"Coaching Classes and NCERT Books-key to Success"- says Saumya, who Scored 195 in JEE Main 2014

Soumya Ranjan Pandya scored 195 in the JEE Main 2014. She opted for offline exam mode and found it more comfortable between both the modes. She is currently studying in NIT Kurukshetra.

According to her, joining coaching classes and studying NCERT books is the key to success in this exam. Although she emphasize on self-study with coaching classes as it is a mandate to be successful in the exam.  She also gives importance to coaching study material along with NCERT books. Here are some preparation tips by her that will surely help you in preparing well.


She prapred Physics from H C Verma. According to her the best covered topics in HC Verma are Mechanics, Electrostatics, Modern Physics, Thermodynamics and Optics. She says both the books by HC Verma cover all the basic concepts of Physics for those students who are preparing for entrance exams. These books also have good illustrations that help to make strong concepts as well as wide range of problems with varying levels of difficulty.
Other Physics books which she used to prepare some crucial topics are-
1. I.E. Irodov
2. Halliday, Resnick& Walker
3. Krotov
4. Nelkon and Parker


JD Lee Chemistry book is very good for JEE preparation as well as for preparation of other engineering entrance exams too says Saumya . It is quite concise, covers the entire JEE syllabus and does not compromise on the essentials of Inorganic Chemistry. The book includes a lot of multiple-choice questions (MCQs), assertive-type questions as well as single-choice questions for student’s practice. The detailed answers are also given to the problems at the end of each chapter which help students to clarify their concepts and to gather step-by-step understanding of how to handle such problems in the future.
A Textbook of Organic Chemistry for IIT JEE by Arihant Prakashan is another most important book that catalyzes your way to quick learning and mastering the entire JEE syllabus of Organic Chemistry according to her. The day-wise learning modules form the highlights of Arihant Chemistry books also plays an important role. They also include the latest trends of questions asked in IIT JEE as well as previous years’ questions across the wide range of difficulty levels for all types of students.
 Physical Chemistry by O P Tandon is also a must read for all those who are preparing for IIT JEE or other engineering entrance examinations. The book covers each and every topic related to the JEE preparation such as Atomic Structure, Radioactivity and Nuclear Transformation etc.


She says R D Sharma Mathematics book is good for JEE preparation. This book is the one of the best books in Mathematics for beginners. It includes the exercises covering the entire syllabus of Mathematics pertaining to IIT JEE and other state level engineering examination preparation.
She further concludes that, although all topics are covered very well but the topics of Algebra have an edge over others. Permutations and Combinations, Probability, Quadratic equations and Determinants are worth mentioning. This book is one step solution for beginners. It includes illustrative solved examples which help in explaining the concepts better. Though the book has a good collection of problems but it cannot be considered as self-sufficient for the whole syllabus of Mathematics. An aspirant should also practice from other standard sources too.
