    Excellent book for Gate ece

    Covers a lot of topics, focussed mainly on basics, previous years question topic wise which makes you understand current topic more, practice question are good but less in quantity, i personally feel its better than GK and Arihant guide books. Imp formulas to remember after each topic covered. One should start with this book and then go for Arihant and RK kanodia to solve problems
