    The books which ICAI board has sent should be preferred to qualify CPT.

    However if you want to prepare more than required from any reference book,refer S.Chand publication.

    Best of luck for your exam.

    First of all, you should have good knowledge
    about the syllabus of the exam. With that keeping
    in mind, you have to choose a number of topics
    which you think you have good command.
    Brush up with those topics as much as you can
    and do practice a lot with the sample papers.
    Time factor also matters a lot ,so mind your time
    efficiency while practicing.
    There are lots of books available for preparing this
    exam. here are some:
    1.Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the Pe
    Exam by Michael R. Lindeburg
    2. Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE
    Exam : A Companion to the Civil Engineering
    Reference Manual by Michael R. Lindeburg
    3. 101 Solved Civil Engineering Problems by
    Michael R. Lindeburg

    I think the best books which should be studied by a student are the books sent by the institute.
    So , in my opinion you should study from those books as they provide the best content and each and every topic is explained in great detail in those books.

    So,you should firstly register for CPT(Common Proficiency Test) with ICAI(full form-Institute of Chartered Accountancy of India) and they would give you some books. In that books they expalin all the topics with the their experience and knowledge in this field.

    They explain all the topics with a careful understanding of the students. They understand this thing that the students know very little about the topics to be prepared for CPT that are -fundamentals of accountancy, economics, mercantile law, etc.
