📚 RPA Book Recommendations

Learning UiPath can be an uphill task. As much as I think video tutorials are awesome, as much do I find books valuable. On average I consume one book per week (fiction and non-fiction). The books below are the best when it comes to learning RPA. I have personally read all of them (and many more). Please note that I will get affiliates on the books, but I would recommend them anyways. Happy reading 🙂


UiPath is the leading RPA vendor benefiting from their free-to-use RPA software and the biggest, and also free, learning path and community.

The topics is also often present in job interview tests, so are you about to prefare for a such, buy this book. Get it on Amazon.
