We study the asymptotic growth of Betti numbers in tower of finite covers and provide simple proofs of approximation results, which were previously obtained by Calegari and Emerton, in the generality of arbitrary $p$-adic analytic towers of covers. Further, we also obtain partial results about arbitrary pro-$p$ towers.
