HC Verma Books: The Holy Grail for IIT Aspirants?
Why use HC Verma Books for JEE Preparation?
Are you planning to appear for JEE 2020? The exams are not as far away as you may think, and every step that you now take will turn out to be crucial; it will decide whether you crack the exam or not.
Cracking JEE Main and Advanced is not just about perseverance and hard work. You also need to think strategically and make the right decisions. The first question you should answer is 'How to choose the right study material for JEE preparation?'
And, when it comes to choosing the right study material for JEE, students often opt for HC Verma books. Some also refer to HC Verma textbooks as the Holy Grail for IIT aspirants. But, is it true? Let’s find out!
Why use HC Verma Books?
HC Verma Physics textbooks are ideal for JEE Main and Advanced preparation. They stand out due to their simple use of language and detailed explanations supported by relevant illustrations. Since JEE predominantly tests the conceptual understanding of students, those referring to HC Verma Physics books will benefit immensely.
Another good thing about HC Verma Physics books is that they come with solutions. The HC Verma Solutions Part 1 covers the Class 11 syllabus. This book is best for chapters like Work and Energy, Rotational Mechanics and Newton’s Laws of Motion. HC Verma Solutions Part 2 covers the Class 12 syllabus. It’s the best book for chapters like Thermodynamics, Magnetic Properties of Matter and Kinetic Theory of Gases.
No doubt Physics books by HC Verma are great for JEE students because they are easy to read and have relatable explanations.
But, is it the be all and end all Physics textbook for JEE preparation?
Why HC Verma Books are not enough?
When it comes to JEE preparation, no textbook is the ultimate authority on a subject. Something as good as the HC Verma Physics textbooks too has disadvantages. HC Verma books do not have enough numerical problems from the JEE point of view. It is good to build your foundation and to gain conceptual clarity, but it does not give JEE students the kind of practice they require to crack the exam.
Also, the book was written for Science students to get a grip on the enigmatic Physics concepts; it wasn’t specifically written for JEE students who need to master concepts through application. So, it does not cater to the specific needs of IIT aspirants.
