__ATTENTION!! : If you are here just for books, I’d recommend you go through the ____updated post – ____Physics Book for JAM, JEST & GATE ____along with comprehensive reviews____. This current post has the perspective of a single person, but the above post is written by a number of brilliant people from our community (which also include this author) with different perspectives. The editor highly recommends going through the above post.__

__List of Books used for JAM:__

**: Start with Concepts of Physics by H C Verma (HCV). This one covers almost 70% of mechanics. Use ‘Introduction to mechanics’ by kleppner for new concepts and also for conceptual depth. I used Physics by Resnick, Halliday, and Krane for the Special Theory of Relativity.**

__Mechanics__**: Griffith is very intuitive, has great concepts. Coupled with HCV, this would cover your entire syllabus (Only except parallel AC circuits, I guess. Refer some basic electrical engineering book or refer online)**

__Electromagnetism__**: Griffith teaches the mathematics of Quantum Mechanics well. Use for conceptual understanding of mathematics and wave functions. You can also use ‘Concepts of Modern Physics’ by Arthur Beiser for a brief understanding. You might have to refer online sometimes for particular expressions or stuff, like reflection and transmission coefficients in various potential wells.**

__Quantum Mechanics__**: Use Mary L Boas for all the new stuff, good basic concepts. Use NCERT for 12th level Mathematics**

__Mathematics__**: HCV has the basics. I used applied physics book by kshirsagar and avadhanulu which we used in engg. for diffraction and polarization. I am sure you can find a better book (Ajoy Ghatak’s book is recommended by many).**

__Optics__**: HCV again for the basics. For damped and forced oscillations, superposition of oscillations, use ‘Oscillations and waves’ by H J Pain**

__Waves__**: HCV for basics once again. Heat and Thermodynamics by Robert Dittmann for everything not covered in HCV**

__Thermodynamics__**: Referred to some random notes online. (Kunal, a topper in JAM Physics 2019 recommends Berkeley Physics course on Statistical Mechanics by F Reif)**

__Statistical physics__**: Everything remaining in this topic can be found in ‘Concepts of modern physics’ by Arthur Beiser.**

__Modern Physics__**: Principles of Electronics by V K Mehta.**
