Best Books for JEE Main + Advanced 2021 (List Updated for 1-2 Months To Exam) – For Physics, Chemistry, Maths

Now that JEE Main 2021 will be held 4 times, the whole competition has changed!

After talking to some candidates, I understand that almost all of them are aiming to appear in all four attempts. At max, they may skip one attempt when their board exams are. But otherwise the goal now is to score good in attempt 1, better in attempt 2, and best in attempt 3 (considering that one attempt will have to be skipped).

Important: JEE Main Admit Card 2021

Here, I would say that change this strategy slightly to

  • Do good in attempt 1.
  • And try to do your best in attempt 2

Why? Because if you consider the first two attempts as just mock, then there will be tremendous pressure on you to perform really well in attempt 3. But if you do great in the second attempt itself, then you will feel tension-free in the third go and maybe end up doing even better!

Now when it comes to preparations for JEE Main 2021, I am sure you are also preparing for the JEE Advanced 2021 simultaneously. Because by the time your last attempt of the mains ends, Advanced will be a short while away. And you will not get a whole lot of time to specifically prepare for it then.

There are n number of aspects to tackle in JEE Main 2021 preparation. But the most logistical one is the books to prepare from. I remember that my life became a million times easier when I was told exactly which book to go for and it suited me. Let’s try to do that for you too.

Which are the Best Books to prepare for JEE Main 2021 and JEE Advanced 2021?
