Subject wise JEE Main Books

The JEE Main syllabus is consists of three subjects:





Best Books for Physics

  • Concepts of Physics Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 - arguably the best book for beginners
  • Mechanics Part-1 & 2 by DC Pandey - the best book for rankers
  • Understanding Physics Electricity and Magnetism by DC Pandey
  • Understanding Physics for JEE Main & Advanced Optics & Modern Physics by DC Pandey
  • Understanding Physics for JEE Main & Advanced Waves & Thermodynamics by DC Pandey
  • You might rather want to buy the complete set of books - Understanding Physics Series (Set of 5 Books) by DC Pandey
  • Problems In General Physics by IE Irodov - buy this book if you want some challenge
  • Resnick Halliday - a great book for theory and non-trivial problems
  • New pattern Physics Book by DC Pandey - a great book for problems!


Best Books for Mathematics

  • RD Sharma class 11th and RD Sharma class 12th - people tend to underestimate the school level books. But these are the ones that will build your foundation.
  • Coordinate Geometry for IIT-JEE by SK Goyal - indeed a great book for Coordinate geometry. Its subjective problems are excellent
  • Differential Calculus for IIT-JEE by Amit Agarwal - the best book for differential calculus for any competitive exam
  • Integral Calculus for IIT-JEE by Amit Agarwal - the best book for integral calculus for any competitive exam
  • Algebra for JEE Main & Advanced by Arihant Publication - not the best book, goes a lot beyond the syllabus. If you are specifically preparing for JEE, then make sure to stick to syllabus
  • Vectors & 3D Geometry by Arihant Publications - again, a great book
  • Trigonometry for JEE Main & Advanced by Arihant Publications - trigonometry is not directly asked in JEE these days. Board level books are usually sufficient
  • IIT Mathematics by ML Khanna - a highly subjective book for JEE. This book might get you selected in JEE, but isn't sufficient for a good rank
  • Problems Plus In IIT Mathematics by A Das Gupta - I never used this book, but it is recommended by many toppers
  • COURSE in MATHEMATICS for IIT-JEE (TMH) - I would say that this is the best book for JEE when it comes to problems. The algebra section is the best in this book
  • A Practice Book of Mathematics JEE Main & Advanced by Arihant Publication - a great book for problems


Best Books for Chemistry

  • New Pattern Textbook of Physical Chemistry for Competitions (JEE Main & Advanced ) by OP Tondon - the best book for physical chemistry for any competitive exam
  • Modern Approach to Chemical Calculations by RC Mukherjee - the best book for physical chemistry for problems
  • Numerical Chemistry 22/e by P Bahadur - recommended by many top rankers
  • Organic Chemistry by LG Wade - this is the BEST possible book for organic chemistry. DON'T buy OP Tondon organic chemistry. Many aspirants buy random books and then the book says something in 1 chapter and something contradicting in the other chapter. If you trust me, buy this book and see the magic of organic chemistry.
  • Organic Chemistry by Morrison Boyd - you must read this book once if you are appearing for JEE. This is the so-called "HC Verma" of organic chemistry
  • Concise Inorganic Chemistry by JD Lee - a great book for inorganic chemistry. This book will teach you how to understand the subject rather than cramming it
  • Textbook of Inorganic Chemistry for Competitions (JEE Main & Advanced) by OP Tondon - a great book for problems
