Kanupriya Gupta 26th Jan, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

Candidates are now looking for the best preparation methods for the GATE exam. One of the best ways to boost preparation for any entrance test is to scan and research the best available books which can cater to your needs correctly. Here are some of the important aspects of choosing a book for your GATE exam.

First of all, it should be easy for candidates to read and understand the books. If the concepts and chapters are explained in a simplified way, the candidates will be able to understand without much use of the technical terms. This will allow candidates to have a deeper understanding of the issues.

Since the GATE 2020 summary consists of many complex pages, the books should try to keep the interpretation clear and descriptive. The books should have accurate information on the chapters and topics discussed in the GATE syllabus.

Candidates should not use any books with misleading information. Applicants are more likely to retain what they have learned if there are diagrams in help topics and chapters in the textbooks. The best books to use during training are those with a simple language.

Let's see the best books for GATE:

  • Architecture- Hamacher
  • Algorithm- Cormen
  • Operating System- Galvin
  • TOC- Theory of Computation- Ullman
  • Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications by Kenneth Rosen
  • Higher Engineering mathematics by B.S. Grewal
  • Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Erwin Kreyszig
  • The C Programming language by Dennis Richie
  • Classic Data Structures by Debasis Samanta
  • Computer Architecture – A Quantitative Approach by Hennessy and Patterson
  • Computer Organization and Embedded systems by Carl Hamacher
  • An Introduction to Formal Languages and Automata by Peter Linz
  • NPTEL lectures by Kamala Krithivasan
  • Compilers: Principles, Techniques and Tools by Aho & Ullman
  • Compiler Design in C by Allen I Holub
  • Introduction to Algorithms by Cormen
  • Data Structures & Algorithms by R.S. Salaria
  • Digital Design by Morris Mano
  • Digital Electronics by S. Salivahanan & S. Arivazhagan
  • Operating System Concepts by Galvin
  • Modern Operating System by Andrew Tanenbaum
  • Operating Systems by Stallings

For more information:

After this you need to follow certain important study tips to crack the exam, which are as follows:

How many marks have to be score in the GATE 2020 exam to get NIT Surat???? in electronics and communication.

Akram Khan 26th Jan, 2020


Nit surat also take admission to engineering postgraduate programs through gate.

It is difficult to predict the exact score of GATE 2020 for admission to  electronics and communication.

However if we look at previous years cutoff of nit surat for communication system the closing was 526 in 2018 and 566 in 2017 for open category.

You can check the previous years  cutoff score

So with previous years cutoff trends you can expect a score around 500 in 2020 as safe score to secure a seat in electronics and communication for a general category candidate.


i got 40 marks in GATE 2019 .can i get any Nits

Raj Aryan Sharma 26th Jan, 2020

Hi Rahul.

Sorry, but unfortunately 40 marks in GATE are not enough to get into top NITs, if you are of General or OBC category. But, you have chances of getting into lower to middle tier NITs. Now it also depends on the branch you gave GATE in. The cutoff differs for different branches.
