To prepare for IIT JEE, knowledge of the syllabus and marking scheme is a must. Apart from this, candidates also seek the best books to prepare from. For Mathematics, it is important that the candidates know the best books that cover the important problems that are asked in examinations like the IITs. One must understand that it is not at all a good idea to refer too many books while preparing. Stick to one book and look at other books only when you need help on a specific topic. To know which book to refer for which topic, read author’s introduction. The area of his or her expertise and interest areas are good pointers to topics which will best be covered by the book written by the author. Considering these factors we have listed down the best books to prepare for JEE Main / Advanced 2019 Mathematics.

For mathematics, make sure all the problems from NCERT is covered first, then move to other reference books. NCERT will help cover the basics and the reference books will help you with their applications.

Best books to prepare for JEE Main / Advanced 2019 Mathematics

There are many free study materials available for sure, but having a good book for yourself that matches your comfort level is a plus point. Select books for Mathematics, that have examples and ample amount of problems with explanations. This will help you understand the problems and how to solve them in the most efficient way.

Below is the list of books that have been curated on the basis of all the above-mentioned factors. These books have been the favourites of the IITians and are most preferred.

Important Chapters for IIT JEE 2019 Mathematics

There is a fair distribution of topics in Mathematics section in JEE Mains. There is almost one question from each chapter. So it is a wise thing to do to study all chapters with equal diligence. But there are few important chapters that will require your most input while preparation of IIT JEE.

  • Definite Integral & Area Under the Curve
  • Trigonometric Ratio & Functions
  • Limits, Continuity & Differentiability
  • Properties of Triangle
  • Functions
  • Permutation & Combination
  • Application of Derivatives
  • Indefinite Integral
  • Conic Sections
  • Complex Number
  • Quadratic Equation
  • Binomial Theorem & M. I.

Get chapter wise marks distribution

Keep in mind the above list are the chapters which require most of your input. In IIT JEE, there are around 15 chapters included in Mathematics Syllabus and unlike Chemistry or Physics, there is nothing called less important or very important in mathematics as most of the chapters are interlinked. Therefore you can’t skip any particular section to focus more on any other section.

Mathematics is the foundation of complex engineering calculations. In JEE exams, most of the questions asked in Mathematics section are generally based on the formulas and their applications.
