# How to study for JEE ADVANCED ??

Now that engineering aspirants are through with their JEE (Mains) 2014, it is time for them to buckle up for the next step, i.e JEE (Advanced) 2014 . The exam is going to be held on May 25, 2014.

The JEE (Advanced) question paper consists of questions from: Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.

Students may find Physics as a daunting subject and see fear clouding their mind before the exam. So, to help these students we have complied a few helpful tips for which will them prepare for the subject.

**Paper pattern:**

The exam consists of two objective type (MCQ) question papers, designed to test comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of candidates. Both the papers will be held for a duration of three hours and are made of three separate sections on Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.

Candidates can answer the questions in English or Hindi. Negative making is applicable for every wrong answer.

**Mathematics syllabus:**

**Algebra:**

Quadratic Equations and Expressions, Complex Numbers, Probability, Vectors and 3D Geometry, Matrices

**Coordinate Geometry:**

Circle, Parabola, Hyperbola

**Calculus:**

Functions, Limits, Continuity and Differentiability, Application of Derivatives, Definite Integral

**Tips:**

- If we analyse the previous year JEE papers, they suggest that the candidates should pay more attention to
**Vectors and 3-D**than Probability or Indefinite integration as vectors and 3-D offers very less scope to examiner, as far as variety in problem is concerned. Each year 2-3 questions are asked from Complex Number. Therefore mastering complex numbers, vectors, 3-D and Definite integral should be their top priority. - Students can make Algebra easier if they can harness the ability to picture functions as graphs and are good at applying vertical and horizontal origin shifts carefully as zeroes of functions and other specific values can be done in much less time using these techniques.
- Differential calculus again relates well to roots of equations, especially if you use the Rolle's and Lagrange's theorems.
- Students can use
**Complex numbers**to solve questions in co- ordinate geometry too. Trigonometric questions require applications of De Moivre's theorem. - Permutation - Combination and
**Probability**is another very important topic in algebra. Students have to be thorough with the basics of Bayes theorem, derangements and various ways of distribution, taking care of cases where objects are identical and when they are not. - Matrices can be related to equations, hence a 3x3 matrix can actually be visualized as being three-planed in 3D geometry. Determinants have some very nice properties, for instance, the ability to break them into two using a common summand from a row/ column, which should be made use of in tougher questions.
- Integral calculus can be simplified using tricks and keeping in mind some basic varieties of integrable functions.
**Remembering the properties**and applying them wisely saves lot of time. **Coordinate geometry**requires a good working knowledge of the parametric forms of various conic sections and an ability to convert the other, tougher ones to these basic forms and then interpret the solutions accordingly.- The most important point to keep in mind is that Mathematics can only be mastered with
**Regular practice**. Hence the students should try and solve as many sample papers and problems as possible on a regular basis.

**Chemistry syllabus:**

**Physical Chemistry:**

Redox & Equivalent Concepts

Electrochemistry

Thermodynamics

Ionic Equilibrium

**Organic Chemistry:**

GOC

Alkyl Halide

Aromatic Compounds

Alcohols & Ethers

Carbonyl Compounds

**InOrganic Chemistry:**

Qualitative Analysis

Coordination Chemistry

Chemical Bonding

s-p-d block

**Tips:**

- The students should focus on conceptual clarity, application skills and should be through with the prescribed syllabus.
- Students should practice the most relevant numerical daily in order to develop speed. They should pay special attention to topics like Mole concept, Chemical Equilibrium and Electrochemistry.
- While studying Organic Chemistry students should pay attention to topics like Stereochemistry, GOC (General Organic Chemistry) and Functional Group Analysis.
- In Inorganic Chemistry the questions are mainly conceptual, concerned with structures, processes and applications. Students should pay special attention to topics like Chemical Bonding and Coordination Chemistry.
- The students should stay focused and maintain a positive attitude.
- Practice as many mock-test series to build up speed and know the kind of questions generally asked. The students should focus on their weak areas and improve upon your concepts.
- Remember it is quality of time spent and not the quantity alone. Hence give short breaks of 5 to 10 minutes every 1-2 hours of serious study. Completely relax when you take a break. Practice meditation to develop inner calm, poise, confidence and power of concentration.

**Physics syllabus:**

- Mechanics
- Fluids
- Heat and Thermodynamics
- Waves and Sound
- Capacitors and Electrostatics
- Magnetics
- Electromagnetic Induction
- Optics and Modern Physics

**Tips:**

1. Though not the most scoring, Mechanics is one topic which forms the major portion of the JEE (ADVANCE) in terms of marks. Hence students should not neglect the subject.

Students should concentrate on the scoring topics such as Optics, Electricity and Magnetism, etc.

Students should concentrate on the scoring topics such as Optics, Electricity and Magnetism, etc.

2. Kinematics and Particle dynamics are very important topics of Mechanics that make regular appearance in the JEE papers.

3. According to the general trends, Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism are the most important topics in terms of the number of questions asked in JEE of previous years.

4. The following is a list of topics which have seen to carry the maximum weightage in the previous JEE Advanced exams:

- Mechanics
- Modern Physics
- Optics
- Electricity and Magnetism
- Measurement and errors (1 question must)
