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.

You are a member of brilliant community don't worry about boards.

- 6 years, 5 months ago

yes you are right if u r a member of brilliant you dont need to worry but yeah its CBSE down the lane, der the practice from brilliant comes in use but for boards you need to learn and practice their techniques so its needed...

Thanks for both of your views bros.Harshvardhan Mehta and Megh choksi!Lets be friends.But harshvardhan bro me next year i.e., june 2015-march2016.Now at the verge of completion of 11th.

- 6 years, 5 months ago

wow den i guess you are starting pretty soon... sounds good so you want recommendation for Good practice books for JEE as well as Boards?

- 6 years, 5 months ago

Harshvardhan mehta : You are absolutely right in both your comments dude.But my primary focus is too master boards if i do so then jee preparations would be a lot easier.Thanks for your support and i want it to prolong forever.

- 6 years, 5 months ago

hey d recommendations which i would make are :

(1) For Boards

(i) Physics : Your Textbook is exceptionally well prepared for it and has all types of problems.. p.s. if you do the additional exercises. and then you can do the sample papers. Its more than enough and yeah practice the derivations very nicely.

(ii) Chemistry : In this also refer textbook first and yeah i myself found the pradeep series extremely good. and the sample papers refers to all subs.

(iii) Maths : After textbook refer R.D Sharma if you have the courage.

(2) For JEE

# First refer your classes material if you attending any

(i) Physics : H.C. Verma are the basic then go towards Resnick Halliday(i personally dont suggest u much of this although this is an exceptionally good book but too lengthy) or the D.C Pandey Series or I.E. Iridov. i have personally this to be very good books.

(ii) Chemistry : In this subject you would find loads and loads of books. I personally referred Paula Bruice (for Organic Chemistry) also Morrison and Boys is good for O.C.(i would say both are equally good and yoou refer any one of them) then for inorganic and numerical O.P. Tondon and J.D Lee are the best.

(iii) Mathematics : Again this section consists of the widest range of books. I have referred M.L. Khanna (and i would say this is the best thing ever which i could have done) then for algebra i have reffered "Algebra" by Dr. SK Goyal publisher Arihant. and i even tries Differential Calculas and Integral Calculus (two separate books) by "Amit M Agarwal" again Arihant Publications... and yeah anytime out Brilliant is the best of all...

and after all this just in case you would still be alive i would suggest you get a book from market on past 33 to 40 years questions from JEE.. it helps....

and yeah last but not the least if you do all i mentioned above, I see no point you wont be an IITian in the coming future.. remember more than 15 lakh students apply each year.. and ppl say the real competition is in only 1 lakh students but i say its within and with you... personally i believe and say dont look after others just say to yourself that you will achieve more marks than the last time you did(p.s. just keep giving tests even if you are not completed with the syllabus) and yeah set a target say 300 and try and achieve it... just if you believe wat i said...

BEST OF LUCK..!!

In response to Harshvardhan Mehta:- Thanks a lot bro.I will give first preference to ncert book as you have said.After that i need a question bank or sample papers which would help me to understand the types of questions asked and ways to respond to it aptly.Which question bank I should go with?Would Arihant Exam Ready series help me or oswaal question bank or evergreen sample papers etc...?

- 6 years, 5 months ago

I dont have any idea about Evergreen but about the latter both are equally good.. take any 1 and yeah b4 that consult your school teachers about which will be the best

- 6 years, 5 months ago
