THE BOOKS RECOMMENDED FOR THE PREPARATION OF SCIENCE EXAM IS THE CLASS 10th SCIENCE NCERT BOOK.
TIPS TO SCORE GOOD MARKS IN THE CLASS 10TH SCIENCE EXAM ARE:
1. FAMILIAR WITH THE SYLLABUS AND TOPICS:
As the syllabus for the science exam is vast as compared to the other subjects. you should make yourself familiar with the syllabus and the topics covered in the syllabus. The syllabus contains the 5 units in which they cover Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Environmental science. segregate the topics into 3 parts: Easy, Moderate and Hard. Start preparing from the easy topics. Segregation of topics makes the preparation easy for the aspirants.
2. MAKE NOTES :
Making notes makes the study easy and flexible. Note making saves time for reading each topic many times. While making notes take the reference from the standard books and the NCERT.

For understanding the topics more clearly, take the reference from the refreshers and journals recommended by the teachers or CBSE. While making notes, make the diagrams, flow charts, graphs to make the understanding better. While preparing the notes of chemistry, write the chemical reactions and equations in front of every chapter. make the notes covering all the syllabus. Highlight the heading, keywords, definitions, equations.
3. Work step by step :
Start the syllabus from easy topics and cover them quickly, after working on the moderate and then hard topics. work more time on moderate and hard topics. While preparing, take the reference from the refreshers to understand the topics easily. make a habit of reading daily because skipping the days makes the difference and creates more burden at the end.

Concentrate more on the topics which have a high weightage in the exams, they are the scoring topics so prepare them perfectly. Practice the questions related to your weak topics from the question banks and the reference books. Also, do the preparation of solving the numerical and chemical equations in a short period of time.
To prepare for the class 10th sciences exams, NCERT sciences books are the best books for preparation. these are the preparation strategies for scoring high marks in science exams in a short period of time
