    A textbook generally takes you through the material step by step, starting with the easiest and moving on to more difficult tasks. A reference book is usually categorized, designed so you can look things up easily. They aren't really intended to be read straight through.

    If you want to study something comprehensively, a textbook would be better. If there are only a few things you need to know on the topic, a reference book might be better as those things would be easier to find.

    List of geography books:

    Physical Geography by Strahler & Strahler
    Principles of Geomorphology by W.D. Thornbury
    Physical Geography - Made Simple, Rupa Publisher
    Physical Geography in Diagrams by Bunnett
    Physical Geography by Savindra Singh

    Fundamentals of Classed Thermodynamics - Van Wylen
    2. Heat Transfer - Gupta Prakash
    3. Heat and Mass Transfer - R. Yadav
    4. Energy Conversion - Sukhalmoy
    5. Environmental Pollution Central Engineering C S Rao
    6. Surveying and Levelling - T P Kanetakar

    10. Theory of Mechanism and Mechanics - Jagdish Lal.
    11. Mechanic of Solids - Popru
    12. Manufacturing Science - Ghosh and Malik
