NCERT textbooks can prove to be beneficial for the UET exam. The major concepts which are asked in the exam can be covered through it. However,  for the exam practice,  various sample papers can help in building strategies for the exam. More and more questions help in thinking about the concepts and applying them with speed and accuracy. Building up accuracy will surely fetch a perfect score.

All the best!!!
