TRUTH: Recently, Jamb started recommending compulsory novels for the use of English. Also, they give literature students list of novels to read. It is imperative you go through the compulsory novels.
Jamb also gives list of books to read for other subjects. Now, it is not compulsory you get them. There are better textbooks better than the ones recommended by Jamb.
In conclusion, apart from the compulsory novels, you do not need to read other Jamb recommended books to pass. In fact, I can’t remember using any of their recommended texts during my Jamb days.
