Thanks for the useful info about NEET. These preparation tips are enough to crack NEET if they are followed regularly. But one thing that you have missed is that practicing mock test regularly helps in increasing accuracy and somewhat it also boosts our confidence to face the actual exam. So I would like to share one of the best NEET Mock Test Series through which i had been preparing for quite some time. Others can also attempt the NEET Mock Test at . I would love to hear if somebody gets benefitted from the mock test series in their preparations
