gate 2010

I am final year student of B Tech (chemical).I am preparing for gate 2010.
but I am confused that from where i should start for preparation.again I have one question regarding the maths that which text book should i prefer which will contain objectives and solutions for maths.I have read the IIT, NIT ranking which was given by amar sexena .I want to know that is it true that all the NITS admission will be on the behalf of GATE score or each have its own entrance test.
