NTA UGC NET Mock Test & Books

When we were kids, did we ever think there would be a time when our parents won’t be shouting at us for using our laptop too much instead would be scolding us for not using it enough?

Well, I certainly never thought there would come a time when my mother would voluntarily put the laptop in my hands and ask me to attempt mock tests or quizzes to prepare myself for my exams.

Every student has a unique way of studying, some of us like studying by ourselves and some of us like studying in a proper classroom environment.

If you fall in the latter category, I’m sure you’ve been hit pretty bad by the COVID-19 epidemic.

If you’re an old school like me, you’d know nothing beats pen and paper.

These keyboards will never understand the pure joy of studying from a new book (more like smelling through the pages). 

So to solve both our problems, I’m going to be talking about both online modes for preparing as well books you can get to study for the exam.

However, I would highly recommend you to do both because that would certainly ensure better results.

I’m going to divide the article into two parts:

  1. UGC NET Paper 1 Books
  2. NTA UGC NET Mock Test

UGC NET Paper 1 Books

Finding the right UGC NET books often involves a lot of hit and try, which can honestly be quite tiring.

Being a JRF holder myself, I can understand the plight of researching and reading every article there is to find the UGC NET books that are the best in their game. 

So, it’s safe to say that you can take my word for it. Because just like you’re here desperately trying to find answers to all your questions, I was once in those shoes too. 

Without taking more of your time, let’s get started. I’m going to list some of the best books for UGC NET Paper 1.

There are like thousands of books out there but the ones mentioned in this article are the ones I can personally vouch for. 

Best Books for UGC NET Paper 1

Now there are 3 other UGC NET books that I can vouch for on all levels and not just because I have co-written them but because being a JRF student myself, I made it a point to write a book that I would have wanted while I was preparing for the exams.

Any website that you go through for learning how to prepare for the UGC NET exam will always recommend solving last year’s question papers because it gives your learnings a shape.

You test yourself and understand your weak points as well as strong points.

The first UGC NET Paper 1 book, NTA UGC NET JRF by anujjindal.in has 1500+ paper I questions with all 10 subjects covered. In addition to that, each question is marked on its level of difficulty.

The second UGC NET Paper 2 book, NTA UGC NET Previous Year Papers by anujjindal.in has Paper II question papers in the field of Commerce, Management and HRM. It has question papers from 2019, 2018 and 2017.

The third UGC NET Paper 1 book, NTA UGC NET Previous Year Papers (Paper I) by anujjindal.in has question papers of Paper I exam from the years 2017-2019.

All these UGC NET Books are made to make life simpler for you but remember, in the end, it’s your determination and hard work that can get you through and nothing else. 


Now without mock tests, we would never know where we stand in terms of preparation before the main examination.

And that’s where we enter, we provide you with UGC NET Paper I online mock test in the form of UGC NET Quiz for your exam preparation.

We are aware that the level of questions asked in the UGC NET Examination has increased a lot in the past year examinations and mock tests are designed similarly. 

These are the few things that are guaranteed if you regularly attempt Mock tests (of course without any cheating) :

  1. You will get familiarised with the online exam pattern as UGC conducts its exam online too and this way, you’ll be ready for what’s coming at you. 
  2. Increase your speed

Your hard work is the most essential key in cracking the UGC NET exam and that is one thing that comes to you without any research or without spending any money. Be sure to do your research properly without investing your money anywhere.
