To prepare for Physics in NEET, candidates must first get hold of good study material. The important topics with maximum number of questions in the last 10 years are Current Electricity (47 questions) followed by Semi-conductors (41 questions). Other important topics include Dual Nature of Matter, Laws of Motion and Rotational Motion.

Candidates can prepare for these topics by solving the NEET mock test papers. Candidates can also refer to a few help books for better preparation since it will acquaint you with a variety of questions that can be asked in the exam. The graph given below shows the total number of physics questions asked in NEET over the last 10 years:
