 Hello friends, welcome to the Schoolsmint education blog today I will show you the JAMB Recommended Textbooks (Materials) for UTME Candiadates.

Many candidate fail every year not because they didn’t know it but they used to read what is not recommended by jamb some will even go out of syllabus I’ve one name for those people toxic movers and what they read is toxic to their basic knowledge they didn’t need it at that level.Some even  go ahead and buy series of a-level text book and forget to read the basic stuff.I’m once a victim of this there was a year i read all those toxic stuff i didn’t need do you know what i got? I got 236 and the following year i didn’t have much time to prepare i just read all those o-level books and i got 277.
I look out one day i discovered that many people like me are outside suffering because they didn’t have the right material that is why i decided to help others out there who are a victim also .
