  • BCA course syllabus and lessons will be sent by the university and the notes sent by them will be good. I don't think you require any other guides separately.
    Annamalai Univerity is very famous for distance education and I know many people who did courses through this institute and obtained the degrees. If you read the notes given by them, you will understand the subjects well. They will mention some reference books and if possible you can refer to those books.
    If you have any friends who are doing BCA in the college, you can ask them their notes and see them. As we go for higher classes, depending on the guides is not a good practice and you will not get a grip on the subject properly. Even though you get the degree afterwards getting a job will become very difficult. So I suggest you follow the notes given by the college, Still, if you feel you want guides you can go to a good book shop which sells college textbooks and guides in Trivandrum.

  • It is really a good news that you have registered yourself with Annamalai University for the course of BCA since this university imparts quality education in almost all the courses including BCA through the distance mode.
    Regarding the syllabus and the course structure to be followed in each semester of the course, you will get their instructions and the same is to be followed up. There are plenty of books in the market providing you help for the upcoming semesters but the same might not cover the syllabus of your course since the contents are written in general for all aspirants interested to complete BCA. Omission of any chapter/ contents can impact your smooth preparation for the ensuing examination.
    Hence it is better to follow up the directives of the authorities of the concerned university for your better scores.

  • It is good to search for such guide books from the booksellers of Old/used books in your area or you can approach the following old/new book sellers.

  • You have registered for distance education and you would be getting the standard course material from the institute from time to time. It is advisable to make your own notes after studying that material. Making one's own notes helps in bringing the original touch in it and that helps in scoring in the exams.

    Anyway, for additional material, one might require some standard textbooks and guide material for which one has to search in the leading textbook stores. I have also found some information in this regard and would like to share it here.

There is a rule of every distance university that they send syllabus and course material after registering the candidate. So, you need to be worried about this.
