Preparation is a continuous process. However, having a plan is essential to provide a routine as it gives an edge and method of preparing for NEET at home. So, the very first step is to realize that time is valuable and a slight wastage of it may have an everlasting effect. Be it the school tests, exams and homework, everything has to be incorporated into the preparation strategy for NEET at home.
In order to crack the NEET exam, a thorough look into the syllabus is a prerequisite. Only if you know the NEET 2020 syllabus well, can you prepare for NEET at home without hassles. NEET syllabus has its base in the NCERT textbooks. Making a mind map of the syllabus would be handy to keep the preparation of NEET exam on track. It will also help in realizing the strong and weak areas and can be useful in determining the topics that need more time and efforts.
To prepare for NEET at home, regularity is an essential concept. Since you will not be a part of coaching classrooms, you will have to design as well as follow your own time table. Therefore, a smooth and hassle-free time table will be helpful in maintaining the continuity to achieve the goal. Different students have different study habits. So, determine your capacity to sit and concentrate. You can start with a minimum of three hours daily and can stretch the study hours as you pick up the pace of preparation. In this way, it will not be burdensome. However, it is extremely important to follow the time table! Except for urgent unavoidable circumstances, nothing should deter you from sticking to the time table. One can infer the importance of being regular in the words of Sivananda Saraswati, “That man who is regular and punctual will get sure success in all walks of life.”
It would become evident from a look into the syllabus that NCERT textbooks for class 11 and 12 are the keys to the important topics. These textbooks are also followed in the schools affiliated to the CBSE. Therefore, you should do the best efforts in reading the NCERTs with proper understanding in order to give a smooth start to your preparation for NEET at home.
Self-studying comes with dual responsibility. One has to learn and also find ways to enhance learning by continuously exploring books and study material. This is an advantageous task because reading the concepts never goes in vain. Nonetheless, here is a list of some books that can be referred so that you can save time from getting invested in searching for add-on material:
Trueman’s Objective Biology for NEET by M.P Tyagi
Pradeep’s Publication Biology
40 Days Biology for NEET by S. Chakravarty
Physical Chemistry by O.P Tandon
Organic Chemistry by Morrison
Boyd for Organic Chemistry
Objective Chemistry by R.K Gupta
40 Days Chemistry for NEET by Sudhanshu Thakur
Concepts of Physics by H.C Verma
Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick and Walker
Physics for NEET by C.P Singh
40 Days Physics for NEET by S.B Tripathi
Always remember that “Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary”, as quoted by Jim Rohn.
While one prepares for NEET at home, it is imperative to practise the questions to check the clarity of the concepts learnt. It also enhances the level of understanding the language of questions. Therefore, practising the mock tests is as essential as learning the concept in the first place. Solving mock tests also develops the habit of completing the questions within the stipulated time.
Self-evaluation gives a better insight into what you have prepared and where you lagged. It allows for the acknowledgement of the mistakes without any bias. This is essential to build up a strong conceptual knowledge. Therefore, testing yourself after every new conceptual reading would not only enhance the retention capacity but would also allow the exploration of left out or mistaken concepts. So, be your own strict checking examiner!
It is said that the human brain tends to lose out the facts if not revised on a regular basis. This is prevalent to most of us. But a chance of losing conceptual information cannot be taken while one is preparing for NEET at home. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that your time table comes with a day fixed for revision only or you can revise the concepts every alternate day before sleeping or every morning as you wake up fresh to the new day! Revision can be made fun if the concepts, diagrams, formulas are carved out on a paper or sheet and pasted around your study place.
Remember that self-study to prepare for NEET at home requires a lot of focus and determination. So, come what may always find a source of determination that could sail you across your self-preparation journey. Do not go very hard on yourself. It is always refreshing to keep your hobbies alive. In fact, taking a day or two off from your schedule is also allowed as long as the much sought after focus and determination are on track. Keep your food habits healthy so that you can minimize the occurrence of sick days. Be creative in your own way to stay motivated!
