Books for IIT JEE happen to be a crucial exam prep material for IIT JEE examinees, besides exam papers and coaching institutes. What are the recommended books for IIT JEE exam prep? The focus of this blog post is to answer this question.
Recommended books for IIT JEE Prep:
There are too many books available in the market for IIT JEE exam and therefore the examinees always have problem choosing the best books. My advice for you while searching for IIT JEE books is first do a self-analysis as per following:
First study the NCERT books (Class-XI & XII). This forms the backbone of your study plan, since IIT JEE syllabus follows the CBSE (i.e. NCERT) syllabus. If you are not from CBSE board or do not have these books, do not worry. You can click here to download freely the NCERT CBSE books
. You can save these NCERT PDF books by choosing “Floppy” icon chapter-wise.
After studying these books JEE topic-wise (refer JEE-syllabus
& go topic-wise), go for solving problems from NCERT books, again topic-wise. You have to choose “Exemplar Problems” in the drop box as shown below in the NCERT download link
3.0 Once you start attempting these questions, you would know what is your strength and weak areas. For the weak areas/topics, you would need to consult IIT JEE reference books, to grow/strengthen your concepts.
You can further check your weak/strong areas by attempting the real IIT-JEE exam papers. Do not have these JEE papers? Do not worry, just visit my previous blog post titled: IIT JEE exam papers download
, which gives you the solved JEE exam papers of last 10 years.
It is only after this self-analysis of your strong and weak areas that you can choose the right IIT JEE book.
