You all must be worried about completing your syllabus before the GATE 2017 on time so that you can start revising and taking online test series for better hands-on practice but before you rush towards completing your syllabus as soon as possible have a look at our analysis that we did on last 5-6 year ECE GATE exam. Have a look at what we have found.

**GATE EC Engineering Exam Paper Analysis (2010-2015)**

From this analysis, you can now estimate that what is being more frequent in GATE for ECE exam. Also, this will help you to what you can avoid as well so that better time utilisation can be done. You can’t avoid subjects like General aptitude & Communication Theory but you can do or leave any other subject in which you think you are not that much handy according to your wish and capacity.

Now, the important topics which need to be focussed on in every key subject of ECE from GATE point of view are as follows:

**Signals and Systems**

- LTI Systems
- Fourier Representation of Signals
- Z-transform and Laplace Transform

**Networks**

- Network Solution and Methodology
- Transient and Steady State Analysis of RLC Circuit to DC input
- Laplace transforms, and Two-Port Networks

**Control Systems**

- Time Domain Analysis
- Root, State Variable Technique
- Frequency Response Analysis using Nyquist and Bode plots

**Digital Electronics**

- Logic Gates
- Boolean Algebra and K-Map
- Sequential Circuits and Counters, ADC and DACs.

**EDC**

- Semiconductor Theory
- PN Junction
- MOSFET and CMOS

**Analog Circuits**

- Diode Circuits
- Small Signal Analysis of BJT and FET
- Operational Amplifier and its Applications

**Electromagnetics**

- Electrostatics, EM waves
- Transmission Lines
- Waveguides and Antennas

**Communications**

- AM, FM Modulation and Demodulations
- Random Processes and Digital Communication

**Engineering Mathematics**

- Linear Algebra
- Calculus and Differential equations
- Probability and Statistics

By preparing in a well planned manner and solving the previous papers, the students can get good score in GATE exam.
