## HOW TO COVER NEET PHYSICS SYLLABUS 2023?

1. Understand the syllabus and NEET Exam pattern

It is important to go through the topics in the NEET Physics syllabus and analyse the marking scheme of the exam.

1. Prepare from NEET books

The best source for covering the NEET Physics syllabus is NCERT textbook. Once you have completed the NCERT and understood the concepts, you may refer to other NEET books, such as:

1. H.C. Verma Concepts of Physics (Volume 1 and 2)
2. Concepts of Competition Physics by Agarwal (for CBSE PMT)

3. Practise questions from past years’ papers on NEET:

Practicing questions from NEET Physics past years’ papers can help you in understanding the exam pattern and strategizing your preparation by dedicating more time to the priority topics. It also helps in improving your speed and accuracy.

1. Make notes

It is important for students to make short notes while studying. It helps in quick revision and helps to cover all the topics before the exam. The concepts and formulae are at the fingertips of the students when they go through the short notes and formulae regularly.

1. Practice Online Mock Tests:

Online mock tests help in the simulation of actual exam conditions. The students can prepare and perform better in the exam if they practice online mock tests regularly. It also helps in covering the NEET Physics syllabus effectively.
