      ALWAYS REMEMBER 2 THINGS

      1. CONCEPT IS THE KEY , GATE QUESTIONS ARE NOT REPEATED BUT CONCEPT IS WITH UNFORESEEN PROBLEMS.

      2. END CHAPTER QUESTIONS ARE ONLY WAY TO CLEAR CONCEPTS AND PRACTICE.

      SOLVE GATE PAPERS FOR PRACTICE WHICH IS BETTER THAN QUESTIONS FOUND IN COACHING CENTER MATERIALS.

      In the final phase of your preps “try” to solve GATE papers.

      The answers for the GATE papers are not present anywhere but still you should attempt them anyway. This will give you confidence that you can actually solve GATE.
      You can read all the subjects given here you can skip one or two if
      you dont have much time But more important thing is to “MASTER”
      atleast 2 or 3 subjects. Also actively participate in discussions at
      GATE CS or GATE CS/IT 2009 and Algorithms and Datastructures community in orkut.com that helps alot in patching few loopholes in our concepts and enhancing your problem solving skills. Thats it guys,this much is I think enough to crack GATE. You can ofcourse Device your own methods and set of books.

      Just be confident you can do it!

      • COMPUTER NETWORKS
      I had read this subject only from forouzan and had read some chapters
      from Comer’s book. Attempt the exercises from forouzan they are
      important.
      • C programming
      You read this from “the C programming language” by kernighan and
      Ritchie that is more than enough plus spend some time in actually
      programming in C that is the best way you can learn C.
      • C++
      I dont know C++ much and I did not read anything for C++. Dont be
      spoiled, you can read C++ complete reference if you wish to.

      • Compiler Design
      Did not read this subject at all. “People” say Ullman’s book is
      excellent so you can read it from Ullman if you believe “People”.

      • OPERATING SYSTEMS
      Read this from following books:
      1>>Operating System Concepts By Galvin et al.
      2>>Stallings
      Attempt problems in Stallings they are very important especially
      problems on memory management and virtual memory. In Galvin the theory
      on memory management is excellent.
      • Digital Design
      Read “Digital Design” By morris mano

      • COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE
      Read this from following books
      1>>”Computer Architecture” By Morris mano

      2>>”Computer Organization” By Zacky,hamacher

      3>>”Computer Organization Hardware/Software Interface” By Hannessey
      and Patterson
      Read book 1 almost completely then read memory system from book 2 then
      you can read
      book 3, I had read only the performance measurement chapter from book
      3 as it is not given in any other book and also solve numericals from

      exercises they are very very important. I recommend you to read this
      subject after “Digital Design”.

      • THEORETICAL COMPUTER SCIENCE
      I initially tried to decipher Ullman’s book but I found the content
      too much for my brain to comprehend. So I switched to “Introduction to Computer Theory” By Daniel Cohen. The contents in this book are lucid.
      Also solving or atleast attempting the problems in the exercises is a
      must. But its really great if you could read Ullman.

      • DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
      I used Korth and Navathe for this. Initially I read korth because it
      is lucid and then only for normalization i read Navathe. The database
      design part in korth is difficult so read this part with utmost
      concentration and you may require several readings before you begin to understand things.

      • ALGORITHMS

      I recommend to you to read this subject along with Discrete maths or
      after you have completed discrete maths. I used only one book for this subject and found that to be more than enough for GATE.

      1>>”Introduction to Algorithms” By T.H.Cormen et al.
      This is “THE” book for Algorithms. The Book is simply brilliant, it
      makes you understand every details of Algorithms. So this book is a
      must read. Although I did not read the entire thing. Here is the list
      of chapters that I had read. If you are interested of course you can read the entire book.
      Chapter 1,2,3,4[excluding 4.4],6,7[excluding 7.3],8,10,11[excluding
      11.5],12[excluding 12.4],18,22,23,24[excluding 24.4 and 24.5] for
      NP-Completeness you can read 34 also.
      In addition to this book I strongly recommend you to see the video
      lectures from MIT. The lectures are given by Lieserson[who BTW is also
      one of the authors of CLRS] and Erik demaine. The lectures are
      absolutely brilliant. You may download them from ocw.mit.edu

      • DATASTRUCTURES

      I did not read this subject exclusively. I mostly participated in
      discussions in Algorithms and datastructures communities on orkut .
      That is i think more than enough.
