Books for JEST |AIR-6|Chintan Patel, TIFR Mumbai


Here is a post on Books, lectures, and notes recommendations for JEST physics. [We recommend you also go through this excellent post by Deepamla(AIR 3) on How she cracked JEST]

Electromagnetism: Griffiths Electrodynamics(excellent for problem solving). The book is more than enough for any physics entrance exam.

Quantum mechanics: Again, Griffiths QM is a self-contained book. Book by Prof. Ajoy Ghatak is also nice

Lectures: MIT OCW lectures by Prof. Allan Adams(highly recommend) and Prof. Barton Zweibach.

Statistical physics: Lecture notes by Prof. David Tong. Reif statistical physics is a standard. book

Lectures by Prof. John Preskill are highly recommended.

Classical mechanics: Taylor’s  CM is an excellent book for problem-solving. Landau Lifshitz mechanics is also recommended.

Special Theory of Relativity: I found Rindler’s book on relativity very helpful.

I highly recommend solving problems from this

You can find Problem sets for all subjects in it.

I have also uploaded some PDFs of some amazing problems.
