Reference Books for Effective IIT JEE / JEE Main Preparation

A lot of students and their parents wonder which are the best books for IIT JEE preparation. Some of our experienced faculty, who are also IIT students and alumni, have listed in this post important reference books that are essential for an effective JEE preparation.

JEE Chemistry:

1. NCERT Chemistry 11th and 12th class: The NCERT chemistry books are quite exhaustive in the content aspect. The intext and exercise problems are on a very basic level and cover each and every part of the chapter. Use these books to develop sound fundamentals first, and then move on to more advanced level problems from other books and material.

2. P. Bhadhur Objective: It’s one of the most highly recommended books for physical chemistry for any engineering entrance exam. The set of problems in the book are very exhaustive. The problems available are from state level engineering entrance exams to JEE for each chapter in the book.

3. Arihant Organic Chemistry Objective (Optional): NCERT theory is sufficient for organic and Inorganic but to undergo extra practice, students can refer to Arihant publication books which are re-published each year based on the current pattern of JEE.

JEE Physics:

1. NCERT Physics 11th and 12th class: Physics NCERT textbook have been written marvellously well for Physics. The technical language is the first barrier you will face with these books, but it will only prepare you well for JEE. In JEE the first barrier is the language barrier, i.e you need to first comprehend what the problem states.

2. H.C.Verma: It was written by a Prof. from IIT-Kanpur in the early 90′s. It’s the only book till now which has explained all the concepts precisely with a very exhaustive set of problems. The problems of this book provokes analytical reasoning and helps develop strategy to apply concepts in every possible way.

3. Resnick, Halliday & Walker (Optional): This book is referred as additional reading material to further understand the theory of each chapter. Each and every concept is explained to the finest detail with multiple examples for each concept.
Few other books that you can use to pickup some quality problems – I.E Irodov and Concepts of Physics G.C. Agarwal

JEE Mathematics:

1. NCERT Maths 11th and 12th: The problems in the book are basic and easy. Most of the problems can be solved orally by the student. This book should be covered very early in one’s preparation.

2. A. Das Gupta Objective: It’s a practice book for each chapter, and a good indicator of your understanding of each chapter. ‘Practice makes perfect’ and this is the motto of this book.

3. S.L. Loney for Trigonometry and Coordinate Geometry: The author has written the book in a very exhaustive manner, in-fact even PhD students use these books. For ideal preparation it’s always preferred to have a mentor to guide the student on which part of the book is solved and which part can be left out.

4. G.N. Berman: This book is specifically used for Calculus, and on every concept in every chapter a number of different problems are available. Don’t use this book beyond Calculus as it contains higher level mathematics, which is not at all needed for JEE.

    • SL Arora is very cohesive and great for basics and good enough for scoring well in CBSE exams (better substiture for NCERT)but for IIT I think HC Verma or Haliday must be referred to.

    • HI Subhadeeo

      Try to use other books like H C VERMA for solving numericals and Resnick Halliday Walker to read theory to reach upto IIT Level. S L Arora can be used to get good marks in your CBSE Board Exams.

  1. I agree with your list. It is practical, and in my opinions includes all good and important books. I gave my JEE this year.

    • JEE and JEE advance are so different and yet too much different, Target JEE advance and prepare accordingly. Because JEE Mains is AIEEE, you can understand the pattern in last 2-3 weeks. JEE advance will be more conceptual and comprehensive in nature.
      Use the above recommended books for your preparations. If their is any particular need then you can have a word with me.

      Best Wishes

    • I’ll say that will depend on you, HC Verma is good for basics and concept building. Though very advance level problem are missing in it. But DC Pandey has both basic as well advance level problem.
      A core JEE aspirant should use HC Verma first and later try to solve DC Pandey in the reverse order (from last exercise to first)

      Best Wishes

  2. Please advice me which book is good for understanding Chapter Alternating Current for JEE advanced and capacitance also.
    and practicing questions on chapters also.

  3. Are foreign author books really recommendable? Coz they haven’t prepared anyone for JEE, isn’t the language sophisticated?
    Anyways, I am using RC Mukerjee for Physical Chem. , and DC Pandey and HCV for Physics and SK Goyal for Maths..
    Is it exhaustive enough to get me through? Or you also recommend some others?

    • Foreign Author books are good to understand the theory, JEE is not just an exam with fixed pattern. Its more conceptual in nature. So at this point try to focus on concepts. The books you are using are good and sufficient for a good IIT JEE preparations.

  4. is rd sharma better or a das gupta objective better? for iit preparations ………
    i dont go to anyy coaching classes so i need one good book for mathematics

  6. Do you think the importance of IITs is still relevant today when IITs have increased ? Moreover should one prepare from class IX onwards or XI onwards?Pls comment.

    • Yes, IIT’s are important even if there number has increased. The reason is not the brand name but the opportunities you get there. You are trained with the great minds of India and by the great minds. This is important to develop your thought process and help to have a successful career ahead.

    • If you are a workaholic student then join from 11th if you re not too serious then join from 9th because u ll know the pattern to do and complete studies

  7. i am in clss 11th…sggst mee some good books of maths and physics..for jee prepration..
    Em using TMH for maths and HCV for physics..plss sggst some more good books

    • The books you are using are sufficient, still you can use Resnick Halliday Walker, G.C Agarwal and Arihant physics for IIT additionally.
      For mathematics you can use A Das Gupta Objective, Arihant Maths for IIT JEE, S.L Loney for further practice.

  8. sir i wanna study for iit.. physics however does not work out for me that well.. please suggest some books so that i can prepare for physics.. Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday and Rensick is better or its iit edition?? i m presently studying in class 11th.. thank you!!

    • Its the best book if you want to understand the concepts. You can also avail University Physics which is quite similar. It will help u a lot

  9. sggst me the two best book for physics..other than halliday and irodov coz my teachers says..solving irodov nd all is really not usefull..coz they contain high level problems than IIT

    • ya, H C Verma works only on the basic fundamentals but D C Pandey will take you a step ahead of what is required for IIT JEE

  10. thnx a lot..for ur million dollar sggstns…plss..sgsst few very good boooks for physical and organic chemistry…

    • for organic i suggest you to use ORGANIC CHEMISTRY BY HIMANSHU PANDEY its a great practice book… its too juch isolated kinda off book but yeah its great in terms of quetions.. i am student of Himanshu pandey sir.. personally… he is the best teacher for organic anyone could ever have..

  11. Hello im in class 11th i want to start my jee preparations……
    i have TMH for maths , physics and chem
    HC Verma for phy
    is those books are enough to score …………..

    • Yes, they are good books to start with, go ahead and then have a word in a month or 2. I’ll help you with other good sources to learn from.

  12. Sir, should i use GN berman or thomas n finney for basics n concept building in calculus? Will it help me for jee adv? Or sgst me anothr book!

    • Use G N Berman but till integral calculus, please do not start with Areas and other chapters from it as it’s beyond your JEE level and you will waste a lot of time doing that.

  13. i am bit strong on physics and chemistry but my maths is poor i have took drop for jee preparation.. can you suggest me some book for maths with easy concept and good quetion.. i tried solving TMH (i understood the concepts but the question ran over through my head) please help….. i have heard name of such books:OBJECTIVE MATHEMATHICS BY RD SHARMA,ML KHANNA….

    • Please don’t cover the extra topics, but all the rest you can do it. Its a good book to practice with

  14. I am in Xth and will be giving board exams next year March. I have completed the mathematics syllabus for iit jee (except calculus) and I have completed many chapters of chemistry and physics. However I need one (and only one ) good book for organic chemistry. Please suggest.

    • Read NCERT first then you can use comprehensive chemistry for now. Later when you are in 11th please have a word with me again..

  15. I Am Preparing For Jee 2015 And Im In 11th Pls Suggest Me Good Books For Physics Chemistry And Maths
    Books I Own Till Now:
    JD LEE
    And Please Also Give Me A Stratergy To Solve Books On Each Subject (Like Which Book To Start First,How Many Books Etc…..)
    Tanx In Advance!!

    • Hi
      Please don’t use Irodov or RD Sharma. Also, I’ll say solve NCERT first nd you can start with any book of your choice, just make sure when you start a topic from any of the book don’t leave it in between to start it from other book. Complete it, get your doubts clear and then after few months do the same chapter from a different book.

      Best wishes

    • Hi Varun
      To master mathematics I’ll suggest you have doubt clearing session with some good teacher, as how to go about a problem can’t be learn quickly by books alone. Also you can refer M L Khanna subjective the old edition as it has all the solutions step wise and it will help you to get an idea.

      Best wishes

  16. Sir, presently I am in Grade Xth and i a have competed my NCERT course and i am keen in cracking IIT,so can you please help me with books I should start with..Like which books would be best..Thanxx in advance..

    • Hi
      Its too early to start with IIT preparations. But its good that you are clear about your future and aspirations. You can refer M L Khanna subjective the old edition, and start with straight lines. After straight lines try to learn trigonometry from it. These 2 chapters are very important and time consuming. So invest as much time as you can.

  17. I am student of class 11 preparing for JEE kindly suggest me some good books for maths(for concepts only).. i have lots of material to practice but i need the theory. Is KC Sinha better or something else?? pls reply

    • Hi
      At this point K C Sinha is a good book, you can use M L Khanna for theory or Amit Mishra’s IIT books. Still my personal suggestion will be to get a good teacher who can give you concise notes in each topic.

      • hey actually i m in 12th standerd i didnt join classes for iit jee preparation i have joined normal coaching classes IS this possible to prepare for iit jee and advanced and bord from now. I am ready to take any efforts m ready to study for 12 hours a day. is this possible to prepare for iit advanced without coaching classes plz tell me and plz man dont lie to encourage me tell me the truth plz plz plzzzz

        • Hi Nitish

          Everything is possible and if you really believe in it then surely its gonna happen.
          Its just a suggestion that you take guidance from your seniors or other teachers, anyways in the end even the best teacher can not make you Clear IIT if you don’t work hard enough. So, trust yourself and prepare well.
          Taking Guidance is not a bad option. Also, if you stick to self study then ready the chapter carefully atleast twice and write the concepts separately. Also, keep a proper revision schedule to revise each topic you have studied.

  20. you say DC Pandey is a good book. But there are so many books by DC Pandey. Which one should i buy? I already have the 34 year IITJEE ques. book by him. But it has limited ques. for practice.. i would like to practice more. So which DC Pandey book should i take.pls guide..

    • Hi Alisha

      Please buy the version which has key concepts and problems in it. Please do not by any objective book or IIT previous year papers chapterwise. If you are still confused then let me know I’ll help you with the links and then you can check the name and buy accordingly.

      Best Wishes

      • well from what i know. he has a different books for mechanics, thermodynamics, optics. no book with all chapters. this would practically drain me of my money!! i dont want soooo many books. maybe 1 or 2.
        Also wat is wrong with buying objective ques. book. that wud giv more practice.. right???

        • The issue with the problem books is that you will learn how to solve those problems types mentioned in those books. But you will not learn how to apply the concept in different situations which is more crucial in IIT JEE

          Also, you can buy G. C Agarwal Vol1 and Vol2 which is a complied book for key concepts and problems. It has 40-50 solved problems and then about 150 unsolved problems on each chapter which will help u a lot.

  21. sir, plz suggest me a good book for inorganic chemistry theory and problems. should i go with op tandon??i only have few study materials for practise ri8 now.

  22. sir,
    i understand all the concepts in class, practice some problems, (although i think i should practice more) etc, but i make a lot of mistakes. especially in tests, for chemistry, i find it hard to mug up reactions and end up making silly mistakes. what can i do to prevent such a scenario in the future?

    • Hi

      You are on the right track, just wait for some time. You are currently preparing yourself. Don’t have a mind set that as soon as you’ll learn things you will be able to master it. Mastering takes some more time. Be patient and keep doing your hardwork.

      One piece of advice, analyse your test papers after giving the test and once when you get it score. This help you a lot, to reduce your recurring mistakes. Also, it will help you to identify silly mistakes that you are doing.

      If there are few specific things you want to talk about please let me know more.

  24. Hello Sir,
    I am in class 9th now and want to go into Non-Medical stream for engineering and give the IIT JEE Exam after XII.
    Currently, I have a little knowledge about this and I am waiting eagerly to start preparation.
    Well, Currently in my school, (This time was my first Board Exam in September) I can easily score from 83 to 86 %. But looking at news everywhere, I am getting very scary becuase there’s written that even the students who are getting 97-98 in XII and 96-97′s in JEE MAIN are getting a rank of about 13 to 15000 !!! What should I do now ??? I know that I will have to do very hard work for this. Looking at this news, I have extended my cut-off ranking to 1000 only. I want to come under 1000.
    I trying very hard for achievements.
    Can some one give some advice to me what should I focus on for now and what preparation can I do for that exam because seeing the syllabus : , I can see that there’s some of the easy stuff out there which I am studying now.
    Well, Currently, I am almost ready for my 9th final exams (SA2-2014 [CBSE]) in Maths and Science. I am focusing for the Social Science, English and Hindi through concentration in school. Well, I am also worried about the Upcoming CBSE-PSA on JAN/18th/2014.
    Can someone please suggest me some books about these preparations and need advice also ???
    Any help would be appreciated.

    • Hi

      I think media has created a fear in your mind. IIT is not tough at all if you follow one simple rule and that is to be REGULAR in your studies. Please do not fear it, its a very concept based logical exam. Definitely to be regular you have to work hard enough but do not get scared of it. Use M.L Khanna for now and start studying Trigonometry and Co-ordinate Geometry from it. Aim to finish these two topics by 10th class end. Use the old edition of the book which has subjective problems and there stepwise solution in it as you will be learning by your own.
      Do not worry about much of other subject and enjoy your life.. If you’ll do this much in next one year, you will be able to achieve top 100 rank for sure.

    • Hi

      Do not worry about marks. You have just seen the drastic change in your understanding and it will take atleast 6-7 months more before you start getting a good score. You are currently in the preparatory phase of life and it will take some amount of time to master it. Just don’t loose hope and keep going.
      Also, just analysis your mistakes that you are doing, it may possible you are making same mistake again and again. So rectify it.

      Please do not consider yourself any less than CBSE students. IIT JEE is all about understanding the very crux of the problem and solving them conceptually. You can start with NCERT as of now, later once you have studied 5-6 chapter you can take a call which book you want to buy.

I purchased HC Verma for physics (volumes 1 and 2) and A Das Gupta for mathes. I am confused which book to buy for chemistry as I am seeing different names with same author. Also to buy online most of the Bhadur books are out of stock on flipkart website. Can you send me some links for chemistry covering both concept and problems.


    • Hi,

      If its difficult to get hands on P bhadhur then second choice is RC Mukherjee. I’ll suggest try to get an ebook of P bhadhur and start practising from it. As in General for chemistry all 3 sections needs different books. So start by physical as its most logical section and time consuming. Keep others for later as of yet. Once you finish Physical get in touch once again I’ll help you out how to deal with other 2 sections.

      Don’t worry much about your boards right now. Focus only on two things, firstly your IIT JEE preparations and then the experiments in physics and chemistry you perform in school.
      You will have sufficient amount of time to work on board exam just a week before it in Feb’2015. Till Jan’2015 only focus on your JEE preparations and work hard on it.
      If there are more queries please let me know.

      Best wishes

      • Hello sir…..
        I’m happy that u considered my comment.Thank you soooo much for that. But, In my school they say that for physics, board exam will be tough.They asked us to solve 115 previous year question papers. But, if I start my preparation for board in Feb then it creates a lot of problems.What should i do?…..

  38. Dear Sir,

    My son will join 11th this year. His marks are in the range of 70 to 85% in various exams( PCM) till now. ( slacker, but can be pushed).

    So he is above average, but not the cream. He is finding time management difficult.

    How do I know if he is capable of studying in I IT?

    I am NOT asking if he is capable to crack JEE. With an integrated coaching he may crack it.

    My worry is if he is capable (has the caliber)to study in I I T?

    Do you have any data on success rate within I I T w r to academic grade in 11th and 12th?



    • Hi,
      As far as studies in IIT’s are concerned its all about his interest in the branch he’ll take. Any student who is getting 65-70% in Maths and Science till 10th is capable of performing well in his engg. Therefore, at this point I’ll not suggest you to worry about his engg career, it will be great if he works above avg there as well.

      As for Time management right now in 11th and 12th is something which is the weak area for every IIT aspirant. I’ll suggest every student to have a GAME PLAN for these 22 months. You should be very clear what you are going to do even after 8 months from now on a particular day. So make a schedule for it and follow it. Secondly, please do not worry about his marks in school examination as he can score well in boards if he starts focusing on board pattern after 20th Feb of the year he’ll appear. Focus only on IIT right now leaving everything behind it. Third thing, please ask him to do experiments seriously in school labs as it will help him a lot to understand the core concepts he’ll be learning theoretically.

    • Hi,
      Please start with NCERT and finish them in next 8-10 months. Then start solving your maharashtra board books, you’ll find them very easy and it will hardly take a week to solve the whole textbook once you are thoroughly done with NCERT except on couple of chapters which are not their in NCERT book.

  41. Hi,
    The more you practice the better your odds are to CRACK IIT. Its not about how many books you have done for one chapter but about how many chapters you have done from each book. Take one book which you like and complete all the chapters from it quickly and move to next one.
    Every book will help you to develop few concepts. Even Olympiad books as well are good. If you have the time then you must solve them,

    Best Wishes
