Here  is a List of KCSE New Approved Set books for secondary schools in Kenya 2018-2022.

The Ministry of Education has approved literature books to be used in secondary schools between 2018 and 2022.
In a directive to school heads across the country, Pius Mutisya, the director for Quality Assurance said the new books will replace those that have been in use since 2013.
“The books for the period 2018-2023 have a running footnote on every page stating “Approved by KICD 2017 Edition” and “Kimeidhiniwa na KICD Tolep 2017” for English and Kiswahili respectively,” he said.
According to the ministry, the books have a security tag on the cover which when scratched will reveal a 16 digit pin number to ensure that only genuine books are bought.
