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 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 of 20-21.
You know that 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 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?
Just keep in mind that all reference books have the same content explained in different languages.
The only difference between class 12th reference books is the number of questions and the language of the author.
So, you don't have to worry too much. Just purchase any reference book that you can understand and solve.
CLASS 12 REFERENCE BOOKS ARE BASED ON FOUR THINGS.
- Some are good for theory.
- Some are good for numericals.
- 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 in buying more than two reference books for yourself.
Because you'll not get enough time to solve all the reference books of class 12th. You only have one year, and in that, you've to prepare for class 12 board exams and for competitive exams both 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 in these class 12th reference books.
This is the worst thing that you can do with your parents' money. 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 must solve these reference books to improve your question-solving skills.
SOME TIPS FOR USING YOUR CLASS 12 REFERENCE BOOKS THIS YEAR.
Use your reference books to improve your scores on class 12 board exams.
- If you have a reference book, then you must go through it.
- Solve all problems for practice.
- Solve each mocks after every chapter of your reference book.
- Revise everything on Sundays.
1. If you have a reference book for class 12, then you must go through it.
I have seen students who don't even bother to open their books. It's kind of stupid that you have spent 400-500 rupees, and now you're not even using that book.
You must go through the reference books because they play a major role in cracking entrance exams like DU, JNU, IPU and other universities. The questions
that appear in these college entrance exams are from your class 12 reference books. That's why you must focus on your class 12 reference books.
2. Solve the problems for practice in your class 12 reference books.
If you have reference books for class 12, then you must have seen the problems for practice. These questions you will see after each topic.
These questions make your concepts stronger. You must solve each and every single one of these questions.
I have observed a big difference between students who solve these questions and those who don't. According to school, you must solve these questions to score well in your class 12 board exams.
3.solve each mock test behind each chapter of your reference book.
You must solve these mock tests on time, as time is mentioned above in the mock test. This will improve your speed of answering your questions.
What will happen by solving mocks?
This will improve your scores for board exams this year, and it will also work for other reviews as well.
4. Revise all topics every Sunday.
This advice seems quite common, but the most important one is that, because of our minds, the human brain needs repetition of things to remember. For example, you have seen the ads on your TV.
They are too repetitive so that customers buy products. Big advertising companies use these techniques.
So you must revise for at least a month. If you revise the course regularly, you will not need to ask stupid questions like this. How can I score 90% in one month? I will answer all these questions later.
Let's discuss reference books;

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 wrong 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. Students from biology prepare for AIIMS.
These are the most common exams, and almost every student aims for these exams, although these exams 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.
Students are charged 1 lac or more for preparing for these exams, and then if they get into colleges, they charge very high tuition fees. It is about 15-17 lacs for IIT, 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 maths 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 the 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 rote things and crack these exams. I have seen many students kill their dreams due to a lack of information. So, you must do some research before taking any steps further in life. How many seats are there in IIT JEE?
Do you have an idea about the number of students who fill out forms for these competitive exams after 12?
These images lend a sharp idea about 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.
100 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 12 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 2020?
The most asked question on Quora. The answer is yes, without any doubt, because if you solve your NCERT fully 2 times, I am 100% sure that you can score above 90+ in class 12. For some topics, you need class 12th reference books as well. You can purchase reference books as I have discussed above.
So for class board exams in 2020, you need both. Why are reference books not suitable for competitive exams?
Reference books for class 12 only provide specific topics, but questions asked in competitive exams require a different approach, plus these exams certify your entire class 6 to level 12 knowledge.
So you can't rely on reference books for class 12th to score high on completion exams like IIT JEE, or other exams.
Another reason is that the questions in the competitive exams change from year to year, and class 12 reference books do not. Furthermore, revised additions also have the same problems.
I hope you got the point.
If you have further questions, just let me know in the comments, and if you like the post, share it. If you have questions in mind, like, Do we need coaching for competitive exams? From where can I get coaching? What should I do after class 10th?
If you are a student and reading this, leave a comment with Yes or NO.
