Without wasting any time, I will quickly show you the list of best Physics textbooks to read and pass JAMB 2021/2022.


Like I mentioned earlier, JAMB recommended textbooks for Physics are the best textbooks to prepare for JAMB(see reasons in the next heading below).

Below are the list of JAMB recommended textbooks for Physics 2021/2022:

  • Ike E.E (2014) Essential Principles of Physics, Jos ENIC publishers
  • Ike E.E (2014) Numerical Problems and Solutions in Physics, Jos ENIC publishers
  • Nelson M. (1977) Fundamentals of Physics, Great Britain, Hart Davis Education
  • Nelson M. and Parker. (1989) Advance Level Physics, (Sixth Edition) Heinemann
  • Okeke P.N and Anyakoha M.W. (2000) Senior Secondary School Physics, Lagos, Pacific Printers
  • Olumuyionwa A. and Ogunkoya O. O (1992) Comprehensive Certificate Physics, Ibadan: University Press Plc.

PERSONALLY, I believe any of the above textbooks is good. However, I will recommend New school physics + Lamlard OR Senior Secondary school + Lamlard.

While New school/Senior secondary physics will give you the best explanation in the easiest way, Lamlard will show you how to solve questions.

Advance Level and Principle of Physics by Nelkon M & Parker are also good except that you may not find them useful if your basic knowledge of Physics is not very strong.

I have used all these textbooks so I will recommend New school physics/Senior secondary school + Lamlard.
