— The presentation of the subject matter is very systematic and language of the text
is quite lucid and simple to understand.
— A number of figures have been added in each chapter to make the subject matter
self speaking to a great extent.
— A large number of properly graded examples have been added in various chapters
to enable the students to attempt different types of questions in the examination
without any difficulty.
— Highlights, objective type questions, theoretical questions, and unsolved examples
have been added at the end of each chapter to make the book a complete unit in
