Do you know what the most important thing for a student is? According to Schoolokay, choosing the correct reference book for class 12
When you think about reference books, you get confused as there are a lot of books available on the market, and you only need one of them. Because after class 12, you have to face a lot of entrance exams and competitive exams.
To crack these exams, class 12 reference books are essential, so this post will contain all the details about the best reference books for class 12 and how to use them properly.
Many of you may have plans to get into the best college, crack entrance exams, or achieve any other career-related goal.
These things are secondary. Presently, you only need to focus on one thing, i.e., your class 12 board exams from 2021–22.
You know, things are quite different now. The entire education system is shifting toward online classes.
So, you need to be very focused as you'll not be getting the benefits that you used to get before. And if you're aiming to crack any competitive exams like JEE mains, NDA, or any other competitive exam after class 12th, then you must give your 100% to it. Read the entire post.
Q1. Which reference book is the best for class 12?
All reference books are good because all publishers make every effort to get their books into the market.
So the only point you need to consider is which one you're purchasing for yourself because some reference books are good for theory, others for numericals and competitive exams.
CLASS 12 REFERENCE BOOKS ARE BASED ON FOUR THINGS.
- Some are good for theory.
- Some are good for numeric.
- Sample papers are useful for exams.
- Some class 12 reference books are suitable for competitive exams.
- You need to check a few things in a reference book before purchasing it.
- The number of questions in the reference book
- The reference book for class 12 must have relevant data for exams.
- The reference book for class 12 must not be stuffed with too much irrelevant data.
- The book must have a simple language.
After checking all these things, you can buy reference books for your class 12. Remember one thing: don't waste too much money on buying more than two reference books.
Because I hardly get time to solve all the reference books for class 12th, You only have one year, and you must prepare for both the Class 12 board exams and competitive exams at the same time.
HOW YOU CAN USE YOUR CLASS 12 REFERENCE BOOKS IN THE BEST WAY.
I have seen students purchase expensive reference books for class 12 and don't use them. They only copy NCERT solutions from these class 12th reference books.
If you only want to see solutions, then you must buy a NANDLAL DAYARAM (ND). Instead of looking for NCERT solutions in your class 12 reference books, you should solve these books to improve your problem-solving skills.

- PHYSICS - HC VERMA THE CONCEPT OF PHYSICS.
- CHEMISTRY - ARIENT PUBLICATION AND MODERN ABC.
- MATHS - ARIENT PUBLICATION.
If you're targeting any competitive exam after class 12th, then you must join the test series of any coaching institute because that gives you a fair idea about the nature of the exam.
NOW, COMPETITION EXAMS AFTER CLASS 12,
First, schoolokay wants to discuss something about coaching institutes for competitive exams, because schoolokay has seen students being guided wrongly in schools and in coaching institutes as well.
If you are aware enough, eventually all the students from the science stream prepare for IIT JEE, and students from commerce prepare for CA and CS. Biology students prepare for AIIMS.
These are the most common exams, and almost every student aims for these exams, although they have a limited number of seats. Why do students risk everything for these exams?
Because of the misinformation, and most students are not even aware of that because they're too desperate to get into these top colleges, the fee structure for preparation exams is very high.
Students are charged 1 lakh or more for preparing for these exams, and then if they get into colleges, they charge very high tuition fees. It ranges between 15 and 17 lacs for IITs, IIMs, and AIIMS. Think before going to a coaching institute two times.
Did you know why this happens? When I look back at my school days, as I was from a science stream with math's and computer science, the only thing I knew after my 12th was engineering.
And for that, I have to prepare for IIT JEE. Nobody in school told me about blogs, vlogs, and YouTube. because
they don't know about that. My teachers never informed me about ways of earning or how to create something. They just want me to learn things by heart and crack these exams. Due to a lack of information, I have seen many students kill their dreams.
So, you must do some research before taking any further steps in life. How many seats are there in the IIT JEE? Do you have an idea about the number of students who fill out forms for these competitive exams after 12?
These images convey a clear picture of competition. Indian students die every year. Parents get depressed after losing their kids. So what kind of education system do we have? I don't understand.
So, from school, it's an appeal to students: only jump into this trap when you really want to do engineering by heart; otherwise, do what you love, because today you can make your passion your occupation.
One hundred thousand people are doing it, and I don't think there is any need for an example. Just visit this post if you are looking for what to do after 12th science. If you need any guidance about your class 12 and what to do after class 12, just let me know in the comments.
IS NCERT BOOK ENOUGH FOR BOARD EXAMS 2022?
I think yes because boards are no longer the same. The new boards are different because they are MCQ-based.
So no more long answers and explanations, because no one is going to like explanations anymore. That's why you need to choose books that are totally dedicated to pure answers, and NCERT is just enough for that.
So now it's time to use the share buttons and let the magic begin.
