In case the author is joining any school/college for continuing studies in 11th standard, then her main focus should be on the textbooks prescribed by the respective board and what recommended by the teachers. In absence of full details regarding the course she intends to pursue as summer course it is difficult to offer any specific opinion. Joining tuition classes are optional only. Many students opt for self study only under the guidance of their regular teachers of the school/college concerned. She may borrow the study material from any of her friends who has joined the course or from senior students who have completed the course during previous years.

The best way of getting the study material in class 11 science I collecting it from any of your seniors. The seniors usually don't need the books and are ready to give it to juniors at a very low price. Since the syllabus of science course in class 11 and 12 is hardly changed only the question pattern gets changed. No one faces any difficulty with older books. You can also go to any of the book markets in your city. Plenty of second hand books are available at a very cheap price. You just need to take recommendation from teachers or take any popular book, because more or less all are same. Buying new books in class11 and 12 is a complete waste of money. You can also follow Khan academy or any such website. They provide free study material to the students

You are finished your 10th standard and want to use your valuable time again for studying. It's good. Here, you didn't mentioned the syllabus (I mean state or central). You want to study science but which science (mathematical or biological)?

It's always better us to follow text books to get an basic idea but one of the main drawback to follow textbooks in our studies is: we may not get good marks. Because it has lengthy syllabus and to understand the concepts it takes lot of time and the questions given in the examinations will be different. To overcome this, what you have to do is: follow textbooks and take previous year question papers and observe how the questions are asking in the examination and pattern.

Second best thing is: Follow your senior (notes).
Third option is: Internet. You can download the videos related to your subject and listen the classes regularly.
Next option is: tuitions.

There used to be a time when people don't used to have any form of class or tuition system. During that time people used to learn from asking questions. You just have to ask the questions to teachers and the people who know about the concept.

You have to follow this pattern. First try to learn things on your own. And if that doesn't help then start with the simple concept and then ask the questions where you don't understand. That way you build concepts in more broader way. This is how many people learn things without class and tution. Most of the time this also work for the people to completely get holistic view of the concept.

So you should focus on group study and asking questions. This is the best way to learn things on your own. Also make use of youtube and similar other type of learning online to know how it works.

Dear Bhagyashree,

If you have internet access then you can get a lot of extra study material online for free. If your main aim is to get better understanding of certain topics, then there is no dearth of good study material online. There are some websites like Khan's Academy that provide free study material for all subjects and all classes including video tutorials and short quizzes in the end. You can even check out youtube for tutorials of most science subjects. All in all they will really help you in gaining better understanding of topics which one can't always gain from reading the prescribed text books.

If you want to practice questions, then you can even find previous years papers available for free online. During my school days I found solving previous years papers extremely helpful in getting a feel of the exam and preparing oneself for what to expect in a paper.

Internet is a wonderful tool, make the most of it.

If you want to get the best study materials or the text books from your seniors at the low price or half rate as per market rate. The seniors usually give their books to the juniors. And one more thing you can also take the previous year Question papers also from them. That question paper would help you to know the pattern of the Exam.
