The book “GATE – Geology and Geophysics” is designed by us to provide a tonic for the preparation of GATE exam and that will surely help the GATE aspirants to face the exam with great confidence. We have made full efforts to consider all those points of Geology and Geophysics which we feel are important for the candidates appearing in the prestigious GATE exam.

GATE examination tests the in-depth knowledge of the students and demands comprehensive understanding of the various concepts.

The first section contains a brief theory of all the topics in Geology included in the GATE syllabus. The second section deals with a concise theory of Geophysics and spans almost all the topics marked in GATE syllabus. The theory in each of these sections has been compiled taking help of the standard books in Geology and Geophysics. Care has also been taken to include all the important formulae and diagrams that are important from the competitive point of view. The third section contains last twenty years’ solved papers of GATE – Geology and Geophysics. Solved papers help to familiarize the aspirants with the current trends of questions asked in GATE- Geology and Geophysics paper.
