Reference books for GATE CS and IT Engineering. GATE that stands for Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering.It is an all India Examination that basically test the all aspects of understanding of various undergraduate subjects in Engineering and Technology and is one of the difficult test. It tests the engineering basics in a brilliant way and mastering a total course of engineering more than 30+ subjects , needs effort which gives it a level of toughness in itself and is jointly conducted by Indian Institute of Science and seven IIT’s on behalf of National Coordination Board-GATE , MHRD , Govt. of India ,  Department of Higher Education. By this time 81% of the total no.of candidates who appeared for GATE belongs to ECE , CS and IT ,  Mechanical and Electrical.

(Computer science and Information technology) which is considered to be the fast growing field that includes different disciplines which enables a person with skills which is given the highest importance in Industry.However ,  IT has allowed the world economy to be an inter dependent system and has created new and interesting jobs like Computer programming , Hardware and software developing , Web designing and system analyzing and it improves the organizational learning and helps to keep a pace with the rapid advance in technology.
