Electronics and communication books! Everything you need to know.
Engineering, a career in which puts you at the forefront of innovation, and being skilled in engineering could help you shape the technologies of tomorrow. That coupled with the fact that you can latch on to your favorite subset of engineering rather than trying to learn each and everything associated with it is an added advantage.
“As engineers, we were going to be in a position to change the world – not just study it.”
—Henry Petroski, American engineer and author specializing in failure analysis
With numerous engineering colleges in India offering courses in various engineering branches, the options available are plenty. Here today we have rounded up all the required reading resources if you are into electronics and communication engineering.
This is the field to choose if you are into bleeding-edge technological advancements and understanding electronic gadgets are your forte. From the iPhone to Teslas, electronics have continued to surprise us and improve our quality of living. This field could help you fix your household electronics to understand the complex workings of a full-fledged automated electric car and maybe even help improve it's working. The fun doesn't end there either, this field has endless possibilities and if you are already taken up Electronics and communication as your major then we have good news for you. We have gone through the hassle of finding out the best books according to the electronics and communication engineering syllabus and created a summarized article for you so you could save some time and use the resources to help the world with a new technological breakthrough.
Hey, are you yet to take up engineering and are casually surfing to learn more?
Why not get to know about JEE preparation NCERT books while you are here. Well, if you live in Mumbai, we have a comprehensive guide to buying the best second hand books in Mumbai CIty, including your entrance exam preparation books, click here to go check that out.
Also, we recommend that you refer Advanced Problems in Organic Chemistry for JEE by M S Chauhan, Problems in Inorganic Chemistry for JEE Main & Advanced by V. K. Jaiswal, Advanced Problems in Mathematics for JEE (Main & Advanced) by Vikas Gupta & Pankaj Joshi and Concepts of Physics by H C Verma (Part 1 & 2). Also, you can get great deals on all these books on UsedBooksFactory.
Before we get to the books, a piece of gentle and friendly advice we'd like to give is that you should start preparing early. Studying for the semester the night before the exam is cool but missing out on understanding and learning more about those topics you liked during the lectures is a serious mistake. Engineering is a beautiful field and as an engineer myself all that I would advise you is to follow those topics that you felt like you connected with, it will result in huge payoffs.
Books for First Year Syllabus
Also known as the getting used to year, you'll end up learning a lot in this year, not just about engineering but about the lifestyle associated with engineering. You'll develop your critical thinking skills during this year trying to figure out how many lectures you can still bunk whilst still maintaining your 75% attendance criteria. Along with that, you'll learn Physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering drawing, coding, electronics, and even environmental studies under certain curriculums! This is going to be a hectic year and you'll need all the help that you can get to ace through the semesters. The attitude you develop towards the semesters this year determines your performance in the rest of the semesters. So, don't miss out, these are the books you can refer to to get the most out of your first year of engineering.
Introduction to Electrical Science written by Adrian Waygood, Dynamics by Russell Hibbeler, Mechanics of Solids by Egor Popov, Introduction to Algorithms by Thomas Cormen. Applied Mathematics By G V Kumbhojkar will be your go-to for sem 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 and that's a book to be cherished. (Heads up, Applied Mathematics 2 and 3, also known as M2 and M3 are the most dreaded subjects among students and are responsible for countless KTs and gloomy nights.)
Books for Second Year Syllabus
Now that you have settled in and can calculate your bunks left even at 3 A.M after binging on coffee and writing numerous pages of assignments, you have got the gist of engineering. Now your core focus should be on gathering as much knowledge about the field you are interested in.
Electrical and electronic engineering materials by SK Bhattacharya, Circuit Theory and Transmission Lines by Ravish R Singh, Digital Electronics by Prof. R.P. Jain, Microprocessors and Interfacing by Douglas V Hall. Also don't forget the holy grail 'Applied Mathematics By G V Kumbhojkar' to get through applied mathematics 3 and 4.
Books for Third Year Syllabus
By now attendance isn't a headache, because you have discovered the age-old ritual of 'Proxy'. Not just that you have also turned into a human GPS and know about all the good eat-outs within a 5 Km radius of your college.
So, to help your breeze through the fourth and fifth semester, these are the books you need to refer to: Random Signal Analysis by Schaum Series, RF Modeling and Antennas by John Wiley, Microcontrollers and applications by Prof.Bharat Acharya. Integrated Circuits by Prof.Roy Chaudhary and Ramakant Gaikwad. You will have to work on mini-projects for a couple of subjects, there's a separate section about those at the end of this article.
Books for Final Year Syllabus
By now you have gone from a timid teen with an awkward sense of fashion to a full-grown responsible adult. And might already have placement offers from great companies, well, congratulations! Also, if you are still in your third or second year and want to start preparing for your placement tests early on, we have a list of recommended books below.
Meanwhile, the best books for final year students are: Mobile Communication by Prof.Theodore Rappaport, Microwave and Radar engineering by TataMcgraw Hill, Electronic product design by.V.S.Bagad, Optical Communication and Networks by McGraw Hill Publications and Image and Video Processing by Pearson Education.
That's enough to get you through but, we got some bonus content for you!
Mini-projects could help strengthen the weak links you developed during the morning lectures you were half asleep in. Check out Electronics Projects for Dummies Book by Earl Boysen and Nancy Stevenson and Complete Electronics Self-Teaching Guide with Projects by Earl Boysen and Harry Kybett.
This would be a fun couple of weeks. The better you prepare the better your chances would be to get into that dream company of yours. So, these are the top picks that could help you achieve your dreams: How to prepare for Quantitative Aptitude by Arun Sharma, Cracking the Coding Interview by CareerCup, Quantitative Aptitude for Competitive Examinations by R.S.Aggarwal, A Modern Approach to Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning by R.S. Aggarwal and Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis.
Again, starting early would give you enough time to prepare and make sure you have a fighting chance.
