I've been thinking of making a list of all time, most popular engineering books related to general engineering.

@Raviteja.g • 21 Nov, 2008 mathematics is required for all branches so it is general
Engineering mathematics
author -B.S.grewal
@sauravgoswami • 21 Nov, 2008 fundamentals of physic is also very famous..authors wary though
@shalini_goel14 • 15 Dec, 2008 Most popular books for Computer Science Engineers are:

1. Computer Networks,Tannenbaum
2. Cryptography,William Stallings
3. Operating System,Gelvin
4. DBMS, Korthe
5. Compiler, Aho Sethi Ullman
6. Data Warehousing, Alex Berson
7. Algorithms, Coremann
8. Java, Complete Reference

If i will be able to recall more books ,i will post it 😀.
@silverscorpion • 16 Dec, 2008 Not strictly an engineering text book, but I think that "A brief history of time" by Stephen Hawkins is a good book related to engineering. Just a thought...

A physics book, I'd say. A must read for every engineer though. [​IMG]
@Lock-Os • 16 Dec, 2008 The Way Things Works is probably one of the most popular engineering books ever written. The Machinist Handbook would most likely come up second for the more mechanical fields.

I have to say that textbooks are hard to judge since they vary from school to school and version to version, and I wouldn't say they are 'popular'. More like required.
@superb8effect • 18 Dec, 2008 General Engineering: McGraw-Hill's Engineering Companion by Ejup N. Ganic and Tyler G. Hicks (eds) Electrical Engineering: Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers, Fourteenth Edition by Donald G. Fink and H. Wayne Beaty (eds) Industrial Engineering: Maynard's Industrial Engineering Handbook, Fifth Edition by Kjell B. Zandin (ed) Quality Engineering: Taguchi's Quality Engineering Handbook by Genichi Taguchi, Subir Chowdhury and Yuin Wu Waste Treatment: Industrial Waste Treatment Handbook, Second Edition by Woodard & Curran, Inc. Aeronautical Engineering: Standard Handbook for Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineers by Mark Davies (ed) Chemical Engineering: Chemical Engineering Design: Principles, Practice and Economics of Plant and Process Design by Gavin Towler and R. K. Sinnott Civil Engineering: Architectural Engineering Design: Mechanical Systems by Robert Brown Butler Control Engineering: Modern Sensors Handbook by Pavel Ripka and Alois Tipek (eds) That's what I think are good ones. I find it on <snipped>
@syedaafaq • 20 Dec, 2008 according to me.......
the engineering books can be classified in to two types:
1.books for clearing the subjects
2.books for understanding the concepts deeply
for clearing the subjects i would suggest the books from technical publications-pune.....
for the purpose of understanding the concepts deeply the books from the publications of tata mcgraw hill and prientice hall edition- new delhi.....
@komputergeek • 24 Dec, 2008 I think for clearing the subject any text book is good.
