Top 5 books for IIT preparation

 

For achieving absolutely anything in life, two things are of utmost importance: the knowledge of your destination and of the path that would lead you there. The key is to just make up one’s mind about the path that needs to be taken and then sticking to it. Knowledge of the path in context of engineering entrance examinations includes choosing the best books for your IIT preparation.

Following the right preparation books and study material is very important for cracking entrance examinations because the knowledge required for solving these high standard problems is conceptual and not just superficial. Carefully select the list of books for IIT and you must own them only after consulting your lecturers, previous years’ rank holders in IIT JEE or other engineering entrance exams.

A list of few recommended books for IIT entrances are enlisted below:

All these IIT books for preparation are standard ones and can guide an aspirant to success if put to good use. The truth about these preparation books is that there are many available in the market which leaves the students perplexed as to which are the ones really worth investing in. It is advisable to set your priorities straight. First strengthen your conceptual basics, for which one might give a thorough reading to the NCERT books, i.e. the books followed by CBSE board for class XI and class XII. Once this is done then only mock tests and high level books for IIT would prove to be of any help.

Get your hands on the best books for IIT, but remember not to overdo it. Following too many IIT books would just make it more confusing for you. Different authors might take different approaches to the same problem, so take some effort to get your hands on the best preparation books in addition to NCERT books. Don’t be misguided by jazzy titles, authors with impressive names, higher prices or big publishing houses. Sometimes the best preparation books are the most inexpensive ones.
