JEE 2015 approaching!

As around just 100 days left in JEE Advanced 2015, I have decided to post a set of 8 problems every week (4 topics/set, 2 questions/topic). I hope these sets will cover most of the syllabus. $$\ddot\smile$$

I'll keep on updating this note to add new links every week. Feedbacks and suggestions are welcomed.

So here goes my list:

1. My Picks for JEE 1
2. My Picks for JEE 2
3. $(i)$ My Picks for JEE Advanced 1 $(ii)$ My Picks for JEE Mains 1
4. $(i)$ My Picks for JEE Advanced 2

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Best Of Luck To Everyone !!!

It would be nice if I could get into a good IIT and it would be even better if someone from Brilliant is there with me .

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Best of luck to you too! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Aren't all IITs good?

All the best

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yes, I think 'good' is a relative term. They are better than other colleges in India. But IIT-B is better than IIT-Bhu or IIT-Roorkee. So we can't say IIT-Bhu is bad. That's just a comparison.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yeah, actually I was indeed referring to IIT-B, getting to study CS at IIT-B would be the best !!!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Its on number 4 in my list. After Bombay, Delhi and Kanpur.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Here's the next Advanced one. Mains will be coming tomorrow. Any suggestion/idea?

I'll also welcome chapter requests as in which chapters do you want. I get confused like "Should I post this one or that one? This is interesting but that's important..." and then end up posting bad or not-so-good questions.

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Your questions are great.. if not the best. I don't think you should call them bad.

Which coaching centre do you go to?

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Resonance

- 5 years, 7 months ago

@Pranjal Jain Can you please post Chemistry questions?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Well, I can post physical chemistry problems but then for organic and inorganic chemistry, problems will be disputed too much. I'll try to post physical chemistry problems! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Ok..No problem

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I don't think there is much scope to debate on problems on inorganic chemistry although I have to agree that questions on organic chemistry may cause a debate. But I would still encourage you to put up questions on these topics because that would at least provide a platform to discuss chemistry related topics on brilliant.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks for suggestion! I'll try. But as you can see $\left \lfloor \dfrac{109}{7} \right \rfloor=15$ sets can be posted at max. (Can't post more than one/week as time don't allow me) $15×8=120$ problems will be posted. Now dividing them among chapters, I don't think I'll get more than 2/chapter.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Don't worry a lot of people on Brilliant will help you. At least I would. I would once again begin posting problems once my mid semester exams get over and I get some time to think and post problems and that is by the end of February.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Oh! So nice of you! Thanks!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Hi @Pranjal Jain , here I have posted a Physical Chemistry Question . I'd like it if you included it in your set.

It's just a suggestion !!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I'll surely try to include it in relevant topic! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Second set launched!!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

nice set of questions... but i guess you should increase its difficulty as it would be more challenging and interesting...

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Sure! I'll keep it in mind next time. I think its difficulty level will increase gradually. 😏

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Any feedback on new set?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Good Practice of Conics for JEE: Conic Challenges for JEE

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Haha , 100 day streak ! Congrats :)

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Anyone uses Physics Galaxy by Ashish Arora as a reference book for physics??

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Yes, I do! But only for Mechanics.

- 5 years, 7 months ago

What references do you use for other topics of physics, please tell me.

- 5 years, 7 months ago

For EM, I prefer Anurag Mishra. For Waves/Optics, I don't use any specific book. I use MCQ by Deb Mukherjee in general.

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Thanks!!

Would you tell me good reference books for other subjects as well? (only if I am not disturbing you much; I know you are busy with your JEE prep) .I have just completed my class 11th course in my coaching.

- 5 years, 7 months ago

For maths, I use "TMH for JEE Advanced"

For Organic Chemistry, "MS Chauhan"

For Physical Chemistry, I use book written by my teacher, SM Sir (Disha Publications).

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Your sets will now be useful for future aspirants like me! ( Though I don't want to be an Engineer, but a mathematical physicist).

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Good Work Bro.. and good questions too.. keep it up,,

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks! I think it would be better if I include problems by other members also. @Sandeep Bhardwaj has some nice sets for JEE. And he won't mind me stealing one or two questions! Though I think new problems would be better. Whats say?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yeah thats a good idea... also check out problems for mechanics and electricity magnetism

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yeah! Sure!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Check out my question ''JEE mechanics problem 1'' I have contributed it to your set

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Well, Can you explain if you want us to find distance travelled after removing the 5 kg block or since the start? And are we supposed to calculate the height or the distance travelled?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Best of luck!!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Good ahead dude ! I always support innovative and useful stuffs. Keep it up !

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Is it "Good+Go ahead"? Lol! Thanks! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yeah...it's the same. You got it right.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

nice work man!!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

keep up the effort!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Good effort. Keep posting

And best of luck for JEE.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Nice work ! Hey Please Post Mechanics and E+M question also , Thanks !

Hey Also share Your Views on this Note If you don;t mind :: JEE Coming

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I'll surely share my views! I think Mechanics and EM may appear in next set! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

This is a great initiative that you have got going , thumbs up !!!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks Azhaghu!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Great! Thumbs Up to your idea!! This is definitely an inspiration motivation to all IIT aspirants out there.

All the Best for your examinations.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks! I recently found there are so many JEE aspirants here.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Include me in your ''aspirants'' list! @Pranjal Jain

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Included! You'll be contesting as NRI? (From Bahrain?)

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Nope. I'm in grade 10 now.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Hello guys...

Inspired from Pranjal's message board i have also created something similar... pls check it out

- 5 years, 8 months ago

This is not my 'message-board'... Lol. I noticed you are really inspired by me! Copied the concept and even my lines!! 'So here goes my list' -_- Well, I won't really mind it. 😜

- 5 years, 8 months ago

m sry bro u see m bad at forming those... alright i'll change them

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Hey! Cmon! I was joking with you! I added 'I won't mind'. Never mind. Its totally fine!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

ohhh.... wel how are your prep for jee nd whats your expected score?? and which branch you wanna pursue?/

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Well, I posted this on a note JEE coming... by Karan Shekhawat. Can you check it out there? What I didn't posted there is the branch. I love computer science (though I am Level 3 here, don't know anything about python). Even I have Computer Science as 5th subject. So that's gonna be CS most probably. I would be happy if I'll get it in IIT-B or IIT-D or IIT-K.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Nice problems! Best of luck to everyone!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Can you post some problems for combinatorics...????? Plz!!!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

This set contains two nice probability questions. You may also see some combinatorics questions on my profile. Sorry but I don't think combinatorics will be in set 2. It might be back later.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

OK thanks....best luck for jee.!!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Here are some problems on probability for JEE-Advanced. All are nice ones and relevant for JEE. Thanks to @megh choksi

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks a lot!!!!😁

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Y dont you try these, Combinatorics and Probability set by @Andrei Golovanov it consists of the most interesting and challenging question till date and second my set Combinatorics Challanger.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

So I have added solutions to problems without a nice solution or if I had alternate solution. Gonna post next set tomorrow morning. (IST) Cheers! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Given the fact that some problems in these sets are really easy, I am thinking of posting two sets per week, one for Mains and other for Advanced.

As @Harshvardhan Mehta pointed out, questions must be challenging. But at the same time, JEE Mains should also be taken cared of. So I hope this is a better idea.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Nice idea!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Electrostatics is one topic that has been left out , can you post some questions on it ?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Very soon! Maybe in next one! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

thanks for taking my review into consideration..

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I was actually a bit busy with my board practicals, so couldn't get nice questions. I realised this very soon. Working up on next set(s)

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yep that always comes first.. Looking forward for your next set of qestions.. :) and yeah a request can you try and give e a feedback and level suggesion on my set of questions.. you already know the note so....

- 5 years, 8 months ago

New sets launched!! I hope you guys will enjoy them. Keep posting solutions and resharing problems. $\ddot\smile$

(3 chapters, 6 problems)/set this time as I focussed on quality more than quantity. Actually quantity has increased as 2 sets are there this time. Anyways, cheers!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I am confused with which chapters should I post in next set. Any idea/suggestion?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

You can try Ionic Equilibrium, Qualitative Analysis, Coordination compounds, Electrochemistry

- 5 years, 8 months ago

So much Chemistry? -_- Ok I'll add Thermodynamics.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks for considering my suggestions $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 8 months ago

@Deepanshu Gupta , @Ronak Agarwal ,@Pranjal Jain from which books (apart from coaching modules) have you been practising Physics for JEE , NSEP, KVPY and other olympiads ???

- 5 years, 7 months ago

If you want conceptual but limited questionsquestions, see MCQ by Deb Mukherjee. Flipkart link, if you want questions ranging from formula substitution to some better ones, see Concepts of Physics by HC Verma. Flipkart Link for Part 1, Flipkart Link for Part 2 and finally, if you want problems on blending physics with calculus, there is a book by IE Irodov Flipkart Link

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Thank you very much.

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Can somebody solve this Problem

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Hello everyone! I think I won't be able to post complete sets now, unfortunately! It'd be better if I post questions one by one whenever I find something interesting. Thanks for support! $\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Loved your questions ! Thanks for posting them :)

- 5 years, 7 months ago

And, is electronic and communication not available in IITs? I checked a few sites but didnt find the category.

Can you name a few engg colleges in india apart from iits which are of equally high standards?

- 5 years, 7 months ago

Thanks @Ritu Roy They are available. IIT-Kharagpur, IIT-Roorkee

BITS, Pilani is the only comparable college in India.
