I hope you all are preparing for GATE & IES in full throttle. Just few days ago, i bought a handbook on electrical engineering by arihant publishers. Being honest, just in first sight, i was in love with this amazing book. The beauty & elegance of the book compelled me to write a review about it. Just to make it interesting in my own way, i am writing it as an imaginary dialogue.
You: Ok Mr… Which book is this?
Me: Arihant’s Handbook Series – Electrical Engineering. (Links at the end of article)
You: Sagar,your camera sucks! Anyways, i thought that you were done with GATE & IES, so why did you brought that book?
Me: Actually, i love new books. I love to see what they have to offer me new. Apart from this, i have electrical as my optional in cse.
You: Ok smarty! But why are you advertising? Are some kind of agent or something?
Me: No. When i found the book & read it, i felt like spreading the word. I sincerely believe that it will help you a lot in your preparation. The book is so amazing that i felt that if i don’t spread the word, i will be like a child of class 5 who avoids sharing his secrets of high marks 😉 I brought this book, I liked it, I felt ecstatic. i felt like telling this to others. Rest is your choice. End of story.
You: Alright! What are the pros & cons of the book?
Me: Pros: Awesome print quality
Concepts along with formulae
Very little errors
Cons: A little costly, but it pays well.
You: But if i am correct you already had a handbook. Isn’t it?
Me: Yes, while i was preparing for GATE, i had brought another one. That time, this book wasn’t published. Now i feel that that book was a junk. That was non-uniform in coverage & content too was not very good. This ones heavily pays off the cost. The contents page of this book looks like this-
You: Will it be beneficial for me? I have joined/ not joined any coaching.
Me: It really doesn’t matters. When it comes to exam time, the focus should be on practicing problems, rather than reading notes & books. In such a case, this handbook will prove to be very handy. Easy revision, to the point review of the topics. That’s what everyone needs at the time of exams.
You: (Yaaawning..) Man..Now you are boring me. Now end this post by a short conclusion & also by telling me where can i get this book. I haven’t checked by fb account for like 5 minutes!
Me: For me, this book is indispensable for GATE & IES aspirants. I assure you, you will never repent after buying this book. Even if you have one of made easy or cengage, you will definitely enjoy reading this book. Since i have brought only one of electrical, still i strongly believe that other branches handbooks will also be equally good.
So, don’t wait, go buy this book before it goes out of stock or at least check it out. You can get this book at-

PS: Even if you are feeling that i am advertising for this book, i want to tell you that i am not. I will be reviewing some more books very soon. I am waiting for your reviews & comments. If you have any more questions, i will be more than happy to answer them.
