The preparation for a competitive exam like IIT-JEE 2019 examination can be quite daunting and competitive. More than thousands of students appear for the recently updated 11279 seats available in 23 functioning IITs in India. The exam can be a rigorous process because of the number of options available for approaching these exams. Tons of books, tons of reading material both online and offline, ever-growing coaching institutes, private tutors, can be more confusing than making your life easy.
The subject that requires some extra efforts and focuses out of three (Physics, Chemistry, and Maths) is “Physics”. It is the most challenging subject to prepare during the JEE Mains and JEE Advanced preparation.
Physics is a subject that requires a logical approach and in-depth thorough understanding of the concepts. And later, how you apply these concepts in problem-solving queries. Apart from groundbreaking fact to build rock-solid concepts in Physics, your success also depends on the books you choose for IIT-JEE preparation. This step can be confusing, intimidating and could result in a failure if you let numerous course books and coaching gurus overboard you.
What Is The Right Method Then?
Reading material can be a necessity when it comes to problem-solving. But first and foremost is getting the concepts clear as much as you could probably explain to someone who does not understand Physics. For that, what is inevitable is a good book that tackles concept clearance.
Widely accepted and recommended books that most coaching institutes and toppers recommend for Physics JEE Mains preparation and JEE Advanced preparation are –
- The most important book while preparing for the IIT-JEE 2019 examination is H C Verma for theory and concepts.
- Once you get a hold of the concepts, the next is problem-solving. For this, you can opt for DC Pandey and Bansal Sheets as recommended by IIT JEE Toppers of 2017 and 2018.
- The above-mentioned books cannot be missed for both JEE Mains and Advanced preparation. However, it will be a bold step to totally skip the NCERT books. It has been often found that direct sentences have been taken from NCERT books as questions especially in the case of Physics and Chemistry. A lot of points in fluid dynamics and the ones in blue boxes which candidates often skip are actually very important and should not be left at all while preparing.
- Though these should be more than enough for understanding the concepts and problem-solving, many also recommend the book ‘Physics by Halliday Resnick Krane’ for theory. You can keep it handy, but the books mentioned before are more than enough to get you cracking the exam like a pro.
Preparation Tips for IIT-JEE Exam
Number Of Hours For Study
This is a tough nut to crack as it varies from person to person. Every student has different capacity and interests. However, what matters is fixing your time to study and stick to it with dedication.
Preparation And Revision
Both preparation and revision are important. Most candidates start preparing from class 11th and 12th for the IIT-JEE examination. These crucial 24 months can be a deciding factor for cracking this toughest exam. While we recommend keeping the preparation and revision time 50-50, but if you do not stick to it exactly, then you should try to give your maximum to all the subjects.
Most IIT candidates who’ve cracked and topped the exams, by far have widely suggested the method of making notes while understanding the concepts. Once, you are done with the note making for every chapter, then you can use these notes during your exam time as you don’t need to read the entire chapter. Just go through the notes you are done. Making good notes with diagrams wherever required is the bible that is going to serve during revisions.
Cracking The Exam
This holds the topmost priority out of the lot. When sitting for the exams, what is widely practiced and preached for IIT-JEE 2019 examination is to remember to attempt questions which you find easy and get them right. Once that is done, move on to the moderately difficult and finally the most difficult. Your aim should be to get 80-90% of the paper correct, though it could be tough. On average, 50-70% correct answers are enough to let you secure a spot at the top IIT institutions of the country.
