"IITJEE is an exam that is totally based on problem
solving. Whether it is physics or chemistry or mathematics, hardly any
theoretical questions are asked. Mostly it is numerical based questions.
Because of this nature of IITJEE, students preparing for IITJEE exam should
spend most of their time in solving more and more problems.
There are many students who are spending lot of time on problem solving but
even though they are not able to score in exam. This is because they don’t
remember ideas/tricks of many questions in exam which they should have solved.
This happens because while doing problem solving, they learn things but they
do nothing to retain them in their memory i.e. they solve problems but don’t
revise them. To repeat, they need to retain. To retain, they should
learn/memorize the ideas/tricks of the questions, To learn/memorize, they need
to put efforts and time as well as they should follow the correct approach.
To retain and repeat, I recommend a “Four Phases Approach (FPA)”
to you for doing problem solving. This is little difficult to follow as it
requires you to be little systematic in your studies which most students
found difficult to be. But once “Four Phases Approach” followed
properly, it will definitely help you in many dimensions like improving your
speed, accuracy, problem solving ability and confidence in the topic.[..]
