Books are numbered in the order of their importance. Also, the links to buy these are provided alongside. Though these books are enough to learn the concepts and practice, there is a plethora of other study material as well. But our advice would be to go to that only after going through these books.
For Mathematics, the NCERT textbooks are sufficient for the concepts. R. D. Sharma and TMH books could be used for practice. The rest of the books can be used as a reference as and when needed.
Make a habit of spending some time learning new concepts and dedicate equal time to solving problems too on a daily basis. Stick to this routine and be disciplined in following it. Nothing can stop you from achieving what you dream about.
