GATE Bits 2…

Since I have been asked many times about the resources – online or offline that I used during my preparation, I thought of summing all this in one post.
Books:
Refer this: http:// http://gatecse.in/wiki/Best_books_for_CSE
For those wondering about buying the books, please stop. You can easily download the E-books with simple google search.
I didn’t read all the books mentioned in the link neither did I cover every topic from the ones I read.
What I used :
DBMS: Navathe
OS: Galvin
Discrete mathematics (Propositional logic): Kenneth Rosen
Computer networks: Forouzan
Digital Electronics: Morris Mano
Data Structures: Seymour Lipschutz
C Programming: Dennis Ritchie
You should also solve the back exercises of the books, the solutions of which can be found at Newgradience.com ( See the previous blog for details on newgradience )
Video Lectures
Refer this: http:// http://gatecse.in/wiki/Best_video_lectures_for_CSE
I didn’t have much time to see these lectures but these are awesome sources esp. if you are majorly preparing from home. I only saw TOC lectures by Shai Simonson and they were wonderful.
Notes :
I’m providing the links for the notes I referred during my preparation. These are supposed to be Ace and Made easy hand made notes. But, I did find some faults while studying. So, don’t follow them blindly.
Personally, I found ACE notes more useful especially the mathematics part. There are good questions in probability and calculus pdfs. I referred to TOC, CN, Compiler design, bits of OS, Digital Electronics, bits of DS and algos from the ACE CS notes.
Here are the links :
ACE CS subjects
ACE mathematics
Made easy
From the last one, I referred bits of calculus and TOC.
And, most importantly, use Gate overflow for referring the solutions of previous years.
Hope this helps !
Good luck everyone ! 🙂
