Hello Aspirant

When you are giving NEET, the first thing you need to focus is the modules or portion prescribed by the exam committee

Then if you are looking for extra marks to increase your overall aggregate then you can solve HC VERMA OR any other book

But in that case as said first complete your syllabus prescribed then do the extra work .

I hope this helps
