Class 9th Jan 30, 2021 7 mins read

Deciding on a reference book for yourself is kind of arduous. Students always struggle with that, so, schoolokay has decided to make it easy for you.
Before that, you must understand a few things about reference books for class 9 or reference books for class 10th.

You need reference books for each class, some students prefer NCERT which's also good, but you must try to go through these reference books, to understand how things will change in the higher classes.

As schoolokay always suggests reference books that are a must for all students because without going through books, one can't learn essential elements.

So, you must decide what kind of books you want to read? Books that you must read during your schooling years.

This post will also help you with selecting subjects after your class 10th, and with many other items.

Most of the time, a common question asked from me on Quora, is class 9th reference books are essential? Do we require class 9th reference books or just NCERT is enough for class 9th exams?

If you have any such questions, just read the entire post.

I am discussing books that are ruling the market for years and the backbone for scoring in class 9th and other classes as well, for all board students. I have used these reference books during my schooling years, and now I suggest these books to my students.

Many of you may be considering preparing for IIT JEE and other exams, students with such aims have these questions in mind.  

I want to do IIT JEE which Reference book is best? Which reference book is best for board exams? And many more such questions.

I know that for a student, it's crucial to choose the right reference book in class 9th because if he is aiming to crack mega exams, he must choose wisely and utilize these books as well.

You must know one thing and it's the most important. All reference books from all publication house packed with the same material inside only explained in different languages.

If you imagine that different reference books for class 9th contain varied content then you are wrong.

So, don't run behind too many books only get one and stick to that only. Solve it completely.

I hope you got the point if you choose the book you must keep in mind a few things.

  1. Stick to one reference book which has easily understandable content.
  2. Always buy the latest reference books for your classes.
  3. Go through each and every single page of your reference books if you are preparing for some exams.
  4. Select the reference book, which has a natural language that you can read and interpret.


If you are a student and you are reading this post just let me know in the comments, do not forget to comment below, with YES or NO!  Your opinion matters.

All reference books available in the market today are good, and they are loaded with a lot of good content. You need to select only one out of all these reference books.

Don't assume that you can go through all these books in only one year, it's purely a false assumption.

You can't go through all the reference books of class 9th, why?

The reason is simple because all reference books of class 9th contain way lot more content than you can digest.

If you are buying too many reference books for class 9th and not even using them, this is a wastage of money nothing more. You need to select only one reference book with easy and understandable language.

Here some questions?

Which reference book of class 9 is right for you? And how you can use it in the best way?


Every reference book has its merits and demerits. Basically, some reference books are good for numericals, some are for theory.
If you are a student, then you must have seen two kinds of students, one good with numericals and the other good with the theory. Why?

This simply depends on the type of book they use. So, according to schoolokay reference books of class 9th must be chosen correctly so that they give you the real idea of what you are going to face after your class 10th and class 12th.

So, Schoolokay has introduced all kinds of books, which will help you choose the right reference book for class 9, based on theory, numericals, exam time, for JEE mains, and other competitive exams as well.
This list covers all most all the books you can buy for your class 9th.


Books? Best reference books? And why we need these reference books?


You know that when you go through your NCERT books, you don't even get the essential topics, why? Because of the lack of information and shortly explained problems.

For learning these incomplete topics, we use reference books. When it comes to topic explanation, some reference books of class 9th are the best, and they also help you in scoring good marks in class 9th.

All the topics and concepts explained accurately in these reference books of class 9th.
The data is also well arranged in these reference books and carries the right amount of questions to solve.

These books play a significant role in your exams and for competitive exams, and scholarship exams that you can crack with the help of class 9th reference books.

  2. ANTHE
  4. ASAT ( ALLEN Scholarship Cum Admission Test )
  5. VSAT( VIBRANT SCHOLARSHIP CUM APTITUDE TEST)And other similar exams too.


  1. Don't just buy the books, use them properly.
  2. Do assume anything is out of course in reference books, because those things will be needed in the future.
  3. Because the school is a learning place, not a syllabus completing place.
  4. Go through these class 9th reference books seriously.
Remember one thing your practice matters a lot more than buying an expensive book, the more you'll practice the higher you will score, for sure.
