What is the Best Maths Textbook for Preparing for JAMB?

So many websites will show you different textbooks as the best. You might have come across these textbooks but the one I’m about to recommend for you is out of experience. I have used these textbooks and I have also seen that they are rich indeed.

Hidden Facts in Mathematics / Further Maths

Hidden Facts in Mathematics

This is one of the best textbooks out there because it explains every mathematical steps and covers some topics which other topics are not able to cover.

All the topics in JAMB syllabus for mathematics are covered in both Hidden Facts in Mathematics and Further Mathematics textbooks. If you cannot afford both textbooks, then you can just purchase one.

These textbooks are best when preparing for NECO SSCE, WAEC SSCE, NECO GCE, WAEC GCE, NABETEB or even JAMB. The textbook is sold for about 6,000 Naira.

DISCLAIMER: Remember, the recommended textbooks for Maths as listed above are still among of the best and essential as regards this year’s UTME. The textbook I shared above is out of experience and the one that worked for me.
