__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.**

Dushyanth EdadasulaBrilliantly written mate✌.

And yeah, as you rightly enlightened us, IIT JAM is indeed a very important exam😇.

Mohammad SaadI wanted to know how you did quantum mechanics just from books without any lectures. QM is reputed as a complicated subject and you were able to do it without any lecture videos of any sort. So can you please elaborate in that matter?

It's almost impossible for me to study a whole subject from books without any lectures at my back.

KishlayJam syllabus is not that vast for quantum mechanics as when one compares to quantum mechanics content in JEST/GATE type exams. Only 4 to 5 topics are new in addition to the 12th standard syllabus…

Unknown"I took up a 2 months physics project", which project was it?

DebashishIs there any mandatory criteria for B Tech Civil Engg graduate to be considered for admission in MSc to must have physics as a subject in at least 4 semesters??
