As far as JEE and other engineering entrance exams are concerned, NCERT is quite necessary but not sufficient enough to go with. Through this article, we would offer subject-wise JEE preparation tips which would make it easy for you to crack the entrance exam. To start off with your study, here is a list of books which are quite resourceful.
Here, we aim at offering you tips on subject-wise JEE preparation.
Books for Theory
1) Fundamentals of Physics by Resnick and Halliday
2) Problems in General Physics by I.E. Irodov
3) Concepts of Physics by HC Verma (Both volumes)
Physics for Scientists and Engineers by Jewett and Serway
1) Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd
2) Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J.D. Lee
3) Modern approach to Chemical Calculations by R.C. Mukherjee
University Chemistry by Bruce M. Mahan and Rollie J. Meyer’s
1) Trigonometry by S.L. Loney
2) Coordinate Geometry by S.L. Loney
3) Higher Algebra by Hall and Knight
4) Problems in calculus of one variable by I.A. Maron
Books for Practice
1) 38 years of IIT JEE by Arihant Publications in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics
2) New Pattern Arihant in Physics. You can find similar books for Mathematics and Chemistry.
Subject-Wise JEE Preparation Strategy
You need to plan out your time wisely. Optimize and filter out the time available to you after you are done with school, coaching center, homework, daily chores, studying and make a time table. Try to utilize the remaining time fruitfully. Also, keep in mind that it is alright to make mistakes while practicing. It is okay when you practice that you realize your strengths and weaknesses and the possible scenario wherein you might commit mistakes and comprehend your dynamics.
There are approximately 90 odd chapters you need to master in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics all put together. You can find the weightage of each chapter from previous year’s trend. If you don’t have enough time to learn all chapters, make sure to prepare a few chapters. So basically whatever you study, do it thoroughly.
Here are some tips that you should follow in order to master each chapter in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics:
1.Understand the Concepts thoroughly
Select a particular chapter and read the theory from the books suggested above. Thoroughly understand the concepts. Then immediately solve problems corresponding to the chapters that you have studied. Leaving a long gap between theory and practicing might lead to forgetting the crucial concepts and would require a revision. These problems would enhance your theoretical perspective and understanding. From the perspective of JEE, you need to improve your problem solving skills and speed. In order to acquire the skill set, you need to solve a lot of problems. Do a self test check as this will help you to figure out where you have gone wrong and try to solve these problems again. This will help you to know your strengths and you would not repeat the same mistakes again.
2. Prepare a summary Sheet
Usually each subject carries 120 marks be it JEE Mains or JEE Advanced. Once you have solved all the problems, make a summary sheet for the course. It should include all the important formulas, theorems and important problems that you come across. Include all the problems that you might have faced. Since it like a summary, every content that you include should be as concise as possible as in the future whenever you want to revise a particular chapter before the exam you can have a look at the summary sheet. You should recall everything simply by looking at the summary sheet.
3. Need to Engage in Physical Activities
In addition, it is also recommended that you spare about 30-60 minutes every day to engage in any kind of physical activity like sports or yoga to monitor your mental stability and handle all the pressure.
Also, have an idea about the tie-breaking scheme. For instance, if two students get the same score, then the student with higher marks in mathematics will have a better rank. If both have the same score in Maths, then the student with a better marks in Physics will be on the top. So, the order of priority will be Maths>Physics>Chemistry.
To sum it up!
But, before deciding on anything have complete knowledge about the JEE Ranking scheme as proper understanding will help you to prepare and plan out things accordingly.
We hope the article offers effective subject-wise JEE Preparation tips. Aakash wishes that you find the right direction without which none of the subject wise preparation JEE Preparations will be of any use.
