Standard IX is the class that decides the preparedness of the student to face the next board class. All basic concepts of each subject have to be fully clear and understood by the student here, as only then can he find studying easier in all his future course of learning. Hence, Class IX is crucial for the all round cognitive and intellectual development of the student.
The CBSE syllabus for Class IX should be presented to the students before the start of the school as it gives them an idea about the contents of their learning course for the following year.

It is possible to study from the CBSE books online and obtain certain advantages. Main benefit is that the costs of buying physical books can be avoided as the download is free of charge. The student can easily switch from one part of information to the other without turning pages or using several textbooks at a time. Class IX books are very bulky and if you study online the handling of books is avoided.
