Mathematics is often considered the most challenging subject and most students find it daunting to get through the JEE paper. But with the right strategies applied, mathematics can be less intimidating.
In this article, we shall discuss how to approach the JEE mathematics paper.
Tips for Effective JEE Preparation
Practise the problems
Practise until you make it! Yes, this is the only way to ace Mathematics. You will have to put in a lot of time in order to get a hang of the numerical problems. Allot 2-3 hours a day in your timetable just to practise the Mathematics numerical problems. Take up the most difficult and challenging topics first and solve them. Later you can move to the easy one’s.
Understand the Logic
You will have to memorise the formulas but if you can understand the logic behind it and the applications of the formula, then Mathematics can be the most interesting subject amongst all. Read a lot of books and watch simple videos from youtube to understand the logic. This will help you to keep things interesting.
Maintain a Formula Book
This is one of the important steps that you have to follow while preparing for JEE Mathematics. Maintain a separate notebook where you write down all the formulas that you come across while studying. Keep memorising these formulas in your free time. Write down the formulas on sticky notes or prepare flashcards to remember it well.
Solve Previous Year Question Papers
Solving previous year question papers is the best way to understand the type of questions that you will come across in JEE. Collect at least 5-8 years of previous question papers and grade yourself after solving them.
Refer Good Books
The standard NCERT books have to be followed for JEE Mathematics. Apart from this, there are some other good books which you can follow for your JEE Mathematics preparation. The standard author names are mentioned below:
- R.D Sharma, Objective Mathematics
- S.L Loney, Trigonometry
- Arihant Prakashan, Integral Calculus
Attempt Mock Tests
Mock tests help you to analyse your own strengths and weaknesses. With each mock test, you can track your progress and understand where you are lagging behind. Attempt as many mock tests as possible in order to secure a good score in Mathematics.
