Previous Year Question Papers

Previous Year Question Papers are a great source of learning as it gives you a clear-cut idea about the paper format, commonly asked questions, difficulty level and the number of questions that are likely to appear in the exam. Solving previous year question papers prove where you stand, pushing you more towards preparation so that you are able to understand all the topics clearly by putting more efforts.   

Mock test series

You can always gain confidence by taking regular mock tests, either online or offline to grab the right strategy for cracking the JEE Main 2020. It is a platform that exposes you to a variety of questions enhancing your problem-solving ability, hence giving you a great opportunity to learn and improve your performance. Solving Mock tests frequently could also help you in time management at the time of your exam.

Class 11th and 12th Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics Textbooks

Class 11th and 12th textbooks are the core books containing the basics that one should have to clear any test, be it JEE Main 2020 or a common entrance test. To excel with good scores in such difficult tests, it is very important that you focus on each and every chapter included in them. Understanding the concepts, theorems, solution approaches, formulas and equations is extremely crucial to crack any kind of question. Subjects like chemistry, maths and physics expect you to know the basics thoroughly to solve the problems at a faster pace.

Formula books

Formula books are quite handy when you solve JEE Main 2020 problems. Rather than wasting your time on finding the formulas on big fat textbooks, you can simply go through the formula books for quick reference for formulas, equations, theorems, standard values etc. This kind of short notes study material is extremely helpful for last-minute study for quick reference.

Topic-wise reference books

There are plenty of topic wise reference books that will come to your rescue when you are stuck on any particular concept and are unable to proceed further.
