Books to refer for ARS - NET Exam (Syllabus wise)

Hi ICAR -ARS-NET aspirants,
Indian council of Agriculture Research (ICAR) is the largest scientific organisation in India with most number of research institutes. ARS NET exam is the only life science exam in India that allows you to become a Scientist in ICAR institutes all over India with just the qualification of M.Sc in the concerned subject. That itself tells the importance of this exam. The exam is conducted by Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR and Agricultural Scientist Recruitment Board (ASRB) wing for filling direct scientist vacancies in ICAR institutes across India. 
Why you should take this exam seriously?
In comparison with UGC CSIR NET this exam is relatively simple. For UGC NET, Whatever be the specialization you have in your post graduation (may be botany, Zoology, Biotechnology, Microbiology) it doesn't matter you will be considered as a life science student irrespective of your specialization. In other words, a botany student has to study biotechnology, zoology, immunology, microbiology everything that come under UGC NET syllabus.
But in ICAR NET, you have questions from only your stream. Exam is conducted under different categories. Separate questions for each stream. So for qualifying this exam you should be a master in your stream not in all the other streams of life sciences.
This time you can apply for  both ARS and NET separately.  And you have 150 objective type questions. Questions are very easy compared to UGC-NET
  The real advantage is this ARS NET is equivalent to UGC NET. On qualifying this exam you are eligible for assistant professor post anywhere in India.
So Don’t miss this chance.
You can expect a number of questions from topics related to agriculture.
Here we are providing study materials for ICAR NET exam preparation.
