[Preparation] Books for Preparation of CIC B.Tech. Entrance DU 2020

Your sources should be LIMITED, and focus should be on solving as many questions + papers as you can.

The written entrance test of two hours duration will be based on (as per 2018)

  • Mathematics till 10+2 level
  • Reasoning
  • Analytical ability

Reasoning and Analytical Ability

This portion of the paper is relatively easy, and you can even score full marks here! These questions take less then one minute to solve. Usually consisting of a paragraph,  these are fun to solve, and give you more time to answer the mathematics portion well.

Best book for Mental Ability – Course in Mental Ability and Quantitative Aptitude

Book review – Book Review – Mental Ability


You should limit your sources into two categories –

  • Theory/ Formula books
  • Revision/ Practice Questions books

Formula Handbook – I’ve extensively used this book during the boards, JEE Main, JEE Advanced and during the last days before the CIC’s entrance exam. The book really, really helped as the direct formula based questions were easily solvable. This book also contains summarized theory for quick revision.

Handbook of Mathematics by Arihant

Theory – Use your JEE modules/booklets for theory and examples, for the chapters which you are weak in. It can also be used for solving a lot of questions for practice.

If you didn’t prepare for JEE –

  • Use a JEE specific book for the preparation.
  • Start first by solving the whole NCERT of class 11th and 12th again.

For the topics in which you are weak,

A Master Resource Book in MATHEMATICS for JEE Main

You can also use a BITSAT specific book, but the level of the questions should be difficult. I’ll recommend the book by Arihant, because the mode of test is online, similar to BITSAT. You need to give some tests on computer to be comfortable while giving the actual examination.
