All the three subjects of JEE paper are entirely different in their contents as well as the required in depth

knowledge and thus the preparation strategy cannot be same for all the three subjects. In this article I will discuss the strategy for preparing physics for IITJEE. I will tell you about how I prepared physics, the books I followed, some must do things and some don t dos. Observing the pattern of last 10 years, physics is generally the second toughest paper after mathematics in JEE. Solving problems of physics require good hold o n basic concepts of physics (like work-energy theorem, Newton s laws, etc). Cracki ng physics in JEE requires systematic and well planned preparation strategy. If you are starting a new chapter, never jump to questions until you have read the entire theory of the chapter from some good book. If you jump directly to questi ons then at many steps you will get stuck and since you have not read the chapte r thoroughly, you tend to form misconceptions and wrong explanations for things which might seem to work in some questions but not always. This is one of the bi ggest problems I have seen in the students. They somehow frame their own explana tions which work in some ideal cases. But remember that IIT is not going to ask you questions on ideal cases. While reading the theory, mark the important theor ems, pay attention to the assumptions that are being made to derive a formula an d keep them in mind. You may find some questions in JEE which seem to be simple task of plugging data in the formula and the answer thus found is present in the options (and you become happy). But often there is some catch. Check that the a ssumptions to derive the formula you are using are being satisfied by the condit ions in the question. Let me tell you how I prepared my physics. I used H.C. Verma s book to read the th eory. I used to do the solved examples given in the book and my package (without first seeing the solution). This prevents you from forming wrong concepts. When ever in doubt, refer back to the book and read the related topic/paragraph once again. Some concepts/lines in the book might not be clear in first reading. Don t worry. Put a mark on them and move ahead. Once the chapter is over, try to rerea d them. After doing the solved examples, I used to go to subjective questions of H.C. Verma and once done then I would do the objective questions from H.C. Verm a s book and from my study package. After completing all these I would move to pre vious years question bank of JEE. One thing I will like to mention that it is difficult to master all the chapters . But some chapters are quite easy to understand and often quite scoring (though they might be boring due to lots of new concepts). So such chapters must be mas tered. At last a final but very crucial point, don t jump over various books. Just choose one good book and follow it thoroughly.
