Description

This book acts as a complete reference for aspirants of GATE (CE), covering fundamental aspects of theory before proceeding to relevant questions. The theoretical and numerical concepts in the book are meticulously designed to enhance knowledge and offer valuable insights into critical aspects of the topics. It covers all topics, including new topics introduced in GATE(CE) 2016 syllabus in sufficient depth. The coverage of topics is self-sufficient requiring little to no cross-referencing having sufficient number of questions for practice. Each chapter in the book is important to upgrade the level of preparation, and competency level can be checked through Practice Exercises section.
