*If you are starting with the course, then you may buy the books in the Miscellaneous Section only. Later, your faculty will prescribe other books in class.*

## A word about **Solution Manuals:**

No one learned Mathematics by reading solutions. Instead, try **sequential hints. **Cheenta website has many such discussion on problems from past papers of I.S.I. & C.M.I. We are also in the process of transforming existing solutions into sequential hints:

Will these books helful for the preparation of mstat

Yes. At least partially.

For the college mathematics standard problems, you will need other books.
