Class 8 Maths Class 8 Science
Reference Books for class 8 science

Given below are the links of some of the reference books for class 8 science.

  1. Oswaal NCERT & CBSE Pullout Worksheets Class 8 Science These worksheets can help student evaluate whatever he/she has studied from the text books.
  2. Science for Class 8 Paperback by Lakhmir Singh Detailed science book to clear basics and concepts. I would say it is a must have book for class 8 student.
  3. Pearson Foundation Series (IIT -JEE / NEET) Physics, Chemistry, Maths & Biology for Class 8 (Main Books) | PCMB Combo : These set of books could help your child if he aims to get extra knowledge of science and maths. These would be helpful if child wants to prepare for competitive exams like JEE/NEET. Only buy if you can provide help to the child while studying.
  4. Reasoning Olympiad Workbook - Class 8 :- Reasoning helps sharpen the mind of child. I would recommend students practicing reasoning even though they are not appearing for Olympiad.

You can use above books for extra knowledge and practicing different questions.
