I have covered a whole lot so far in my academic guide. However, there are many more amazing topics to be dealt with. Right now, I am about to share the importance of using more than one Textbook per subject to study for your examination papers.
Before I proceed, I would love to explicitly state that, “one the reasons why students fail examinations is the nature and quality of books they read”. Books go a long way to determine your academic performance.
Now, have you ever wondered why most examination bodies recommend texts? It is because these recommended books contain the information required in the examination. As such, you would need them to get the required grades.

If you ask me the question, should I use more than one textbook to read for every subject or course? I will boldly say Yes. Without wasting much time, below are the top reasons you should use more than one textbook per subject:
1. Ease Of Understanding:
There is a common saying, “until you marry more than one wife, you can’t tell which is better“. Until you get more than one textbook for a subject, you can’t tell what has been missing. Using more than one textbook aids your understanding of the topic.
Everyone has subject(s)/course(s) giving them issues. However, some textbooks make the subject naturally more difficult. This can be seen in many mathematics, biology, Engineering, and physics textbooks. In this case, using more than one textbook makes the topic or subject simple and easier to understand.
2. Accuracy Factor:
So many textbooks have been proven to have errors. Even from personal experience, I have found errors in many texts. Therefore, it is imperative you study for your examination with more than one textbook so as to identify the mistakes and as well make corrections. Don’t go to the hall with half-baked knowledge…
3. Size Of Textbooks:
Many textbooks are usually bulky. The good news is that you can get a whole lot of information from these books. However, they are not good for revision. It is good you get other textbooks that carry only key points for revision.
From experience, I have noticed that it is easier to recall what you have read when you study with smaller and simple textbooks. You may want to try this out yourself.
4. More Information:
The more books you read for a course or subject, the more information you are exposed to. Content is the key…
Remember, it is what you have in your head that takes you ahead. Your best bet is to acquire information that would boost your score in the exam.
5. Choice Making:
You might have heard one or two persons say, “my best Use of English textbook is DANDY English”. This is because they have tried many English textbooks and have decided to settle for the best. You can’t get the best until you try the rest.
