Can anyone suggest me some good material for preparing English for GATE? There are few questions, these days based on paragraphs and English Vocabulary.

I know Barrons is for GRE but I am not sure if it can be used for GATE.

please help me.

P.S: I am a mechanical student.
@Ankita Katdare • 06 Jul, 2011 You may use a book called 'Word Power Made Easy' to increase your vocabulary overall.
Vocabulary lists such as the one is barron's are available everywhere across the net. [even on CE]

Does GATE have questions related to Reading Comprehension (RC)? If yes, there are lot of books by Kaplan and Princeton about it.
A rich vocabulary helps in solving the RC questions quickly. It does not need separate practice as such.
@cooltwins • 06 Jul, 2011 i recommend "Word Power Made Easy" too... it is an awesome tool to improve your vocabulary... do give it a try...
@ISHAN TOPRE • 06 Jul, 2011 The course of English for GATE is not very big as such, it is definitely very less than GRE. However those marks are easy and I want to encash on them unlike University.

yes, GATE does have RC. However they are typically small paragraphs, however if we read them then the option for them look similar. I only want some practice material for it. Thanks for your help.
