Summary : Chemical Engineering for GATE & Other Competitions 1st Edition

A treatise which comprehensively covers all the topics of Chemical Engineering in simple and lucid language with Illustrations, Solved Problems and Objective Type Exercises with Solutions.

The Book provides A Clear exposition of fundamentals and principles of 'Chemical Engineering' as per latest syllabi to meet the complete requirements of students preparing for GATE, or any other similar type of competitive exams. This book will also be very useful for engineering students doing degree, diploma, AMIE, AMIIChE etc. in chemical engineering.

This book is written with the firm conviction that A Good book is one that can be read with minimum guidance from instructor. To achieve this each topic is well supplemented with theory and mathematical derivations in simple und lucid form alongwith number of diagrams, solved examples selected from previous years question papers.

The book also contains number of Objective type questions and important typical questions of GATE. Another salient feature of the book is inclusion of useful tips for interview preparation, which invariably follows the objective type test conducted for screening purpose. The sample interviews will give flavour of the type of questions usually asked in the interview.

The book is a step in the direction of offering a wide cross-section of examines a comprehensive preparation package to help them in their quest for succeeding in the intended competitive examination.
