JEE 2017 will be held in two parts, the JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced). So far there is no news of whether there would be change in pattern or not, so let us proceed assuming that the exam pattern of JEE Main 2017 would be same as this year.
Preparation for JEE Main 2017 and IIT JEE Advanced 2017 will be complementary. That means that you do not have to separately prepare for them. Difficulty level wise, JEE Main is a little easier than IIT JEE but preparation should be equally rigorous as the number of candidates competing for seats in top engineering colleges is high.
1 | Important Books for JEE (Main + Advanced) 2017 Preparation.
- NCERT for all subjects.
- Pradeep's for chemistry - to understand theory of some chapters, and problem solving.
Subject wise books
- RD Sharma
- IA Maron for Calculus
- Thomas Finney
- Hall and Knight for Algebra
- OP Tandon for Organic and Inroganic Chemistry
- RC Mukherjee's book on chemical calculations
- P Bahadur for numerical chemistry
- HC Verma volume 1 and 2
- DC Pandey's IIT JEE Physics
- Resnick Halliday's Problems in General Physics.
First study theory from NCERT and solve all its exercise problems. In maths, definitely solve the Misc exercises. Then move on to these books to build your problem solving skills.
2 | Time Table and Time Management for JEE Main and Advanced 2017 Preparation.
Thankfully, you are starting early! (Way to go! )
Daily schedule - Pay attention in school and coaching, so that whenever something is being taught, you understand that then and there only. When you do self studies, you can then focus on problem solving.
Along with theory, keep practicing MCQs. For example after studying one chapter of Physics from NCERT, solve all its questions from HC Verma.
Month wise - In a diary or notebook, divide chapters of class 11 and 12 month-wise. Make the goals realistic and stick to them.
By the time class 11 topics are finished, do a revision by attempting a mock test or trying to attempt class 11 questions in past year JEE Papers.
Each day you need to focus on managing time. But keep in mind that health is also important. So do not compromise on eating and sleeping during preparation. Also, do not waste time in travel, try to join a coaching / tuition that is nearer to your home.
3 | Preparation Strategy
The best strategy is to do self analysis continuously and strive to improve every day. Divide the topics into three columns - 1. Strength, 2. Weakness, 3. Okayish. Each day, work on your strengths and make them unbeatable; work on your weaknesses and try to shift them to okayish; work on your okayish topics and move them to strengths!
Soon you will be able to ace the exam!!!
Best of luck!
