Respected Sirs / Madams,

I am from New Delhi, India. I have completed my graduation in june this year. 
I had no direction as to what should I do in life. I first thought of doing MS from USA, but since I hadn't done any research work during college, doors of GRE also closed for me. 
I did not apply for GATE this year. I got an on campus placement at ARICENT, Gurgaon. However, I am still waiting for its joining date to come. Hopefully, I will start working at ARICENT by mid December. 
I have nearly a month's time free at home which I can put to good use.
 Although extremely late , I have made up my mind to give GATE and do M.Tech from IIT Delhi. So I'll be giving GATE in 2017 (Since I didn't apply for 2016) .
I can watch any number of videos and search the net for subjects. Studying through books myself seems tougher. I plan to study using NPTEL resources.
I found the following 2 courses not listed on the video links given by you. Could you tell me if these 2 courses cover all the theory required for GATE : 
Computer Architecture : http://nptel.ac.in/courses/106106134/
I plan to take up the above 2 courses and finish them up completely. Should I go ahead with them ? Will they cover all the theory topics ?
I don't plan to take up any coaching. Also, could you suggest where could I do practice questions from ?

" I first thought of doing MS from USA, but since I hadn't done any research work during college, doors of GRE also closed for me."

It is not compulsory. At least 10 of my classmates are doing/have done MS from US/Canada and none of them had any research work during B.Tech. 

For GATE- yes NPTEL lectures are enough- because questions are made by them :) . And see GATE CSE syllabus (it would be mostly same for 2017) and not just study everything. 

Links given in http://videos.gatecse.in are contributed by gatecse members and not all good links are there. But I hope no bad links are there. 

Practice questions- you can solve here. More than 2200 - would be about 2500 after this GATE previous year GATE questions are there. Then solve TIFR questions and then Textbook exercises. These are sufficient for even rank 1. If you need offline book check here http://book.gateoverflow.in - will be updated every few months.
