Note: You cannot finish all the books and we don’t even recommend doing so as time is less. For IIT JEE, you have to study smart. Refer to the books for various approaches used to solve the questions. Also, solve previous years’ question papers and appear for the mock test. Most importantly, study daily as small continuous efforts lead to big achievements.
