Books for Section A

We often come across the books that would be better for reference. The prospectus of IIIE has a god listing of books for every subject, but does not cover the full requirements of the syllabus. This post is to place on the public domain the list of books that I referred to and found to be of use.

1) Probability and Statistical Methods: 
Select one Plus-2 (commerce) + any university B.Com bok on statistics.

2)Operations Research: 
Operations Research by Hira Gupta

3)Business Accounting and Costing: 
Select one Plus-2 (commerce) + any university B.Com bok on accounting.

4)Principles and Practices of Management: 
Select any MBA management book

5)Work System Design: 
ILO book on Work System Design.

6)Manufacturing Technology: 
Refer to workshop technology by Hajra Chowdry

7)Information Technology and Systems: 
Use google/ Internet. www.Wikipedia.com  has all the answers for this subject 
(best for this Subject :-) )

8)System Approach: 
Seriously there is no single book for this subject.

The above just covers the requirement to score about 60% marks. Referring to multiple books is recommend for better understanding of the subject. Please note that there is no single book of any given subject, that covers all the requirement of the syllabus.
I would strongly recommend the students to be internet and computer savvy. It will help your know how in general and at the end of the day, its your know how that matters and not the % of marks.
