About the Book

This book provides all the knowledge, practice and coaching that students need to crack the NEET exam. Volume 1 deals with the topics covered in Class 11, comprising the living world; biological classification; the plant and animal kingdoms; morphology and anatomy of flowering plants; structural organisation in animals; cell, cell cycle and cell division; biomolecules; transportation, mineral nutrition, photosynthesis, respiration and growth and development in plants; digestion and absorption; breathing and exchange of gases, body fluids and their circulation; excretory products and their elimination; locomotion and movement; neural control and coordination; and chemical control and integration.

Salient features:

  • Comprehensive compilation of objective questions from previous years’ NEET papers
  • Exercises comprise multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, match the following and diagram-oriented questions
  • Indispensable compendium enables students to prepare with efficiency and accuracy
  • One-stop knowledge and practice treasure-trove for students that will help them to hone their time management skills and create a unique strategic approach for the exam
