Appreciate our afforts, help your friends! Share this article.

It’s a never-ending debate among students that what books are best for IIT Mains and Advance preparation. It is very important to understand that there is no miraculous book ever existed which will immediately clear all doubts and launch you to the toppers’ pool. But there exist so many which don’t not worth their price and are totally waste of time and money.

The IIT entrance is divided into two parts. Mains and Advance. You need to qualify JEE Mains exam with a prescribed minimum score to sit in JEE Advance. After qualifying JEE Advance you will secure your seat in IITs.

Other than an aggregate score, an individual subject cut off in JEE for Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics is also there. You will also have to clear subject cut off as well to become eligible for JEE counseling.

Since the exam syllabus for IIT JEE Mains and Advance also slightly varies, the books you need to prepare for IIT JEE Advance are slightly different from the books you will require to prepare for JEE Mains only.

Let’s have a comprehensive look at various books recommended by toppers and gurus a student must have if he or she is preparing for JEE Mains or Advance.
