Known as one of the world’s toughest entrance exams, IIT JEE preparation needs in-depth planning and reliable resources. As highlighted in our last post “Role of Parents in JEE Preparation”, practice is the key to success in this examination.

Although Plancess Test Series is the best resource to strengthen your preparation for this test, you need to be strong at your theory and concepts.  This not only helps to understand every problem but also to find a solution to it.

We have created a thorough list of 6 IIT JEE Preparation Books, which every aspirant should refer to. These books are for concept building and to get a better and deeper understanding of the topics. So, this list is created by our in-house team of IITians and Plancess Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).
