Study Tips for IIT JEE preparation


Study Tips for IIT JEE preparation

1. Concentrate on the basic concepts. Strengthen your fundamentals. Master the basic of each chapter. Do many times so that you know the concept by heart. NCERT books are good for the concept. So first should be to study the NCERT books and familiarize all the concepts. HC verma is also good for concept.

2. Once you are through with the concepts, you need to develop problem solving skills. Pick one good physics and start solving the questions. Initially problems of low level should be tried and only when you have mastered them, you should go on to solving intricate JEE type problems. Always give full attempt the question before seeing the solutions. Try to recall all the formula, concepts and try the solve the problems. Don't take too many Physics books .One or two should be sufficient.

3. JEE paper consists of questions from various units. Some units are easier to solve. So Students should try the following order for mastering the units.

Thermodynamics: It is quite simple to master this topics. JEE paper always have few question from it. So easy to score those.

Hydrostatics and Bernoulli's Principle: This is also simple.
