USP: Recommended for both JEE Mains and Advanced, Fundamentals through Topic based numericals

  • Very detailed general Physics textbook which is holy grail for all JEE aspirants
  • Students should solve questions at the end of each chapter, starting from easy to advanced
  • Numericals are designed to aid concept building

Suggested topics: Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Electrostatics, Optics, Modern Physics

Limitation: Theory not well-explained, Questions/problems oriented book


2. FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSICS, BY RESNICK, HALLIDAY AND WALKER

USP: Recommended for concept-clearing, especially tough topics like rotational motion

  • One of the best books to strengthen theory and concepts
  • Each concept is explained using descriptions, lab experiments, derivations with lots of application-based examples

Suggested topics: Rotational motion, Wave Optics, Electromagnetism

Limitation: Theory part of Wave Motion on a string, Sound Waves and Circular Motion are not covered well


3. PROBLEMS IN GENERAL PHYSICS BY IE IRODOV

USP: Recommended for JEE Advanced, Advanced-level questions and numericals

  • This book contains 300 advanced-level questions on general physics
  • A very strong foundation in General physics is necessary to attempt Irodov.
  • Soft copy is available on the internet.

Suggested topics: Mechanics and Electrodynamics using the principles of Vector, Trigonometry and Calculus
