Method 1:

Reading books subject wise:

  1. Take any subject of class 6 that you would like to start from. For e.g.,- science.
  2. After completing that particular subject, Move to next class i.e., class 7 and continue reading same subject(science).
  3. Similarly, continue doing this by moving to next class and continuing with the same subject that you chose in the starting.
  4. Continue reading the book of the same subject next until you reach to class 12.
  5. Start the above process with another subject in the same way.

Method 2:

Reading books class wise:

  1. Starting with class 6 read all the NCERT books.
  2. Afer completing that move to the next class i.e., class 7 and read all the books of that class
  3. Continue reading the book of preceding class until you reach to class 12.
  4. Start the above process in the same way.

It is up to you which method you choose to prepare for your exam.
But choosing the method one is going to help you a lot as Learning same subject without creating gap will consume less time and will help you to understand and remember the terms you studied more easily.But Sometimes it may happen that, If you study the same book continuously you may get bored and lose your momentum to avoid these take any other subject also and after completing any topic make a note for it.
On other hand learning by the second method will consume more time as it will create a gap between particular subject, leading a confusion.



This question can be solved by making notes.
By writing down the main topic and then writing the sub-topics.Inside the sub-topics write only the important word or sentence related to it(subtopic), that you could remember easily.This will help you to remember the terms quickly when you will go through the whole syllabus.
