Best Physics books NEET Preparation suggested

NEET best books for Physics have been enlisted in this article. Candidates preparing for the examination can get all the information about the best books here.

NEET Physics section can be tricky for a lot of aspirants. The technicalities and concepts are very important when it comes to this section of NEET. Often, candidates who wish to pursue a Medicine course are well-versed in Biology and Chemistry, but not all are comfortable with Physics. NTA will release the notification for NEET by December-end or early January and the NEET application form is expected to be released in March.

With less than six months left before the exam, it is time for choosing the right books for NEET preparation, which play an important role. Last year, the NEET exam pattern or structure had changed. It is likely that the same pattern will be continued this year as well. Physics subject is divided into two sections. Section A will carry 35 questions and Section B will carry 15 questions, out of which 10 questions have to be attempted. Hence, the Biology section carries the highest weightage. The key to scoring good marks in any subject is choosing the right study material at each step of preparation. Candidates preparing for NEET Physics are advised to begin their preparation with NCERT books and the question papers of previous years. Once they are thorough with these, they can refer to the other books for NEET preparation.

Top NEET Physics Preparation Books

Experts and toppers suggest starting NEET preparation with NCERT books. They are easier to understand and will help build a strong foundation for preparation.

  1. NCERT Textbook for Class 11 Physics
  2. NCERT Exemplar Problems for Class 11 Physics  
  3. NCERT Textbook for Class 12 Physics
  4. NCERT Exemplar Problems and Solutions for Class 12 Physics

To excel in Physics, the candidate must solve the various numerical-based questions of different difficulty levels. Also, during the initial stages of preparation, a book with solved questions proves beneficial. This is where the NCERT Exemplar books come in handy. A combination of the above books and the question papers of previous years will help clear the basics and indeed build a strong foundation.

After completing the basics from the NCERT books, candidates can start solving mock tests and practice papers. This will take their preparation to the next level. Aspirants can then refer to the following books for NEET Physics.

  1. Concepts of Physics by H C Verma (Part 1 and 2)
  2. Understanding Physics
    • Mechanics Volume 1 and 2
    • Electricity and Magnetism
    • Optics and Modern Physics
    • Waves and Thermodynamics by DC Pandey
  3. Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick & Walker
  4. Problems in General Physics by I E Irodov
  5. Problems and solution of Physics by Shashi Bhushan Tiwari
  6. Problems in physics by S S Krotov            
  7. Understanding Physics by Freedman and Young
