Suggestion for Self Study:
If you are not taking coaching classes for your gate exams, you need to do self study. Internet is one of the best source of learning you can watch lecture notes videos on Youtube and other engineering websites. I recommend you watch NPTEL Lectures. Very few students have the patience of watching these lectures. I will list the lectures which you can follow for each subject. You can visit http://www.gatemitra.com/nptel-lectures-for-gate.html
You can download all video related to your subject and courses. Lets see it an example of lecture by Prof. S Srinivasan, faculty(retd.) at IIT Madras on Digital Circuits and Systems.
