IIT toppers reveal tips for iit JEE preparation

The first and most shocking tip for preparation is that you don’t need coaching to crack JEE. Coaching centres never guarantee that they will make you succeed.

You can go for self study or online teaching or contact your teacher if you have any doubt.

So, the main drawback of coaching is they take so much of your time that you don’t even get time to self study. You will just keep filling yourself with new topics and never get the chance to revise them.

Make your own way to get to your goal. 

Make your own notes but if you don’t have time or you can’t present anything like notes on a sheet of paper, then borrow or purchase some useful notes which will help you to clear your topics.

So, for finding your favorable notes, you have to give full attention to reading one or two chapter notes from these websites. 

When you get your desired website notes, get it printed on sheets and mark important words according to you. Read those notes twice to get them engraved on your mind. Sometimes, the amount of notes on one website is higher than the other, so there is a myth among students that lengthy notes will be more suitable for studying. However, the quality of notes matters too. So, start studying with whatever notes you think are going to help to crack IIT-JEE exams.
