Is it possible to prepare for NDA NA entrance without JEE preparation ? and can you please share the exact way to prepare for the exam as im presently preparing for my boards and exam is conducted in the month of April..
Yes, it is possible that you can prepare for NDA exam, without doing the preparation of JEE exam. You can crack the NDA exam easily, if you have full determination and do hard work. There are two portions in this exam. One is Maths portion and the another one is General Ability portion . So, I am listing some best and easy books to prepare for each part separately.
- RD Sharma Mathematics
- Mathematics by Cengage
General knowledge :
- Lucent's GK
Physics and Chemistry generally come upto 10th class, so read NCERT for these subjects.
And also for the subjects like History, Politics, Geography, just read the NCERT books thoroughlly of 8,9,10 th class.
The best way to prepare for this exam is solving the previous year papers of NDA. These will be very helpful. Also, some questions gets repeated from the previous ones. So, solve as much previous year papers as you can.
Hope this helps.

If you are preparing for JEE then preparing for your CBSE board examination becomes a little bit easier because Jee syllabus goes well along with CBSE syllabus the only difference is that your Jee examination will be objective while your CBSE board examination is going to be subjective but yes you will have to manage time because for JEE preparation you'll have to practice objective questions while for CBSE Board Examination you'll have to practice derivations etc.
To score 90% or more you need to prepare well for your board examination which you can do following the below tips :-
*First of all go through NCERT and don't ignore it at all most of the questions in board examination are based on NCERT, you can take the help of reference books to understand the difficult topics and have better understanding but major focus should be on NCERT
*make a routine and religiously follow it, it will help you to avoid wastage of time and study in a systematic manner
*For mathematics, practice is the key , the more you practice the more you get good at maths. Focus more on miscellaneous exercises of NCERT Maths , go through all the examples as well.
*For chemistry go through all the solved examples and intext and exercise questions of NCERT , in organic chemistry focus more on name reactions there are two questions from name reaction each year in board examination and many questions are based on them directly
*For physics, practice all the derivations from time to time as there are chances of forgetting them if you don't revise them, derivations are very often asked in your board exam, go through solved examples and then go for unsolved numericals.
*Make short notes of important concepts and formulas for each chapter
*Go through previous 10 year board examination question papers as concepts are often repeated in board exam so it will be of great help in your preparation
*Once you are done with your complete board examination syllabus go through at least 3-5 mock test papers in each subject
