Most Recommended Books by Teachers for Class 10 & 12 CBSE Term 2 Subjective Board Exams
To help students navigate through the deluge of books in the market, we did a pan-India survey to gather feedback via:
- Online polls from more than 20,000 students
- Quora platform surveys
- Amazon and Flipkart rankings
- YouTube polls
- Selected 1000+ teachers from Top CBSE Schools of India
Based on the above sources, we have identified top books for three categories:
- Subject-wise preparation
- Paper-wise preparation
- Reference Books
Here are the top picks with relevant reasons:

More than 2000 students that we surveyed on online platforms picked Educart sample papers as their favourite for Term 2 because of their quality of questions and detailed solutions to clear the basics.
- Term 2 Reference Book – R.D. SHARMA
R.D. Sharma has been one of the best reference books for CBSE students. If practice questions for Mathematics are needed then students turn to their Class 12 R.D. Sharma books; these books have never disappointed. With over 100+ solved examples, these books clarify the concept in a step-by-step way. We would recommend these books not only for NCERT practice but also for competitive exam practice.
- Term 2 QUESTION BANKS – Educart
A lot of teachers, in CBSE Class 10, felt technical subjects like Science and Maths require a wide variety of new typology questions that cover each topic well. Almost 70% of people that we surveyed felt that Educart Question Banks provided the most number of questions of high quality amongst all publishers. In CBSE Class 12, especially with subjects like English Core, the new pattern inference questions are also available in Educart as per the CBSE sample paper.
