Which Are The Best Books To Prepare For GATE Architecture (AR) Examination?

A lot of students ask us which are the right books to prepare for GATE Architecture (AR) exam. Here is what we suggest.

 

Books available off the shelf in book shops:

You will find many a books or (guides) in bookshops by various authors / publications. These books claim that they are complete preparation guide to GATE Architecture (AR) with past exam papers. Normally, these books are around a 1000 pages. In our opinion, these books are NOT comprehensive for GATE Architecture (AR) and can be used merely as reference guides. GATE Architecture (AR) is not an exam whose theory and practice questions can be crunched in a single book.

Engineering College Books:

These are the best books to study and learn the subject. Make sure that the author is the best in the field. While these books are excellent in explaining theory and also provide sufficient practice questions, these are not written for GATE Architecture (AR). So you may not know what to focus on and also may end up spending much more time then what is required to prepare a subject.

Course Material for GATE Architecture (AR):

Career Avenues GATE Architecture (AR) faculty has very carefully selected and summarized all concepts that are required in GATE Architecture (AR) exam. Our study material covers all concepts and practice questions. All concepts tested in last 10 years of GATE Architecture (AR) have been well illustrated. So instead of reading an excellent engineering college book (which may be over 1000 pages for each subject), it is better to read focused GATE Architecture (AR) material with practice questions. For more information on our Course Material, please refer to the courses for your branch of Engineering under the head GATE Architecture (AR) Preparation.

Anyway, here are some of the books you can refer to, for additional reading material.
