I would describe Industrial engineering syllabus as aptitude questions and management theory. Most of the time you don’t need to put your brain into work just put the values follow a procedure and its done. Many formulas and definitions to be remembered with 3-4 readings it will fit in your brain and little revision will revive all of industrial engineering from your memory. Those in final year generally have problem with this as in 7-8th semester you do these subjects so you may not have already done but reading on your own solving few objective will suffice.

Do I need to read book?
For those who are preparing on there own book is quite essential. Since in the notes there are many topics which are not explicitly explained so in order to understand the concept its necessary to have a reference book. Please note that never ever use local author books which students use to pass university semester exams they will never help. Always follow standard textbooks.
Those who are in coaching institutes who don’t get much time to study from a book they may prefer not to but in case of important topics or confusions books are the best refuge.
Which book to refer?
Its always preferred to read book that you have already studied during your BTech. In case you didn’t read any 🙂 like most of the engineers.
Following are the books that i would recommend-
|Operation Research By Hira and Gupta|
Introduction to Management Science Operations Research By Kanti Swarup
