Top Books to Prepare for JEE Main

With a major overhaul happening in exam pattern from next year, the National Test Agency has assured that there will be no change in the syllabus for JEE Main. This goes well with every JEE aspirant as they can be at ease of finishing the syllabus on time without worrying about the changes.

Among all the worries bothering the students, ‘which book to study from?’ takes the first place. Students by now are already in the process of preparation and might just need guidance on which books to study from for JEE Main. While a bad book can low down any level of preparation, a good book will not only help in cracking exam but achieve the desired result.

Here, we have provided a list of Top JEE Main books which are highly recommended by subject experts and previous years’ toppers. It is important to note that no single book shall cover all the topics across all three subjects. Engineering aspirants might have to refer more than one book for a subject or a single book for a very important topic. Read on to understand what all books to refer based on the syllabus for JEE Main 2019.

JEE Main Syllabus
Before we delve further, let’s take into consideration the syllabus for each subject thereafter we’ll go through the top books to study. Keep in mind to have a mix of the best book along with NCERT.

JEE Main 2019 – Physics
Physics is a very tricky subject that requires a stronghold over theory and its application. If we look at the pattern of JEE Main Physics paper then 80% of questions in section A covers the theoretical part and the remaining 20% are based on practical knowledge. Let’s take a look at the important topics that your book should ideally cover.

Important Topics For JEE Main Physics    

Oscillation and Waves
Modern Physics
Electromagnetic Induction and AC
Current Electricity
Dual nature of matter and radiation
Communication system

A book should have the right amount of theory with practical problems and solutions as per the syllabus. Don’t miss out on the problems and solutions part as practicing after studying is a prerequisite to cover a topic. Students must also understand that textbooks form the base and the books provided below are to hone your knowledge.
