In the Nigerian education system, the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is the examination that marks the end of secondary education. This final examination is organized and administered by the West African Examination Council (WAEC). WAEC is saddled with the responsibility of conducting the same exam in other countries within West Africa.

As a standard examination body testing its candidates on various subjects, WAEC has designed syllabuses for each of the subjects. These syllabuses state the scope of each subject and the learning objectives. Beyond the syllabuses, the council also makes express recommendation of textbooks that they have appraised and found to cover the syllabuses adequately using the best teaching approach. Candidates are encouraged to procure and use these WAEC recommended texts in their preparation for the best results.

Sadly, many candidates who register for the SSCE are not aware that there are such things as WAEC recommended textbooks. So they read any material they can lay their hands on. Little wonder they end up poorly prepared and come out with a result they are not proud of.
