Students who want to pursue engineering should be thorough with Mathematics. It is a significant subject for engineering since most engineering topics cover mathematical problems. Those preparing for the JEE Main and the JEE Advanced should thoroughly study Maths. They can easily solve Physics and Chemistry numerical problems if they are thorough with Maths.

Students should refer to the JEE syllabus before starting the preparation. They should understand the topics which need more importance. Some topics in Maths are easy while some are difficult. Some topics like binomial theorem, trigonometry, coordinate geometry, etc., have several equations and formulas. Students should learn these formulas and equations thoroughly so that they can easily solve the questions from these topics. In this article, we discuss how to learn Maths for the JEE exam.

Practise Maths Problems

The best way to learn Maths is to practise the problems. Never learn Maths problems by reading. Students should do the problems on paper and learn. This will definitely help them to gain the required speed to solve the problems during the JEE Main exam. Students should keep in mind that practice makes a man perfect. Practising many questions will help students identify mistakes while attempting the JEE Main exam.

Refer to best books

Students can refer to the following books to study maths for the JEE Main and the JEE Advanced.

  • Course in Mathematics for IIT JEE by Tata McGraw Hill publications
  • Problems Plus in IIT Mathematics by A Das Gupta
  • Chapterwise Solved Papers by Arihant
  • Class 11th & Class 12th Mathematics by R.D. Sharma
  • IIT Mathematics by M.L. Khanna

Students should also know the important topics for the JEE preparation. Students can easily score marks in algebra. Sets, relations, and functions, complex numbers, matrices and determinants, progressions, quadratic equations, etc., come under algebra. While considering calculus, students have to learn differential calculus and integral calculus. This is not an easy topic like algebra. It needs thorough understanding and practice to crack questions from calculus. There are many equations which need to be learnt in differentiation and integration. Students can easily solve problems from differentiation and integration by practising and learning the formulas. Probability is another topic on which students can score full marks.


We know that probability refers to the chance of occurrence of an event. When we deal with probability, we come across various types of events in probability. Dependent events, independent events, mutually exclusive events, complementary events, etc are some of them. If the outcome of one event affects the outcome of the other event, then we can say that these events are dependent. Those events which cannot occur at the same time are called mutually exclusive events. For example, we get a head or a tail when a coin is tossed. So getting head and tail cannot happen at the same time.

JEE aspirants are advised to learn the previous years’ JEE questions on probability so that they can understand the pattern and the difficulty level of questions asked from probability. They can also download the PDFs of important formulas on probability. Log on to BYJU’S to learn more about probability and practise JEE questions.
