Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

You should look at the ams classes, too. E.g. amsbook rather than plain book since this will automatically get you a bunch of maths set up. But it depends really on the format required by your institution. – cfr Nov 30 '13 at 0:51

book is the most appropriate from the 3, as it provides you with \chapters.

If I were you, I would also consider the memoir class, which provides lots of customization options and is very popular for writing thesis and books.
