It is really annoying that the iits have decided to increase the gate application fee for males. If they had to provide concession for females they should have provided their own fund AND NOT TAXING MALES.Is this the gender balance they are boasting off????

it is clearly visible that a slight increment in the fees by 200/- is intentionally to fund for females. that is males are required to fund the females so that they can write exam!!!! I thought INDIA was democratic; when did it SOCIALIZED ???

u have not mentioned ur branch.
anyway if u r in ec branch then without wasting time in standard course books u should go for practicing problems.
you can opt the subjectwise books written by R K Kanodia that specially designed for gate exam. i have read "gate guide signal and system". It is best book for preparing GATE in a short time. i think there are some new subject titles also in the market. go 4 it n best of luck...
n sorry i have not the idea of other branches.
