Top Websites for Students to Download Engineering Textbooks

Buying textbook each semester is difficult. Soon after joining the college. I, myself began to rely on e-book sharing websites. If you search for KTU Engineering Textbooks, hundreds of websites will come up. Most of them are just gimmicks and fake. They tends of offer free books. But soon they will ask you for your credit card information. It is a no brainer not to share the details with them. Since, the authenticity of those websites are doubtful. I have asked few of my senior friends for some good websites. And they gave me a long list of websites. Sadly almost all of them does not exists anymore. I have gone through the rest of all those websites and selected a few from them. Finally I have curated a short list. Therefore the below list will help you save time searching online.

Also, give us a share before going through the list. Because that will encourage us to curate more lists. Most of all, we haven’t checked online purchase options in any of the websites. Try to verify authenticity of website yourselves. Make sure to scan the downloaded files before you execute it. Also, we can assure you the authenticity of Scribd. They are one of the oldest players in the e-book industry.

Finally, before you download any book refer to KTU Syllabus. And make sure to download book those are relevant.
