Here is the list of best book for Electronics & Communication stream.

Most preferred book list for GATE ECE

Book NameAuthor NameDetailsLink to Buy
Integrated ElectronicsMILMAN-HALKIASIt is the best book for Basic electronics study and also referred in most of the top engineering colleges. This book also covers the most of the topics of analog circuits. The language of the book is easy to comprehend. Some of your friends may suggest you Sedra & Smith, but I don't recommend it to you as it has very vast syllabus & harsh language which you can't understand in a single reading.
Microprocessor Architecture, Programming and Applications with the 8085Ramesh GaonkarIt is a great book by Ramesh Gaonkar. I never heard the name of other author books for Microprocessor subject. Every topic explained in it with examples & codes. This topic takes more time to study as compared to others, but once you make a command on it, you are going to get the full mark on this.
Communication SystemsSimon HaykinCommunication System book by Simon Haykin is equally admirable like other listed here. You don't need to put on more time & efforts on this subject. This topic is among the quick study subjects in which you can score more with less practice.
Network AnalysisValkenburgThe language of the book may be hard to understand, but the exercise given at the end of every chapter contains various types of questions. If you can make command on the numerical presented there, you going to get the high score in Network Theory.
Control systemsControl Systems EngineeringThe control system is a little bit tricky subject unlike other. Here your math concepts of Complex Numbers may work more. If you like the mathematics, you will love this topic. It's among one of the scorings topics for GATE ECE exam. The book contains many questions & examples in each chapter which will be helpful to crack the GATE 2017.
Digital Logic and Computer DesignM. Morris ManoDigital circuit is one of the easiest subjects in GATE ECE which you can study in very less time. This volume explains the each & everything with diagram and examples.
Signals and SystemsOppenheim/Willsky/HamidIf you like the Network Theory&Control System, then there is no reason to, unlike the Signals & System. Mostly. The whole topic contains numerical type to discrete-time Fourier transform (DTFT), DFT, FFT, Z-transform, interpolation of discrete-time signals; LTI systems, etc.
Higher Engineering MathematicsB.S.GrewalHigher Engineering Mathematics by BS Grewal covers all the syllabus mentioned in Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering. It has lots of example & unsolved questions which will be very helpful for preparations.
Op-Amps and Linear Integrated CircuitsGayakwadOperational Amplifier is an easy and scoring topic. If you check the previous year question paper, then you can quickly find that mostly Op-Amp circuit related numerical problems in the exam. The Op-Amps and Linear Integrated Circuit by Gayakwad is the excellent reference book for the study.
Gate Guide Electronics & Communication Engg. 2017By G. K. PublicationsEvery GATE aspirants must have the one practice book for the whole syllabus. G. K. Publication is the oldest & best in this regard. You must not use this to study theory. It is only to practice more & more question for better understanding of the topics. You can also refer the Arihant publications book for same purpose.
Electronics & Communication Engineering 2017 (Solved Papers 2000-2016)By G. K. PublicationsPrevious year question papers practice is equally important for better preparations. It will give you the idea about the difficulty level and the pattern of the test. You can also practice these test & check your position.

The book list mentioned above are from the best authors in their field & sufficient for final test preparations. You should not search for the single guide to study the whole syllabus. Better to stick with the logic one book for one subject.
