Best books for NEET Biology Syllabus

Select NCERT books to start preparing for the NEET Biology section. Start with the basics, and move on to more complex text material. Since the diagram is an important part of the biology section, a good reference book with lots of diagrams can be useful.

Experts and toppers suggest the following NEET biology books for beginners:

  1. NCERT Biology Class XI Textbook
  2. NCERT  biology class 12th textbook
  3. MTG Objective NCERT in its Fingertip

After completing NCERT books, one can move towards more complex study material. It includes reference books and question banks. For those candidates who are the intermediate or expert level of preparation.

The following NEET books will be useful for biology:

  1. GR Bathla publications for Biology
  2. Exploring Biology (Vol 1 & 2) Author Name – Sanjay Sharma & Sudhakar Banerjee (Arihant Publications)
  3. 40 Days Biology for NEET – (Author), S. Chakravarty
  4. Medical Entrances Biology (Vol 1, 2 & 3) (Author), Mamta R Solanki & Lalita Ghotik (Target Publications)
