Many students prefer to follow or study those books and guides that have been suggested by their tutors and teachers. There is no harm in it as these books have very minute details, which will help them to solve the problems. But, if I would ask the students to refer to NCERT books they would be surprised. This is because many people believe that board text books are of no use when it comes to JEE preparation and simply ignore them. But, it is a big mistake that students make by ignoring them. JEE toppers have validated the point that it is not possible to crack JEE or any other competitive exam in India without referring to NCERT books.

- Since, they are so simple and self sufficient that they save your time, that you might lose if directly jumping to high level books. I don’t say that these books should not be used or referred to, but not when you are looking to strengthening your fundamentals.
- There might be fewer questions in the book for practice, but all the questions and the examples showcased in NCERT books cover all important aspects of syllabus. There are times when the questions in the paper have directly been taken from these books. A simple example in the NCERT Book might be posed as a tricky question in the examination.
