It is not surprising that there are so many books for NEET as it is one of the most important exams in the life of medical aspirants. However, it is important to understand which books to follow for as the toppers say, being thorough with one good book is better than being familiar with many books.
The aim here is to not only know the concepts and topics in the syllabus but also to be aware of their application and thereby develop the ability to apply them. There are of course many ways to arrive at a solution but not all of them are simple and fast, it is necessary to know the best way to solve a numerical problem and thereby maximize efficiency. Thus, the books that help the aspirants in this regard are not just good in terms of theory but also varied in their content so that they offer the aspirant enough variety to be able to apply the concepts in real life.
So, here is a list of the best books one can use to ace the NEET exams:
Physics is one of the most difficult parts of the NEET exam. This section comprises 50 questions which have a maximum of 180 marks and contain mostly questions on Electrostatics, Mechanics, and Electronics dominate. The best book for this is the NCERT Physics book which provides an immense range of numerical problems to solve and thereby helps to be thorough in them. The other books that are comparable in this area of Physics are Concepts of Physics by H.C. Verma. For the objective portions of this subject, D.C. Pandey is very useful. Other comparable books are:
- Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker
- Fundamental Physics by Pradeep
- Problems in General Physics by IE Irodov
The section on Chemistry carries a maximum of 180 marks and contains questions based on three sections- Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, and Physical Chemistry. The physical section carries numerical-based questions, therefore it is important to refer to books that offer a wide range of numerical. The inorganic section is often called the easiest section when compared with the other two for it consists of memory-based questions. The book by J. D. Lee includes multiple-choice questions which are good for students preparing for NEET Chemistry and is considered very useful for extensive knowledge. The organic section needs practice and revision as it depends on a thorough understanding of knowledge.
Some of the other books are:
- NCERT Chemistry textbooks for Class XI and XII
- Physical Chemistry by OP Tandon
- ABC of Chemistry for Classes 11 and 12 by Modern
- Concise Inorganic Chemistry by JD Lee
- Dinesh Chemistry Guide
- Practise books by VK Jaiswal (Inorganic), MS Chauhan (Organic), and N Awasthi (Physical)
This section of the syllabus includes both zoology and botany. The biology section of NEET has a total of 100 questions which together carry a maximum of 360 marks. It is one of the most important sections and candidates should pay more attention to this section as it is prescribed weightage. For this section, it is important to focus on books that will help in retaining the concepts and will also prepare them for objective questions. The first book on the list here for the NEET exam is the NCERT Class XI and XII Biology books. NCERT books help to clear the basics of the aspirants and also help by providing a guide to them. However, it is advised that candidates also refer to other books as this section are the most important section of the exam which are:
- Biology Vol 1 and Vol 2 by Trueman
- Objective Biology by Dinesh
- Objective Botany by Ansari
- Pradeep Guide on Biology
- GR Bathla publications for Biology
However, having a list of the best books is not guaranteed to help you succeed although it is the starting point. It is important to have guidance and a strategy in place when going through the syllabus. It is also important to have a revision strategy to help the aspirant get the most out of the books that they are referring to.
This is what EXPRTO offers to the aspirants struggling with their syllabus- mentorship from those who have succeeded in their efforts to ace the exams.
