Best Reference Books for GATE Civil Engineering

I am going to divide it into two parts

  1. Study Materials from Coaching Institute
  2. Reference Books by Renowned Authors

1. Study Materials from Coaching Institute

This is the most important part of my book recommendation. I will recommend you to take a postal study course from any coaching institute.

I highly recommend IES Master’s Postal Study Course, as their study materials are the best in the market.

The theories and concepts are very concise and elaborative as well and the questions that they provide in the study materials are up to the mark for GATE preparation.

You need to go to their website, enrol yourself on the postal study course.

You will get the books delivered to your place and from that books, you will prepare for GATE preparation.

You are free to choose any one of the coaching institutes, whichever you feel is the best in the market. But having coaching postal material is a must to prepare for GATE.

These study materials from coaching institutes have been really handy for preparation in a short period of time and you will get to know about the syllabus of GATE as well, as they are designed in such a manner.

So my first recommendation must-have books are the study material of any coaching institute.

2. Reference Books by Renowned Authors

These are the books written by a renowned author. These books are for gaining in depth knowledge of any topic.

You will encounter vast theories to read about any topic, so it will not be possible to go through the whole book during preparation. As we don’t have that much time to go through the whole book.

It is always recommended to go through the coaching notes or study materials provided by any coaching institute and if you find any difficulty in any topic then you should choose among one of the books and go through that topic only.
