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 should prefer books of cengage publication for jee advanced .

You can have Higher Algebra and Problems in Mathematics for Mathematics BTW I'm also entering in class 11.

HC Verma and IE Irodov For Physics is the must

- 4 years, 9 months ago

I E Irodov is not really a must have book . It's just for those who want to do it .

Many of my friends are studying in IITs and they didn't even buy that book . Mostly , it's just a popular folklore that Irodov is a must for clearing JEE .

However , for clearing the NSEP level exams , it'll be a bad choice not to use it .

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Do you practise from Irodov??

- 4 years, 9 months ago

As of now , I don't do . Actually I have never felt the need to do so . I practice from my Resonance DLPD material and for extra knowledge , I refer to Resnick , Halliday and here .

- 4 years, 9 months ago

And which books you use for maths BTW I'm from Resonance(Kota).

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Haha , I have a cupboard full of Maths books!

Frankly if I were to suggest you Maths books , go for the Reso Books itself , especially some of the DLPD books contain really good theory .(I'm sure @Pranjal Jain will agree with me too ) You know this time , he's gonna come out to be JEE AIR 1 .

Coming back to the topic , some of the books that I have are :

• Coordinate Geo , Integral Calc , Differential Calc . from Arihant

• Higher Algebra (H&K)

• Coord. Geo by SL Loney

• and the rest are just ebooks and the wikis from that I downloaded from the Internet .

Indeed! Reso's material and faculties both are awesome. I will miss them in IIT.

## As far as books are concerned, I prefer reso's material (I don't know about dlp, I am from classroom). I usually do TMH for Maths, MS Chauhan's book (HOD, Organic, Vibrant), Deb Mukherjee and HCV for physics. And of course, previous years papers (40 years). The order of importance is Reso Material>JEE previous years' question>Other books.

@Azhaghu Roopesh M I won't get JEE 1, very obviously. There are many contenders like you and Ronak for that rank.

@Calvin Lin Can you fix these Block letters? Thanks

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Ye I too agree with you as I have gone through reso books and they really good (that's why I chose reso :P). Which coaching are you from ??

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Actually it's a not so good coaching centre called IIT Ashram , based in Vadodara . It's really bad , I just regret joining it since I had to do all the hard work myself , there's no one to help you there .

My abilities had diminished because of the teaching there . So I had to do a lot of hard work on my own from last December to become what I am now .

Is Higher Algebra beneficial for a student of Class 9( As I brought a copy a week ago)?

- 4 years, 9 months ago

It's a great book you must surely try it.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

I have learnt Synthetic Division and Theory of Equations from there , I really don't know much about the rest . Sorry .

- 4 years, 9 months ago

I do Practice.( Though younger) But some questions seem unsolvable!

- 4 years, 9 months ago

I too try it sometimes but right now I'm in 10 class so I'm to solve some probs.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Is it a right book for me? ( I had started doing from class 8)

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Yes, I think you should keep trying it. It would be benificial for you in future.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Are You really 14?

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Yup!!

- 4 years, 9 months ago

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Well I'm actually 15 but acc. to my Birth Certificate I'm 14.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

I'm also 13 by my birth certificate.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Well, I think Studying Physics should be aimed to acquire knowledge , not to clear any examination. Irodov is a must as it tests your foundation skills

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Yeah, I agree with you that everyone must acquire knowledge first . But do you think that everyone can get to like a subject just because others like it ?

It's almost as if you are making Jahnvi believe that to gain knowledge in Physics, you must solve that book . You aren't making your point very clear , that's what I wanted to point out .

Don't get me wrong :)

- 4 years, 9 months ago

No, No, You are also very right on your part
