Best Books for IIT JAM Physics Preparation | Study Material


IIT JAM is conducted for providing admission into a masters program which is offered by the top institutes. It is known as Joint Admission Test for Masters Program. To score very good marks in IIT JAM Physics section, candidates need to go through with effective preparation tips. When you are going to start preparation, you need to go through with the IIT JAM Syllabus and Exam pattern. Once you have the complete information or idea about the IIT JAM Physics syllabus then you need to find out that which is the best books for IIT JAM Physics Preparation/Study Material. As there are two type students, one who is preparing by own self and one who is preparing by joining coaching institutes. For both type of students has their own tips and strategy but the last both want to become successfully crack IIT JAM Physics Section.

IIT JAM Physics Syllabus 2019
JAM Maths syllabus is comprised from below listed subjects:

  • Mathematical Methods
  • Mechanics and General Properties of Matter
  • Oscillations, Waves, and Optics
  • Electricity and Magnetism
  • Kinetic theory, Thermodynamics
  • Modern Physics
  • Solid State Physics, Devices and Electronics

Why these are the best books?

For the Physics section, you also must have the best knowledge of the theoretical section. Once you started your study from the final year of the engineering then you need to give more time to understand the basic concept of the theoretical subjects.

If you ask any experts how to remember after preparing topics then he always suggests to you that practice some unsolved questions from the same topics.

As much as you can solve previous year question papers, try to solve them because as per past year trends 30% questions in physics section are directly asked or repeatedly asked from the previous year question papers. Candidates can do or attempt these previous year question papers in the same environment they can check their preparation level.

Don’t take it too tough papers or section, whenever I am trying to ask aspirants which is the toughest section in IIT JAM examination then I got an answer from them physics is the toughest section. As we all know as well it is the topmost master level examination after your engineering but as the comparison to JEE Main or NEET, it is not a too tough examination. Try each and every section difficulty level at the same level.
