CUET Preparation Books 2023 [Most Recommended]

Author : Palak Khanna

Updated On : January 17, 2023



We can expect the CUET exams to be conducted twice next year!

To make the best of this opportunity, we suggest you quickly gather these CUET Preparation Books 2023 and start your preparations. 

Choosing the right preparation books for the CUET exam is significant for achieving excellent scores. Your preparations narrow down to the following: 

  • Right Preparation Time
  • Right Preparation Strategies
  • Right Preparation Books

But with so many books available online and offline, choosing the right one can be rather confusing. 

Since the exam is relatively new, we suggest you explore many study materials before concluding to study from only one book. You tend to study more from the book you prefer, and everybody's choices are different. Thus, explore! 

You can blindly refer to NCERT books to prepare for section II domain subjects and refer to the CUET preparation books 2023 listed in this article. 

Tips for picking the best CUET Books 2023

  • Pick books published by renowned publications that update the books per the latest exam pattern.
  • Do not hesitate to talk to your teachers, seniors and friends to know the best CUET books to ace your preparations. 
  • Make sure to read the book's reviews before purchasing it. 
  • Get your hands on some online reviews as well. 
  • Pick books that provide practice questions at the end of each chapter.
  • Ed-tech websites provide good study materials, for example, "SuperGrads".
