I wrote this post quite a long time back but could not finalize it till today, as I caught cold and feel sleepy most of the time. Compiling the results of the survey has become a difficult task for me, because of lack knowledge about the books and authors. In this post I just posted the information shared by many visitors here. I specially thankful to Prasanth PP, Sandeep Negi, Maulik Shah, Siva Satyendra Sahoo, Sourabh Sahu, Abhishek Gaur, Abhishek Anand, Ravikant Sonkar for their huge contribution for making this post possible.

I am also thankful to Gopika P, Akil Raza, Avishek Sinha Roy and Paras for their contribution for additional marital for GATE preparation. We whole Inspire n Ignite community is thankful these people for their help contribution.

I think for gate only some basic are required so if a student is doing regular study in his B.Tech he needs only a brush up… so any key notes n sum objective papers like or GK publication… or the study material of coaching centers like IES Made Easy are quiet sufficient and beneficial too.
