Now one thing that all JEE aspirants must keep in mind is that NCERT books should be studied first. Only then should you move on to other JEE reference books. Apart from studying the theory from NCERT Books you must also solve all questions of each chapter. Class 11 and 12 NCERT Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics books are essential for starting your JEE Preparation.

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is now a two stage exam. The first stage is JEE Main. This is similar to AIEEE and is conducted to by CBSE. The candidates who qualify this exam, clear a specific cut off as laid down by IITs , and are in the top 20 percentile of their boards are eligible to be ranked for JEE Advanced. The JEE Advanced exam is along the lines of IIT JEE and is conducted by IITs.

The list below contain books apart from NCERT.

Given here is a list of Best Books for IIT JEE Preparation.
