JAMB Recommended Textbooks for Science Students 2022

Studying with the JAMB recommended textbook is the open secret to scoring high on your JAMB. These textbooks are the best materials to aid your UTME examination preparation.

Students make the mistake of using textbooks that are not JAMB recommended. This approach may not help you to pass your examination.

JAMB questions are set from the JAMB syllabus and recommended textbook. It is why you must use these resources to guide you as you study.

Note that it is not compulsory to get all the recommended textbooks. You can prepare for your JAMB examination with one textbook for every subject.

In this post, I have listed out all the JAMB recommended textbooks for Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Mathematics and other science subjects.

Let me know if you need any assistance with your JAMB examination.
