For IIT aspirants, the JEE physics section is considered to be a highly scoring and a competitive one. There are several tips you can keep in mind if you want some help while preparing for the physics section of the IIT JEE 2014 exam.
• Very importantly, as an IIT aspirant, you should remember that the right attitude and effort is paramount to your academic success, especially in a prestigious institution like the IIT. If you are not following a right preparation mode for your IIT-JEE and preparing in the right spirit, it is meaningless to dream of a decent result in the test.
• First and foremost, it is essential that you read the best and good books that clearly explain the basic and fundamental concepts of each topic in depth. The books that you read should motivate you to find out more or inquire about whichever topic or concept you are studying. University Physics by Zemansky, Sears or Freedman & Young is indeed the best book you can read for a rigorous and comprehensive first reading for JEE physics. Also, the XII AND XI CBSE books that the NCERT publishes should also be thoroughly read. The Problem book written by Irodov is undoubtedly the best book for JEE physics that you can read. Another great book to read is the "3000 solved problems in Physics" from the Schuam series is a must-read one. Many past IIT students recommend this book for JEE aspirants. If you are very ambitious about cracking the JEE, then you can also read the theory books authored by Irodov- Basic Laws of Electromagnetism and Fundamental laws of Mechanics.
• For additional problems, you can look up to past IIT JEE papers as well as refer to the Physics textbook written by HC Verma. However, you should be reading HC Verma’s theory book only after you have read University Physics.
• When you are studying physics for JEE, it requires high concentration levels to grasp the various concepts in their entirety. Hence, a peaceful and calm study environment should be created at home. Preferably, you should have a separate room to study and ensure your study table remains tidy and neat. It is certainly not a good idea to study lying down on the sofa or the bed. Even when sitting at the study table, you should be completely alert and maintain a correct spine and neck position. This ensures your nervous system efficiently functions and you are able to fully concentrate on the topic or the concept that you are studying.
