Tips on books to read for jamb
Using the wrong textbooks to prepare for jamb, is likely to affect your performance in JAMB examination, and the only solution to this is to get the best textbooks and read them.
Don’t make the mistake of buying a fake textbook, always check the title, the name of the author(s) of the textbook and the name of the publishers of the textbook if it corresponds with the ones here.
You should know that it is not really necessary to get all of these textbooks, but try to purchase one or two of it. . Avoid buying fake textbooks.
Never try to use the wrong textbook when preparing for jamb. These textbooks below have been recommended by Jamb when preparing to sit for the examination.
Don’t just buy the book, read and understand what you have read, also make sure that you use your jamb syllabus when reading.
Most of these textbooks have excersises that you can do after each topic, I admonish you to try them out. Even though you made a mistake or what you did was wrong, check out the back of the textbook for answers and make corrections to your mistakes
