Ok. so since all want more info on the books to buy for your quest to reach the most prestigeous insti in India in the field of technology and engineering-  IIT

well nowadays 95% of the ppl that get selected in those 4000 sumthin ( which will soon become 5000 something) have formal training fromm the many ??coaching centres?? whose ad?s fill more than 70% of mathematics today magazine. and most of these places supply their own material, which in fact is made by plagiarism. anyways thats not the aim here, the aim is just
to let yall know what all books are well...good enough for the jee.

well let me go subject wise.
Mathematics:
TMH is good for solved examples, though this book doesnt have enough exercises, but then if ya cover the solution, a solved example is but a problem. each chapter has about 100 solved examples. and plz plz buy the latest edition. this might be around 450 bucks
PROBLEMS PLUS IN IIT MATHS by Das gUPTA. about 250 Rs
This bloke?s book has decent set of problems too. but ya knw in maths there is a lotta herapheri, you?ll see that most of the question are solved in TMH.

plz plz plz dont buy ML Khanna or RD sharma and the likes. These are just huge bums with lot of ?? i mean?? lot of shit. i mean do you really want 40 examples each subtopic. and from what i?ve heard, ML khannna has only solved examples. anyways i dont have it, so shouldn?t you.

do get DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS AND INTEGRAL CALCULUS by Amit Agarwal by ARIHANTH, each RS 200. these are gr8 books the level of problems is good and so is the collection. you wont find much of these problems in other books

also for theory on calculus do get Thomas and Finney by Pearson Education ABOUT Rs 500, though bargaining will modify that.
This is a gr8 book and should be renamed ?? calculus for dummies??. it has lot of good examples, exercises, in depth theory, formulas, diagrams etc. and dont forget the CD.

then there?s the usual SL Loney, Shanti Narayan, Piskunov for vector,trigonometry and all that and calculus.

also must must must is ?? play with graphs?? by amit agarwal.... arihanth publications.
its superb. help you transform graphs and shit. very useful for mains and screening.

for other topics such as progression, inequalities, probability, school stuff along with solved examples should do.

also dont forget MCQ by bharati bhawan publications. and KD JOSHI should be read after completion of the chapter since its more of a revision book and not for a first timer. also KD has only JEE AND OLYMPIAD PROBLEMS .

if ya have cash left as well as the time, then get 3000 SOLVED PROBLEMS IN MATHS BY SCHAUM SERIES, by TMH.

Physics:

for mechanics: un doubdtedly DC PANDEY IS THE BEST!!!!!!! but forst refer to the theory by resnick and h c verma.
also, for chapters like rotational mechanics
a book called interactive physics by MTG( RS 120) is excellent, because its the only book of its kind in the market, you?ll see why.

for thermodynamics resnick halliday and krane is the best, though you can refer to h c verma for theory and DC PANDEY for problems

electricity,magnetism etc again DC pandey and Resnick and school stuff must do(we havnt done it yet so i wudnt know)


solve irodov, problems in physics iff u have time

chemistry:
physical:
atkins is pretty good. the basics include OP AGARWAL, OP TANDON. problems from bahadur, this has all the problems in the world but little theory. the solved examples are betta than the actual exercise.

inorganic
JD LEE is god book, also your school text book, op agarwal tandon and arihanth for problems will do.

organic:
morrison and boyd is the god book.
solomons and fryhle is darn good too. besides this essesntial is peter sykes : reaction mechanism. schaum series for last minute practice. tandon is ok for beginners. and arihanth for problems: beware it has many wrong answers.


apart from this you can also get stuff by brilliant, apex, FIITJEE
must: subscription to PCM TODAY and PCM refresher. trust me the facts are consie and the selection of problems is gr8.
and also if you have access to net do enrol for the free course by apex knowledge city. it sends you free question every day.so thats like 100 question every month per subject. and whats more that give you free notes on mechanics and calculus.

do refer to the tips on FIITJEE.COM and their solved examples and solve the previous JEE papers during last hours.
