Ques. Physics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.

Ans. For Physics I used HE Verma and DC Pandey for mechanics and light and optics. HC Verma is best for the rotational motion and the impulse and momentum.
NCERT, HC Verma, and CD Pandey are the books sufficient for the study of JEE. No further books are required. Questions written after the chapter is very important to solve because the question in JEE comes as it is from the book. The mechanics portion and rotational mechanics are very important , questions definitely come from this section too and one's rank is decided by these topics as they hold the maximum weight in JEE examination.

Chemical bonding.
Dr. O P Tondon is very good book for deep knowledge involving reactions for inorganic and organic chemistry.
Chemistry questions are not tuff in JEE if the basic concepts are properly cleared. Thermodynamics and equilibrium questions are very important they always comes in the question Paper. The practice of these questions is very important and they will solve only when one has the good approach of solving the questions.

Ans. I used RD Sharma and it made a great effect on the paper as I didn't study much in Math a type of overconfidence when I attempted the test series I found my marks are getting deducted from Math, so I started studying from RD Sharma within 2 months I covered most of the syllabus as my concept were clear I just have to take quick revision.
