Apoorva Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019

Hello dear student,

Dear student both the books are really good but I would suggest you to go with mtg fingertip . I would suggest you to buy mtg fingertips and with that you should also buy previous year question paper booklet. also go through NCERT as many times as you can because NCERT is considered as god and maximum part in biology section comes directly from NCERT. Mtg fingertips is really handy book you will get all the important points highlighted that you should remember . while there are other good books for biology too that you should refer if you want to score good in NEET. But I will force you to study NCERT very thoroughly remember each and every line . study NCERT biology with interest only then you will be able to remember important points so whenever the question will come in front of you would already know the answer of it.

Hello Rishu

Yes, you are eligible to write NEET from UP, even though you want to take admission in a college of Delhi. The admission is taken on the basis of your marks and rank, so it does not matter from which state you have given the exam. But you won't get the benefit of state quota.

Hope it helps you.
