    I have recently bought two books GATE GUIDE Signals and Systems and GATE CLOUD Signals & Systems by NODIA Publications. The book is surely a bliss for us, student, who are targetting gate and preparing throgh self study. It is very conceptual and that's what is required to crack gate.

    I dont know whether the books is avaialble for other ECE subjects or not ? If someone have some information then please share.
