Best Books for GATE-2023 | Chemical Engineering

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a national level exam among engineering students and it open the doors for higher studies (M.Tech./M.S./PhD) and jobs especially PSU recruitments.

GATE-2023 updates: This year IIT Kanpur is going to conduct the exam on 4, 5, 11 and 12 February 2023. The online application portal will be opened for the registration in the first week of September 2022. For more details visit

Chemical Engineering is one of the papers that GATE exam offers to the candidates. There are around 15000+ students participate every year. This stream has 12 important subjects including

Mass Transfer (MT),

Heat Transfer (HT),

Fluid Flow (FF),

Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE),


Process dynamics and Instrumentation Control (PDC),

Chemical Technology (CT),

Process Calculations (CEPC),

Mechanical Operations (MO),

Plant Design and Economics (PDE),

Mathematics and


Now to prepare for this exam we need resources including subjectwise text books, GATE -preparation books, handwritten notes and websites to prepare the concepts and practice the previous year GATE questions.

Today, we will discuss the highly recommended books for GATE-preparations.

Handwritten Notes - Extra perk.
