This list is prepared on the basis of students’ choice for books in the semester and teachers’ recommendations for those books.

If you think any particular book’s name should be added to any subject, please write in the comment box and also give your review on the books.

How to choose best among best?

We provided a maximum of 4 books name for a subject but if you still aren’t able to decide which book you should read then do one thing,

Take an overview of available suggested books and then decide, but if you still struggling to find a good book, then we suggest you to read the first lesson of the books or any lesson which your teacher taught you recently, and try to find which book explaining the law to you in a very good way.

sometimes, students face the problem when there is no book that has sufficient materials for the semester exam then you should read that subject with two books.
