TopNewestFirstly, Physics and Mathematics are two very interestingly deadly subjects. Once you loose grip of them, you almost loose that forever. I'll recommend some books for now, trying solving each and every problem from them. Don't do the mistake that I did, i.e. completely leaving one subject for the sake of another.

Geometry:

Algebra:

Higher Algebrais more than enoughNumber Theory:

Physics:

General Olympiad books:

must buyfor gaining excellence in Olympiads.Books like RD Sharma and NCERT are not at all Olympiad Mathematics. A Olympiad student can do their problems even while watching CID. So start from my recommended books and gain excellence.

Hope that helps.

\(\text {Thank You Very Much !!!}\) , You have provided me with enough choices , I hope a few from them would work for me , because if I get too much of them, then confusion wouldn't let Me study.....! Btw I have the basic PCM resources for JEE, thanks for ur recommendation, Btw based on your experience , what would you suggest , shall I take one - two books or study all of them? One more question, are the titu andrescuu, math olympiad journals , & coxeter available in the market? Or I have to order them online? Thanking you once again for all your help!Log in to reply

It depends on you on the basis of your speed and urge of preparations, how many books do you want to buy at once. I have all the books as PDFs or hardcopies, and I don't find anything confusing me, to be very honest. Central to Mathematics and Physics is problem solving, so as many problems, that much of practice. If you want to get limited to some problems, atmost 5 books from the list may do. But I find myself comfortable with doing atleast 100 types of questions from a single topic, because that's fun.

Be free to ask me further questions, always ready to help :) – Swapnil Das · 7 months, 2 weeks ago

For elecro-magnetism - Edward M Purcell - Electricity and Magnetism, Griffiths,Jakson, I.E irodov(theory book)

Mechanics - Classical mechanics by david morin , Kleppner mechanics, I.E irodov(theory book)

Ray Optics and others - HC Verma , Halliday Resnik

Alzebra - Bernard and child, Hall and knight alzebra

Calculus - Tarasov calculus , I.A Maron calculus

Trignometry and Geometry - S.L Loney is the best

Questions in Physics - I.E irodov, Krotov.

Acc. to me , the best book for physics is -: Lewis-Carroll-Epstein-Thinking-Physics-Practical-Lessons-in-Critical-Thinking-Insight-Press-2002 – Akash Shukla · 7 months, 2 weeks ago

What can be the good books for KVS JMO & RMO ?Log in to reply

– Rajdeep Dhingra · 7 months, 2 weeks ago

Math , My Olympiad Math isn't very good. Also math can't be learned. It can only be practised. Try solving Past papers and other countries national papers.Log in to reply

The first book covers pure geometry and the second covers trigonometry (which is useful in pure geometry problems many times).

The third book deals with solving geometry probpems via complex numbers. – Deeparaj Bhat · 7 months, 3 weeks ago
