I am not too sure about class VIII but for class IX and X, here are the books which I used:

Physics, chemistry and Biology : S.Chand publications written by Lakhmir Singh and Manjit Kaur....great books for understanding concepts and HOTS questions.

Maths: RS Aggarwal and RD Sharma...RD Sharma is really good for higher level stuff Krishna Ramesh · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Krishna Ramesh Totally agree with this. But you might want to note that this only applies for CBSE board. These books (probably) won't help with other boards or for the RMO/INMO. Siddhartha Srivastava · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Siddhartha Srivastava Yes you're correct sir. Have You cracked the rmo/inmo? If yes, how? Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Krishna Ar Nope. Not that good at Maths. Hopefully I'll qualify next year. Siddhartha Srivastava · 2 years, 8 months ago

For olympiad, a good book is Problem Primer collecting many problems.

Ebook : http://ebookee.org/Problem-Primer-for-the-Olympiad-2nd-Edition_892129.html Megh Parikh · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Megh Parikh Hello, could you tell me how you cracked RMO/INMO? Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar I didnot crack INMO. but I appeared for RMO from 8th std and I practised past papers very much. That helped me know several technicques which I had not previously learnt. Also many times they dont give all good solutions to problems so thinking other possible solutions is also helpful Megh Parikh · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Anik Mandal Do you attend some coaching? Try the books of the AMTI or at least look up their annual competitions problem sets. If you don't find them, ask me, I have the paper of class-8 still with me :D Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Anik Mandal I can mail you the question paper (S) I have of the previous years; first and second levels. They are highly challenging ( I'm dumb :P) and highly interesting too Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Krishna Ar @Krishna Ar , please please email me the papers to satvikgolechha@yahoo.in or sgsuper@yahoo.com. I've been looking for them for so many years, but I didn't find them. Thanks in advance.... Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Satvik Golechha We shall be friends. Are you on any social networking site? Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Krishna Ar @Krishna Ar , Yes, I am on Facebook, but I haven't used it since ages........it seems a waste of time to me. Pls send the papers at sgsuper@yahoo.com.......

In return, I can give you a collection of 100 Brilliant level#4 Algebra problems.......had a tough time gathering them. Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 8 months ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Golechha I'm sorry, but I really know to solve level 4 and 5 problems of only number theory.... algebra is a bit tough to do. Could you tell me how you're so good at math? ( I've asked you this enough number of times) Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar And I've told you enough number of times that you're better than me in maths. I'm waiting for the papers.....please. Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 8 months ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Golechha Sorry,unless and until you tell me how you are so good at maths, I wont send the paper (S) ;) :P...... your levels are also a proof for that :) Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar Okay, so listen ( I mean read, of course )

I try to first understand the way a problem is solved, and then I solve all the problems which have similar logic. And about the levels, let me tell you the truth......Once my elder brother ( who is in IIT now) visited my house and solved a lot of level 4 and 5 problems. So, I reached level 4 in all math topics. Since then, I've tried my best to keep my level up.

Now, I beg you to please send me the papers. Please......... Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 8 months ago

@Satvik Golechha Sure I will.... :D Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago
