Books that Every GATE CSE Aspirant Must have :
  • 1.One GATE Previous Year Solved Paper Book.
  • 2.One GATE Practice Book.
  • 3.One Reasoning and Aptitude Book Specially for GATE.
  • 4.One General English Book.
  • 5.One Engineering Math Book of MADE EASY(specially design for gate).
  • 6.One Hand Book(or you can make your own short notes).
My personal suggestion is :
  • 1.If you have sufficient time (means you are in college 3th or 4th semester) then go for standard books.
  • 2.And If you don’t have enough time stick to class notes of any coaching material and focus on Previous year question papers and solve as much as you can questions from test series.
