JEE Preparation Books – A list of all important reference books for JEE Mains and IIT JEE Advanced

JEE Preparation Books For Reference - for Mains and IIT JEE AdvancedReferring the right book for JEE Preparation is as important as putting in the right amount of time for studies. Though the theories, formulae, and basic matter remain the same in each book, there are certain things that set apart one book from the rest. When it comes to a competitive exam such as JEE (JEE Main and IIT JEE Advanced), logic, practice and command in each topic is of utmost importance. You, the student who is preparing, must ensure that the time spent on a book is worth it.

Given here is a list of books which teachers, professors and academicians have vouched for over the years. Given subject wise, the list is concise and comprehensive.

Book Reviews of Important Books for JEE Main and IIT JEE Advanced

Book reviews to let you know why you should refer to these books to prepare for JEE Main and IIT JEE Advanced, are given below.

Concepts of Physics (Volume 1) by HC Verma

Concepts of Physics by H. C. Verma is a book that has a lot of text explaining all that has to be learnt in 10+2 Physics in a clear way starting from the scratch. It is highly recommended by teachers all over the country for almost all engineering entrance exams, especially for JEE. The book helps master conceptual strengths and provides an easy way of learning the concepts involved in the subject. The ease of learning physics with this book comes from its organization and simplicity. The questions, examples and practice problems range from easy, medium to hard. It is not said without reason, that the student who has aced this book has indeed high chances of scoring 100% in Physics in any entrance exam.

Problems in General Physics by I.E. Irodov

The book is applauded for its range of questions in Physics. Not only do you build up a clear understanding of Physics using this book, you also master problem solving.

Solutions To Irodov’s Problems In General Physics

The JEE syllabus has evolved over the years, and maybe you will find the questions in IE Irodov’s book a little tougher than expected. So as not to waste time and understand the solutions, it is advisable to have the solutions handy. Specifically questions on Modern Physics can be practiced from  Irodov.

Fundamentals of Physics: by David Halliday, Robert Resnick, and Jearl Walker

This is for the absolute pros only. You should study Heat and Waves, Electricity and Magnetism from Resnick Halliday. Please remember, that though the book is wonderful and incomparable, but you must only pick it up after you have studied from at least your NCERT text books. The theory given in the book is more elaborate. You can specifically read chapters from it that you have difficulty in understanding otherwise. The questions are of moderate to difficult level. If you have bought the book, you may ask a teacher to specifically mark questions that you should do.

Organic Chemistry by Robert Morrison and Boyd

This book is the ultimate learning source for Organic Chemistry. Co written by Robert Thornton Morrison, Robert Neilson Boyd, , the topics related to Organic Chemistry have been well elaborated, exemplified. Though it is published in many versions and editions by various publishers, we would suggest you to go for the Indian adaptation. This version has trimmed off the topics which are not relevant to your entrance exams.

Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J.D. Lee

The book is divided into six parts covering topics of Inorganic Chemistry-

  • theoretical concepts and hydrogen,
  • the s-block,
  • the p-block,
  • the d-block,
  • the f-block
  • other topics (the nucleus and spectra).

It focuses on the commercial exploitation of inorganic chemicals and the treatment of the inorganic aspects of environmental chemistry. You can master the Inorganic Chemistry section from this book.

Modern Approach to Chemical Calculations by RC Mukherjee

This book is for those who want to develop their skill in numerical problems of chemistry. Questions based on the following are introduced

  • Mole and The Mole Concept
  • Stoichiometry and Equations based problems in chemistry
  • Eudiometry and Gas Analysis
  • Atomic Weight
  • Molecular Weight
  • Chemical Equivalence
  • Volumetric Calculations
  • Electrolysis and Electrolytic Conductance
  • Estimation of Elements in Organic Compounds
  • Empirical, Molecular and Structural Formulae
  • Atomic Structure and Radioactivity
  • Properties of Gases
  • Dilute Solution and Colligative Properties
  • Chemical Thermodynamics
  • Chemical Equilibrium
  • Ionic Equilibrium in Aqueous Solutions
  • Chemical Kinetics
  • Electromotive Force
  • Oxidation Number and Balancing of Redox Reactions
  • Solid and Liquid States

36 Years IIT-JEE Advanced + 12 Years JEE Main Topic-Wise Solved Paper (Chemistry)

The book, as the title suggests, has previous year solved papers of chemistry. As the questions are divided subject wise, you can use this book to practice problems alongside your preparation, right from day 1. The problem that most students face while solving mock tests of other books is that they have to solve the papers after completing whole syllabus. But with this book, you can solve chapter wise questions and stay ahead of others.

Problems in Calculus of One Variable by I.A. Maron

Calculus is one of the toughest topics in entrance exams mathematics. Solving the problems in IA Maron, you can master the subject. Be patient and solve the questions in this book.

Calculus and Analytic Geometry by Thomas Finney

The book covers topics of The Rate of Change of a Function , Derivatives , Applications of Derivatives , Integration , Applications of Definite Integrals , Transcendental Functions , Integration Methods , Plane Analytic Geometry , Hyperbolic Functions , Polar Coordinates , Sequences and Infinite Series , Power Series , Vectors , Vector Functions and their Derivatives , Partial Derivatives , Multiple Integrals , Vector Analysis , Differential Equations .

Higher Algebra by Hall and Knight

Hall and Knight’s book of Mathematics covers topic on Algebra, their concepts and problems. A must have for students looking to excel in Algebra for entrance exams.
