi Karthik,
      Thanks for the appreciation :)
      I upload the notes of the subjects which I am handling (or handled earlier). Hence, I am sorry, I don’t have notes of other subjects for 4th Sem.
      All the best!!

    Please mam i want Advanced web programing notes

    • ChetanaHegde says:

      Dear Ajith, please read the comments above. I upload the notes for the subjects that I teach (or taught earlier). So, I am sorry. I don’t have Web notes.

  5. Ajay says:

    Thanks madam for uploading ADA note previously i took ur java 3rd sem notes it was nice actually i am from oxford college

  6. Rakesh g says:

    Hai madam,iam rakesh g MCA 4th sem rnsit
    Please upload the ppts that you uses while teaching .

    • ChetanaHegde says:

      Hi Rakesh,
      Most of my ppt have only algorithms and few theory portions.. but do not have derivation of time complexity and steps of problem solving.
      Hence, I have uploaded only the notes.. Can u please clarify why do u need it?

  7. chethan says:

    Hai mam ,your notes are very useful and thanks for uploading..I want to know whether the ADA syllabus is changed for MCA 4th sem (2013 scheme)??

    • ChetanaHegde says:

      Hi Chethan,
      Thanks for appreciation!! Pls let me know in which college u r studying. From 2010 scheme to 2013 scheme there is a lot of change in syllabus. Moreover, after sending final copy of the syllabus in 2013, VTU again modified it and sent in 2014.
      Changes are: Addition of Huffman coding in Greedy Technique and removal of knapsack in the same chapter. Also, addition of branch and bound, backtracking etc in the last unit.
      I have uploaded notes according to these changes. Hope I have answered your query.
      All the best.

  9. Suhas Bhandari says:

    Im Suhas from Bangalore Institution of technology studying in 4th sem Mca … Thank you for the notes :) :) :)

  10. Ajay says:

    mam in ADA how much theory part we have to concentrate for exam

    • ChetanaHegde says:

      Hi Ajay,
      Very hard to answer your question!! It depends.. I have seen two extreme types of ADA papers in past 12-15 years.
      To study this subject for exam purpose, I suggest two ways:
      1. If you are good at maths, you can do full syllabus easily.
      2. If you are not confident about your maths skills, then concentrate on chapters like Decrease and Conquer, Greedy Technique and Dynamic Programming. Because, in these chapters, there are no mathematical analysis of time complexity. Whereas, initial chapters till Divide and Conquer are full of math analysis.
      Altogether, 25% theory and 75% problems, I can say.
      All the best!!

  11. Dayanandsagar says:

    Mam your notes are very helpful for students. We are very thankful to u mam

      All the best!!

    • Sagar Arora says:

      Mam did Prepared any notes for data mining and ERP ,Please will u share with us.. Please can you suggest us how too prepare for ada exams in best way

  15. Parimala says:

    Mam have you published the books for MCA VTU on java and ADA as well… If yes, kindly send me the details

    • ChetanaHegde says:

      Hi Parimala,
      No, I have not written books on Java and ADA. I have written only C++ book. But, I have notes on Java and ADA which I have already uploaded in my website. You can download them.

    how to obtain the optimal and feasible solution of dijikstra’s problem

    • ChetanaHegde says:

      The one which I explained in my notes is optimal solution. Any other solution – that is, from a source node to any path to reach destination node – is a feasible solution. Normally, there will be multiple feasible solutions. That is, you can reach from source to destination in different ways. But, the shortest path will be optimal solution. Dijkstra’s algorithm is one way to find optimal solution for finding shortest path from one source to all other nodes in a graph (Single-source-shortest-path algorithm).
      Hope this explanation will help you.

    Hi mam can u upload, qstn bank of 13mca41

    Hi mam can u upload qstn bank of 13mca41

  28. Sagar Arora says:

    Mam Will you share the notes on data mining and ERP please.

    • ChetanaHegde says:

      Sorry, I don’t have.

      • Sagar Arora says:

        Mam your Ada notes are very useful .some 13mca question paper they have about parallel algorithm ..please can you share some online material or any study material for that topic

        • ChetanaHegde says:

          Hi Sagar, 13MCA scheme do not contain parallel algorithms. It was there in 2010 scheme. So, no need to worry.
          By the way, which college are you from?
          All the best!!

          • Sagar Arora says:

            I am from BMS college .But in some previous year question paper of 13mca scheme they asked about the parallel algorithm ..if they asked out of syllabus question in that case what should we do .

  29. Shruthi says:

    Can u send me the question papers of 2013 scheme f ada ?

  30. Shruthi says:

    Whic r other subjects do u take mam?
