  2. You can watch some YouTube videos since there are many, to clear the concepts of some mechanisms. You don’t want to miss out on some fundamental essential topics without understanding them, do you?
  3. Yes A.K Jain is the recommended book in most colleges, but no one is forcing you to read A.K Jain. Well, A.K. Jain is still the simplest book I have ever seen, but if you need K Sembulingam or Guyton, you can always check them out too.
