In my previous post, I've given a comprehensive list of topics/syllabus for NID-DAT according to the sample test paper as available in NID official web page. While the list is yet to be added with some more topics, I've tried to gather some relevant resources; most of them are PDF's that are free to download, gathered from internet, after deliberate searching. Hope you will find that useful.
Last year, I've shared NID-DAT Resources in this post according to then syllabus. They have covered syllabus under three sections, which I tried to cover in that post accordingly. But, going through the sample paper, I sensed that more topics need to be covered, because of which I was made to make a new post. For now, I will update whatever I've found till date so that you can start working on that. Meanwhile, I will try to gather more leftover topics and share them. So, I will keep updating this page till the next month, and you don't have to worry whether you have missed the updates or not because I will inform/update in Stuff You Look as well as my Facebook page whenever there's an update in this page. Hope this would help you.
Also, in the previous resource page, you can skip general, mechanical and verbal reasoning questions (in section A3) for now, and go through rest GA topics especially in A1 and A3, as I feel that these topics could be safely neglected.
