Quora answer - which books do you recommend for IIT JEE exam?

Having cracked JEE, I think I am eligible to answer this question.
The competition in JEE has reached an altogether new level with the coaching industry booming up and so, it becomes important to make a wise choice of books in order to utilize your time maximally.

I will write about the books I used. Note that I mostly relied on books and self study and so, I literally had a library of books with me. You are definitely not expected to purchase them all.

Physics:

Mathematics
Chemistry

Having said that, you must also solve the Exemplar problems by NCERT. They contain some must solve problems.
You should additionally keep the following on your table

Besides, if you are looking for general preparation guidance, you can have a look at the following:

Additionally, to complete your preparation, you must solve the past year JEE papers:

And finally, to revise the syllabus, you can buy revision packages:
  • Rank Booster-2015 - the most relevant JEE revision package
  • FIITJEE GMP - a challenging package, goes beyond JEE level

If you are not overwhelmed with this list, then that's great!
If you feel overwhelmed, here is something useful for you: Aman's Blog

Note that I have tried to create an exhaustive list. You are not expected to buy them all. However, it is important to solve problems from as many books as possible. On the contrary, its better to read theory from say one or two books or at most three.
I hope this helps you
All the best :)
