GATE Preparation

GATE Study Material

As I mentioned earlier, conducted two surveys during April 2010 to July 2010 regarding GATE recommended GATE coaching centers and study material. In GATE study material survey almost 600 students participated. In this post I will try to give pointers to the GATE study materials related to different subjects.

Compilation of the survey results took so much time, whereas reader were asking for more and more details about GATE study books and other related information. Please visit how to start preparing for GATE to get an idea how to use Book for GATE preparation and how question papers and question banks will help.

The survey focused on Books based on GATE syllabus that helped many students to crack GATE or at least was helpful to understand the basic concepts. Along with books I also recommend you to refer to question banks and other GATE specific study material, Brilliant Tutorial, GATE forum or some books that give all in one preparation material. Do not forget to visit GATE Video lectures for a great learning experience from IITs and other universities in the world.

Brilliant tutorial materials – Awesome notes to be referred during last few weeks before exam. ( I started just a month ago and could achieve a fairly good percentile of 99.72 ). Adarsh J

For some subjects there are multiple books, don’t get confused which one to start. The best book to start with is the book you read before during academic year. It will save your time to learn the concepts as you are already know and if you have any doubts you can refer to the other books. Best thing is to have an own book and other book either can be borrowed from library or from other friend.

I will try to compile one subject study material everyday and I hope to finish few subjects during this week.

GATE Study Material for CSE
GATE Study Material for ECE
GATE Study Material for Electrical Engineering
GATE Study Material for Mechanical
GATE Study Material for Civil
GATE Study Material for Biotechnology

The survey is conducted as an effort to make a complete guide for GATE preparation. These are results of contribution of many students, let’s remain thankful to them and try helping other students and juniors as much as possible. There no better help than sharing good and correct information regarding higher education.

I will also try to cover complete M.Tech admission in 2011 as I did it with help of many students in 2010. Please do subscribe by email for update in email. You can also be a fan on face to get updates in facebook feeds. Also don’t feel hesitant to drop a comment if you have suggestion, question or information to share.

    Dear Sir,
    I am trying for the gate from last 2 years, I attempted GATE-2011 and got qualified with Average ranking and score as i am unable to apply for the IIT’s and NIT’s.
    After that, went for job and doing now too. As my GATE score will be expired this year.
    Now i want to pursue for M.Tech in IIT’s or NIT’s only, so can you guide how can go with the Study. As previously i went through the coaching, but it helped to clear the gate exam only, But i want to reach some what higher, some what greater the position what i am now. Now i am working as Software Developer, have good impression in the company as one of the good developer. But still i am not satisfied with the day to day work what i am doing. I want to do more worthy work, than now.
    As i tried to study during the daily, but i got so much work in office as i am getting tired up, so i unable to study more.
    So as per my condition what you want me to suggest…?
    As my brother and family members are supporting for my higher study as they asking me to drop the job and go for the full time preparation, but i am getting fear as in previous attempt i failed to grab the college what i require.
    So can you give me some guidance for my present condition.
