The NCERT material is very important, and every concept in it should be understood clearly. Still, there are several benefits of reading reference books other than NCERT books:
Conceptual understanding can be done by reading the NCERT books, but to go beyond that and also get the theoretical explanation, practicing from books solely dedicated to AIIMS is a good choice.
Not every question in the examination paper is based on NCERT Concept, especially in AIIMS, sometimes the questions are out of the box, and to answer all those 200 questions correctly, you need the help of other study materials like Reference Books, Sample Papers, Previous Year's Papers, etc.
The paper consists of MCQs and also reason-based questions. To master the art of answering both, NCERT is not sufficient, and rigorous MCQ solving is needed.
The reference books also help you understand the syllabus, exam pattern, weightage, marking scheme, and level of difficulty better than the NCERT Books solely.

Some ways to strengthen the basics are:
Write down what you understood and create revision notes for your aid, especially in Biology.
Divide bigger and complex topics into smaller parts for easier understanding.
Take your time with a concept instead of rushing into finishing it.
Be clear with the fundamental concepts in chemistry.
Try as much as you can to understand a concept through visual learning, as you can explain that concept in your own words if you know how it works.
Grasping the basic concepts through practical examples is very useful.
4. How many times should you revise the syllabus before the examination?
Revision is an essential aspect of AIIMS, so one should do it as many times as possible. It does not matter how many times you revise the syllabus. What matters is you revise the entire syllabus from start to end to freshen up all the concepts of the whole syllabus in a short flash. Each revision should be complete without missing or skipping any topic. Instead of receiving the syllabus repeatedly, again and again, sit down, relax, and precise the complete syllabus in one go.
5. How to avoid negative marking in AIIMS Examination?
A few ways of not getting any negative marking are:
Don't get restless and go fast due to the thought that the time is extremely less.
Do not darken multiple answers for the same question, thinking it will work.
Make sure you read the questions and the answers thoroughly before filling up the correct answer.
Section-Wise answering is an excellent way of preventing negative marking as the same section keeps the candidate focused on the concepts from that part Of the syllabus, which might not happen later.
Negative marking results from becoming restless, nervously super fast, or not taking sufficient time to understand a question.
