Books

Since the syllabus for CUSAT(Under-graduate engineering courses) is based on higher secondary, the books of higher secondary are enough to have a proper understanding of the concepts. NCERT books for classes 11th and 12th can be used for the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Apart from these books, you can consider the following books as reference books:

  1. Inorganic Chemistry written by O.P. Tandon.
  2. Organic Chemistry written by Arihant Publications.
  3. Understanding Physics written by D.C. Pandey

For other courses,

  1. Logical Reasoning- S.Aggarwal’s  book( A Modern Approach To Logical Reasoning)
  2. Current Affairs- Newspapers are the best source for current affairs. Students should update themselves regularly. You should make notes on the important topics. This will help you in making the preparation easier towards the end.

The candidates who are giving the test for getting admission into postgraduate courses, refer those books which you were using during your undergraduate programmes. This would help you in the better understanding of the concepts.

There might be some topics for which you may not have the required study material. You can online resources for such topics. In some educational sites, you can find a lot of videos which would help you in simplifying the difficult areas. It will also help you in grabbing the concepts in a better way.
