Important Tips to Cover JEE Advanced Syllabus 2021 / 2022 for Physics
The candidates can check some tips below to cover JEE Advanced syllabus of physics:
A) Chart a plan
We have provided above all the topics and the detailed syllabus for the exam. Now the job of the candidates is to plan a strategy that helps them to cover the syllabus efficiently with time for practice and revision. To do so one can follow the points below:
- In the first few months cover all the important topics and mock test series of those topics.
- Practice questions from all the important topics.
- In the next months cover the rest f the syllabus.
- In the last final months revise and take mock tests and also solve previous year papers.
B) Collect the good books
Toppers suggest H C Verma is the best book for physics preparation. The candidates can check this book out. However, it is the taste of the candidates that matters. Many also refer to Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick & Walker, and many refer to Problems in General Physics by I.E. Irodov. Therefore, the candidates have to make sure that whatever book they choose it is as per the language that they understand and helps them with all-round preparation.
C) Numerical and Theory in Physics
It is a myth that one can solve the numerical without being thorough with the theory first. In JEE Advanced candidates need basics strong and understanding of the theory to apply the concepts in the questions asked. Thus give equal weightage to the theory part of the syllabus too as much as you give to the numerical part.
D) Do not fear Physics being the toughest section
Candidates have an idea right from the beginning that physics is the toughest section and how the syllabus is to be covered. However, if the subject is loved and treated like any other subject the preparation can be smooth. Thus keeping the dreads of the paper aside, try to focus on the topics that you have a strong hols of and the practice more and more for the weaker sections.
