Best Books for Placement Preparation

Placement preparation is often overwhelming for a final year student as the syllabus for written test is vast and is spread across three major sections namely Quantitative Aptitude, Verbal Ability, and Logical Reasoning. Some companies also test the student's technical knowledge in the written exam. Even though placement classes are provided by the college, it becomes imperative for a student to go back home and solve the questions from every topic. This is a must because the teachers can only cover the concepts and solve a few questions on it. While practicing, the student can know the specific type of question asked in a company’s placement drive and the time one takes to solve a question. But the major dilemma starts when the student has to select one from the many best books for placement preparation available in the market.

To make this job simple for you, we are compiling a list of the Best Books for Placement Preparation.

Best Books for Placement Preparation

It explains the concepts of mathematics in an easy-to-grasp manner and has fully solved examples for each topic. It also has practice questions for each topic. Even though this book is in the list of best books for placement preparation, it does not contain Verbal Ability or Logical Reasoning Questions.

Best Reasoning Books For Placement Preparation - A Modern Approach to verbal and non-verbal Reasoning by R.S.Aggarwal

This is one of the best books for placement preparation and most sought-after book for the logical reasoning section. All the Reasoning topics required for the exam are covered in this book and are organized in a specific way for easy understanding. This book gives a much shorter, faster and intelligent approach to reasoning. It also has practice questions and solved examples along with shortcut tricks. The major disadvantage of this book is that it doesn’t explain the concepts clearly and can only be used for practice purpose. It also covers only the reasoning section and hence, the student has to use other books for verbal and quantitative attitude preparation.
