NEET 2020 | NEET Syllabus

Best Books for NEET - Physics, Chemistry And Biology (Botany & Zoology)

Some students may have started the preparation, some might be in between it or some may have completed it and looking for supplements for neet preparation.

One thing is sure, that students of all three categories (mentioned above) must be looking for the best book for neet preparation. But, guess what, you don’t have to be worried about that. Study from NCERT and you’ll cover the major concepts for the exam.

A survey had shown that students, who appeared in the neet exam, have said that more than 50% of the questions are from NCERT book. 

You read it right. Students don’t have to have 10 supplementary books for each subject to prepare for neet.

Check out these simple process of how to Prepare for NEET Exam.

You don’t have time to waste, so study from the books which have ample share of questions and can really help to get through the exam.

What students should be really worried about is the important chapters for neet exam from the NCERT book.

Instead of focusing on quantity, neet aspirants should focus on quality. By this I mean, focus more on what’s gonna help you clear the exam and don’t just fill up your bookshelf.

However, I totally understand that NCERT books are not enough to cover all the concepts. But that really doesn’t mean that students should have 10 extra books for each subject.

Students should only have 1 additional book for each subject. And here they are:

For an effective preparation of NEET, the best advise for students is to study all of the ncert chapters for physics, chemistry and bio and follow one book each as for reference and problem solving.

To simplify the study pattern, let us take a close look at the time available for preparation and the find the best possible way to allocate this time towards completing the entire syllabus. a student that begins preparation from their eleventh standard will have roughly 108 weeks of time before they appear for the exam, of which 4 weeks maybe kept aside specifically for the board exams, 4 weeks for all school based tests and 4 more weeks to cover all festivities and recreational or productive activities besides studying. this leaves us with over 90 weeks that could be geered towards preparation for the NEET exam.

There are 97 chapters to be covered in bio, phy and chemistry combined; it will take roughly around 400 hours to have studied all chapters from the ncert textbooks, another 700 hours to include coaching and time expended on watching online videos and another 2000 hours to solve at least 100 problems for each chapter translating to an overall 9700 problems that need to solved in total. the total time required, therefore, to finish these exercises sums upto 3100 hours, which when divided between the 90 weeks of time thats available for preparation means one has to study at least 36 hours a week, consistently.

Following are the additional reference books that maybe followed for each subject:
