- BL Sharma: Mathematics for Engineering Entrances
- Cengage: Mathematics for JEE Main
For more in-depth preparation for JEE Main and JEE Advanced apart from the above three books, below are the additional books students can refer:
- Arihant Algebra: Topics like permutation and Combination, Sequence and Series, Complex Numbers and Theory of Equations are explained very well in the book with good competitive questions for the same.
- Arihant Differential Calculus: Calculus can be tricky sometimes in JEE. So, it would be better to give it more weightage and prepare for it separately.
- Arihant Integral Calculus: Indefinite Integral and area under the curve are very important topics for JEE preparation. Arihant Integral Calculus covers these topics in details and comprehensive manner.
- HC Verma (Concept of Physics- Volume 1 and Volume 2): This book is considered are the best and most popular book for JEE Preparation for Physics. Written by HC Verma, this book has helped JEE aspirants from its inception. This book is considered a little advance, and if any student in Physics is weak, it would be better to go for other options before trying this.
- Irodov Physics Book: This book mainly focusses on numerical and should not be considered of much value for JEE Mains. But this book will give you good ground for JEE advanced preparation.
- DC Pandey's IIT JEE Physics: It can be really helpful for students trying to brush up concepts as it contains detail solutions for previous year questions of JEE Mains and JEE Advanced.
- LA Sena Physics Book: This book is again for students that like to understand Physics by looking at solutions of the questions. Along with DC Pandey's IIT JEE Physics, this book is very good for students who are average in Physics.
- Fundamental Physics- Halliday, Resnick and Walker: This is a long and heavy book to start with. Chapters are explained in details but relevant examples and numerical at the end of each chapter. But theory part is lengthy and irrelevant in some cases as it explains the historical background and description of laboratory experiments.
JEE chemistry can be divided into 4 parts:
- General Chemistry
- Physical Chemistry
- Organic Chemistry
- Inorganic Chemistry
Each part has its special requirement to study for the competitive exam like JEE Mains and JEE Advanced.
Important: NCERT books are very necessary and good for chemistry. In case student don't wish to go in the depth of any subject, he should atleast go through the topic thoroughly from NCERT.
Below are the some of the books recommended for JEE:
- OP Tandon: Physical Chemistry
- RC Mukherjee: For saving Numericals
- Physical Concepts by PW Atkins
- Numerical Chemistry for P Bahadur
- JD Lee for Inorganic Chemistry
- Inorganic Chemistry by VK Jaiswal
- Morrison Organic Chemistry
- Bahl and Bahl Organic Chemistry
- MS Chauhan Organic Chemistry
