JEE 2013 The Real Preparation Begins Featured After much confusion, debate and protests, the criteria

a for admission into Engineering Colleges in India are now set. The purpose of this article and the articles that follow it every Friday in this section is to help JEE 2013 aspirants sail through the JEE Main and Advanced, and Class XII Board Examinations. Gyancentral brings you the JEE 2013 preparation series - these articles will guide you each week with different topics of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics that you can cover each week. And anchoring this series will be our JEE expert, Abhishek Chandra, B.Tech, IIT Roorkee.

For admission into NITs and other Regional Engineering Colleges, there will be a unified entrance examination called JEE Main. However, the JEE Main score is not going to be the only criterion for admission. The other criterion for admission will be the Class XII Board Examination marks that will be normalized to make the Board Examination marks of students coming from different Boards (CBSE, ICSE, State Boards) consistent. Each regional college will assign specific weightages to the JEE Main score and Class XII Board Examination marks to prepare its merit list for admission. For example, NITs have decided to assign 60 percent weight-age to the JEE Main score and the balance 40 percent weight-age to Class XII Board Examination marks. For admission into IITs, the procedure is a little different. IITs will screen around 150,000 students on the basis of the JEE Main Score. These shortlisted students will then appear for another examination called JEE Advanced. Before the IITs announce the final rankings for admissions into them, they will carry out another round of screening by eliminating all students who are NOT in the top 20 percentile in their Board Examination results. The JEE Main (offline and online) will be conducted in April 7 and April 8-25, 2013 respectively. It will be similar to the AIEEE in terms of both the pattern and the difficulty level. It is expected to comprise of single choice questions and a couple of "Linked Comprehension Type" questions, etc. The JEE Advanced will be conducted on June 2, 2013 and consist of two papers similar to the ones in IIT-JEE 2012. I know the students who are going to appear for JEE Main and Advanced in 2013 might be apprehensive because they have been forced to be the first adopters of this educational transformation, but trust me it will not be as difficult as it seems to be. My preparatory articles will be written keeping in mind the capabilities of a slightly above-average student who is hardworking. So, if any student is average or below average, you can get in touch with me through Facebook/Twitter and I can work out your special routine. Before we hit the road to preparation, there are a few "Frequently Asked Questions" that I would like to discuss and expect students to be clear about. Q.1. How many hours should I study for and how many hours should I sleep for? Should I study late at night or study early in the morning? Ans. There is no fixed formula for cracking JEE. Few students might take 8 hours to study a topic that another student might complete in just 4 hours. So, the answer depends on the capacity of each student. But on an average, you should study for more than 12 hours.Sleep for not more than 6 hours. Regarding studying late at night or early in the morning, choose whatever time suits you. I used to study late at night because I could not get up early in the morning and I know people who studied early in the morning and were just as good. Q.2. Which books should I follow? Ans. Always remember one thing it is better to work out one book ten times than ten books once. For Physics, you can follow Dr. H. C. Verma's Concepts of Physics Vol. 1 and 2 from BharatiBhawan. For Mathematics, you can follow Prof. K. C. Sinha's entire series (Algebra, Coordinate, Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Vectors & 3-D Geometry, Trigonometry and Probability) from Eduwiser Publishing Group. For Physical Chemistry, you can follow either Dr. R. C. Mukherjee's Physical Chemistry or Dr. P. Bahadur's Numerical Chemistry. For Organic Chemistry, you can follow your Coaching Institute notes and Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd

For Inorganic Chemistry, you can follow NCERT books and Inorganic Chemistry by Prof. J. D. Lee. Q.3. How to approach the new pattern of examination? What changes should I make in my preparation style to succeed in the new JEE Main and Advanced? Ans. Keep your basics clear by following the above books. In addition to that, practise new pattern questions from anywhere you can. I will deal with this question in detail as the series of articles progresses. Q.4. Due to the confusion in the examination pattern, I have not been able to prepare seriously until now. Is it still possible for me to get through JEE Main and Advanced? Ans. If you are one of those students who have not started preparing for the examinations seriously yet, the best you can do at this point of time is to focus all your energies into the preparation. The time that is gone will not return, so do not repent; make the best use of the time that is remaining. It is quite possible for you to crack JEE Main and Advanced. Q.5. I am an average student. Can I get admission into an IIT? Ans. Being average does not guarantee failure in JEE Advanced just like being intelligent does not guarantee success in the same. If you think you are just average, work harder to compensate for your average intelligence. Q.6. I feel I have forgotten everything I studied in Class XI. What should I do now? Ans. You have to keep revising. During the course of my articles, I will allot time for revising your Class XI topics as well. So, do not worry. One last thing - all the Class XI topics as well as a few topics from Class XII are expected to have already been covered by students (at least once on their own). If you have not done so, you can discuss your problems separately with me. For this week, I would suggest you complete all the chapters that you are currently working on so that when we start our schedule from next week, you do not have to leave any unfinished chapter midway. Until next week, all the best! JEE 2013: Preparation week two - how to divide your time and do what? Featured There are still about 26 weeks left for JEE Main and about 34 weeks left for JEE Advanced, and we will try to make the best use of these weeks. While you should not expect to become a Scientist in the chapters you study in the coming weeks but yes, you can expect yourself to qualify the concerned competitive examinations. Abhishek Chandra, Gyancentral's resident JEE expert takes you through week two preparations. Each day has 24 hours and I am going to divide these 24 hours into School time, Coaching Classes time, Sleeping time, Eating, Freshening up and Leisure time, and Self-study time at home. The basic break-up of these times for the weekdays should be: School time: Six hours Coaching Classes time: Two hours Sleeping time: Five hours Eating, Freshening up and Leisure time: Two hours Self-study time at home: Eight hours And for the weekends, the basic break-up of these times should be : School time: Zero hours Coaching Classes time: Two hours Sleeping time: Five hours Eating, Freshening up and Leisure time: Two hours

Self-study time at home: 15 hours The only time that can differ above for students is the Coaching Classes time because some students are enrolled for the weekend classes and have to take classes of six hours each on Saturday and Sunday, while other students are enrolled for a 'four days per week batch' having three hours of classes each day. In either case, the average time for Coaching Classes is 12 14 hours per week. Many students and parents would be worried about the sleeping time. I know the students are going to find it a challenge to just sleep for five hours a day but trust me, this will be difficult only for the first week. From next week onwards, you will be comfortable with five hours of sleep but you have to make sure you keep awake for 19 hours a day for the first week even if you are not able to concentrate properly on studies. Human body and brain will condition themselves to your way of working. When people around you tell you that a minimum of seven hours or eight hours of sleep is essential, tell yourself and them that it is all in the head. So coming back to our case, we will have about 70 hours per week for our self-study at home.For these 70 hours, I am going to keep things light the first week so that you adjust to the new schedule. Following is the plan for this week: MATHEMATICS: The most important topics first, we will hit Coordinates and Straight Lines before anything else. You must have already covered this chapter in Class XI. Do not worry if you think you have forgotten everything. Jump directly to Section II of Eduwiser's Coordinate Geometry by Prof. K. C. Sinha. First go through the "Summary of Results" of the chapter - Coordinates and Straight Lines, after which you should try to SOLVE the worked out examples without looking at their solutions. Also solve all the subjective questions and the new pattern questions based on JEE Main and Advanced.If there are any subjective questions that you are not able to solve by yourself, skip them for the time-being. If there are any new pattern questions in the exercise that you are not able to solve, mark them for attempting them later. Do not ask any of your teachers/friends for solutions to them at this point of time. You should be able to complete the above in 10 hours. Distribute these 10 hours across five days of the week so that you do not get bored. Set aside three hours of time for the last two days to solve only new pattern questions from the course pack that you might have from any of the Coaching Classes. In addition to Coordinates and Straight Lines, start Section II of Circles from the same book. Be thorough with the "Summary of Results" and go through the worked out examples (preferably solving them without looking at their solutions). This should take 8 hours of time that you can distribute across the week as per your convenience. CHEMISTRY: For Physical Chemistry, you can start with Atomic Structurefrom G. R.Bathla's Numerical Chemistry by Prof. P. Bahadur. Try solving the worked out examples but do not panic if you are not able to solve any question; just read through it. Once you are done with it, you should solve the worked out examples of Bharati Bhawan's Physical Chemistry by Dr. R. C. Mukherjee. Allocate a total of nine hours to complete the chapter from the two books. Use another three hours to solve new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes course material. For Organic Chemistry, take not more than four hours to read through and practice Nomenclaturefrom your Coaching Classes course material. PHYSICS: In Physics, you must have already covered Motion in 1-D and 2-D, Newton's Laws of Motion & Friction and Work, Power & Energy. Revise these chapters from Bharati Bhawan's Concepts of Physics Vol. 1 by Dr. H. C. Verma. Pick questions at random to practice but do not skip the questions you found difficult and/or could not solve earlier. Just in case you are unable to solve any question, discuss it with your teacher at your Coaching

Classes or your school right away. Devote four hours to Motion in 1-D and 2-D, 4 hours to Newton's Laws of Motion & Friction and 4 hours to Work, Power & Energy. You can distribute the above among the first five days. You will also have to practice new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes course material for a total of nine hours (three hours each for the three sections mentioned above). The above schedule is only for 58 hours this week instead of 70 hours to give you time to adjust. When we are back next week, I do hope the above topics are covered and you are geared up to take up more each week. Until next week, all the best! WEEK 3 In our JEE expert, Abhishek Chandra's words, "anyone who followed my previous week's schedule must be feeling sleepy." But "do not worry", he adds, "because things will be a lot easier this week with respect to your sleep." We hope you guys have been following the week two regime. Here's week three in your journey to JEE 2013.

Following is the plan for this week: MATHEMATICS: Take four more hours to finish pending portions of Coordinates & Straight Lines and working out solved examples of Circles. These four hours should be allocated in the first two days of the week. This week, you should complete the chapter on Circles. Solve all the subjective questions except the "Prove that" ones. In such questions, notice just the result and do not go about solving them. In the exercise too, you will find a few questions that are similar to the ones you must have already seen in the worked out examples. In such questions, just make the geometrical figure for the question and try to find out the method you would use to solve. Write out the equations and leave it at that. There is no need to fully solve such questions. Why I am asking you to not fully skip such questions is because with a slight change in data, there might be some complications introduced into the same questions. Solve all the new pattern questions from the book. There is no need to solve new pattern questions from any other source unless you have finished the above material on Circles within12 hours that I would earmark for it. This time can be distributed in the remaining 5 days of the week. Go through the "Summary of Results" of Conic Section Parabola (only) from the same book. This will hardly take an hour's time. CHEMISTRY: For Physical Chemistry, you should try to wrap up Atomic Structurefrom G. R. Bathla's Numerical Chemistry by Prof. P. Bahadur, if you have not been able to. Also read through Chemical Bonding from your Coaching Classes course material, NCERT books and any foreign author book. You will face a lot of conceptual issues with this chapter on Chemical Bonding. If you have any doubts, it is advisable to clear them at once, preferably with your teacher. Do not worry much if your problem with the chapter persists, and move on. The above should take away about 14 hours of your time (2 hours for Atomic Structure and 12 hours for Chemical Bonding). Also finish the chapter on Nuclear Chemistry that is very simple and interesting and should take not more than five hours to complete. Solve only the worked out examples from Numerical Chemistry and not the exercise. Give

yourself three hours to practice new pattern questions on this chapter from your Coaching Classes course material. In Organic Chemistry, finish off Hybridization of carbon, sigma and pi bonds, Structural, Geometrical and Optical isomerism, Newman projections, resonance and hyperconjugation, keto-enol tautomerism and determination of empirical and molecular formulae of simple compounds. You can study the above from your Coaching Classes material and from Morrison and Boyd. Take seven hours for it distributed over the first five days of the week. Solve questions on the above topics from your Coaching Classes material and from past 10 years IIT-JEE during the last 2 days of the week. Earmark 4 hours for it. For Inorganic Chemistry, you should finish isolation/preparation and properties of boron, silicon, nitrogen, phosphorus, oxygen, sulphur and halogens from your NCERT book and from your Coaching Classes course material. Allocate not more than 8 hours for it. PHYSICS: This week's target in Physics will be to wrap up Modern Physics. The chapters involved are very simple and scoring. Most of the students keep procrastinating Modern Physics and end up taking Entrance Examinations without any knowledge of it. Go through the worked out examples from H. C. Verma's book and solve each question from the exercise. The load will be less in Physics this week because you would have already covered the same chapters in Physical Chemistry. If you can get hold of a book on Modern Physics by Dr. Anil Verma Patna University, it will be great but even if you cannot (since that book is rare), try solving questions from any possible source. I know that at your Coaching Classes, your teachers might be teaching you Mechanics, Current Electricity and Magnetism, etc. but not Modern Physics and you would first want them to teach you the theory so that you could practice the questions. Remember one thing, you do not need a teacher to study. So start on your own. Set aside 12 hours for your Physics this week. You work on the above topics while I will work on preparing a couple of mock test papers to help you score more at JEE Main and Advanced. Until next week, all the best! IIT JEE 2013: Your week four preparation schedule Featured Week one, two and three went by with some intital preparations for your much awaited and anticipated JEE 2013. Week four is here and our expert Abhishek Chandra is also here with his strategies and plans for the next brand new seven days. "Do not get exhausted. Just be patient and continue slogging your guts out after all, it is just for another seven months," he says. So here's the plan for week four.

MATHEMATICS: As soon as you are done with Circles, start solving worked out examples of Conic Section Parabola. The most complicated questions in Coordinate Geometry are from Conic Section Parabola, Ellipse and Hyperbola. So be thorough with these chapters. Talking about Parabola, do not leave the "Prove that" questions of this chapter because they will help you solve various other questions. It will also help to memorize the results (the relations you are required to prove) of these "Prove that" questions so that you may directly apply these results in other questions. Parabola should eat up about 10 hours of your time. The same kind of preparation strategy applies to Conic Section Ellipse and Conic Section Hyperbola. After going through the "Summary of Results", solve all the worked out examples andexercise questions including the

new pattern questions from Eduwiser's Coordinate Geometry by Prof. K. C. Sinha. You do not need to solve questions from other sources at this point of time. These two chapters will take additional 15 hours to complete. For all the chapters under Conic Section, memorize the equations of tangent, normal, chord of contact, etc. in parametric form. In most of the questions in these chapters, drawing a figure and taking coordinates of points in corresponding parametric form are the first two steps in the right direction. Whatever the case, you will always make the questions simpler if you prefer assuming parametric points on the parabola, ellipse or hyperbola instead of assuming the normal coordinates (x, y) and substituting x and y into the equation of parabola, ellipse or hyperbola. One must also note that you will land up with the same correct answer whether you choose the parametric coordinates or the conventional (x, y); just that with (x, y), you will increase the number of equations by one and the complexity of all theequations. CHEMISTRY : This week in Physical Chemistry, we will aim to complete the following topics from Gaseous and Liquid States Absolute scale of temperature, ideal gas equation; Deviation from ideality, van der Waals equation; Kinetic theory of gases, average, root mean square and most probable velocities and their relation with temperature; Law of partial pressures; Vapor pressure and Diffusion of gases. Complete these topics from Dr. P. Bahadur's Numerical Chemistry by solving the worked out examples only. Also solve only the worked out examples from Dr. R. C. Mukherjee's Physical Chemistry. Do not ponder over your doubts in these topics too much. Ask your teacher/friends to clear your doubts as soon as you have them. This should take about 10 hours of your time. Practice new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes material. This will take another 4 hours.Do not go about looking at worked out examples or exercises with subjective questions in your Coaching Classes material. In Organic Chemistry, finish off the following : Hydrogen bonds: definition and their effects on physical properties of alcohols and carboxylic acids; Inductive and resonance effects on acidity and basicity of organic acids and bases; Polarity and inductive effects in alkyl halides; Reactive intermediates produced during homolytic and heterolytic bond cleavage; Formation, structure and stability of carbocations, carbanions and free radicals. You can again study these topics from your Coaching Classes course material and whatever you do not understand from Morrison and Boyd. There is a book on reaction mechanisms by Prof. Sanyal. This book is rare but if you can get hold of it from somewhere, there is nothing like it. The explanations in this book are terse but useful and there are a variety of reactions discussed. Allot about 10 hours for the above topics. There is no need to solve questions from any study material that you may have. For Inorganic Chemistry, you should finish preparation and properties of the following compounds: Oxides, peroxides, hydroxides, carbonates, bicarbonates, chlorides and sulphates of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium; Boron: diborane, boric acid and borax; Aluminium: alumina, aluminium chloride. You can cover these topics from your NCERT books and your Coaching Classes material in about 6 hours. There is no need to solve questions from anywhere on these topics but do so if you have time. PHYSICS : Finish off pending portion of Modern Physics because the chapters under Modern Physics are important. You could take an hour to do so. After you are done with Modern Physics, start Current Electricity from Prof. H. C. Verma's Concepts of Physics Vol. 2. Go through the worked out examples from it and solve each question from the exercise. Every book has its own method of solving questions. So, do not get bogged down if you are not comfortable using the method Prof. Verma uses in his books. You may come up with yours. One strategy that I found useful in this chapter was assuming current 'i' flowing through the circuit and then dividing into 'i1' and 'i i1'. Go through the entire circuit by different unique paths writing out potential equations to get a set of equations in unknown variables. Solve and get the value of each variable. No matter how complicated the question is, you will always come to the right

answer if you write the equations and solve them correctly. You should be able to finish this chapter in not more than 8 hours. Another 6 hours should be given to solving questions subjective and new pattern questions, from your Coaching Classes course material. This should pack your week with enough work. Until next week, all the best ! IIT JEE 2013: Your week five preparation schedule Featured Four weeks gone by, we do hope you are preparing well for JEE 2013. Week five brings you some more Math, Chemistry and Physics chapters. From Conic section to Competition section; from energetics to Gravitation and Electrostats, this week packs a punch! Our JEE 2013 expert Abhishek Chandra brings you yet another week into your preparation.

MATHEMATICS: Conic Section Parabola, Ellipse and Hyperbola is a huge chapter in terms of volume but is the most important of all chapters in Coordinate Geometry. Maximum number of questions is asked from this topic. So I hope you have not ignored it. Take six additional hours to finish off anything pending in Conic Section. Do not undermine the importance of Coordinate Geometry in your preparations. It is the low risk, high reward section of the JEE. If you are thorough with Coordinate Geometry, chances are high that you will be able to solve all the questions asked from this section in JEE. Once you are done with Conic Section, start off with Eduwiser's Vectors and 3-D Geometry (Eduwiser Publishing Group). Go through the theory part and worked out examples of the chapters Vector Algebra (Ch:1), Dot Product of Two Vectors (Ch:2) and Cross Product of Two Vectors (Ch:3). These chapters are based on +2 Board Examinations and should be very easy to brisk past. This will take about ten hours of your time. After you are done with the above, start the chapter Competition Section. This chapter has a summary of results for previous chapters (which you must be thorough with) and has additional theory for topics like Scalar Triple Product, Reciprocal System of Vectors, etc. specifically for JEE Advanced (not JEE Mains). You must also go through the worked out examples from this chapter thoroughly. Skip "Prove that" questions that are more than a page long but for shorter ones, keep the results to be proved in mind. Solve all the subjective exercise questions except the "Prove that" ones (again, keep their results in mind). Also solve all the new pattern questions except the "Straight Objective Type Questions". This should take another ten hours of your time. CHEMISTRY : In Physical Chemistry, Energetics will be our target for this week. Go through each of the topics First law of Thermodynamics, Internal Energy, Work and Heat, Pressure-Volume work, Enthalpy, Hess' Law, Heat of reaction, fusion and vaporization, Second law of Thermodynamics, Entropy, Free Energy and Criterion of Spontaneity from Dr. P. Bahadur's Numerical Chemistry. The chapter is very simple and short but if you have problems understanding the concepts, ask for help from your teachers at School/Coaching Classes. Try to get hold of Prof. A. K. Ghosh's book on Physical Chemistry from Good Books publishers. This book is available in Patna but I am not sure about availability in other cities because the publisher is a local publisher. Understanding the concepts in this chapter is more important because you will read about the same thermodynamic laws in Physics and then it will get slightly confusing because of the positive and negative signs used in the equations.

Solve worked out examples from both Numerical Chemistry by Dr. P. Pahadur and Physical Chemistry by Dr. R. C. Mukherjee. No need to solve the questions in the exercises from Numerical Chemistry but solve all the exercise questions from Dr. R. C. Mukherjee's book. Also practice new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes material. All of this should take not more than ten hours. For Organic Chemistry, we will finish off Preparation, properties and reactions of alkanes Homologous series, Physical properties (melting points, boiling points, density), Combustion and halogenation, Preparation of alkanes by Wurtz reaction and decarboxylation reactions. You can go through all this from your Coaching Classes course material. One other book that I found useful for the reactions, etc. was Organic Chemistry by Prof. S. Lal that was again from Good Books publishers (so you know where to buy it from). This should take you another ten hours. Practice questions from the book/material you read your theory from, for the time-being. Allot the remaining four hours for the same. You can skip Inorganic Chemistry this week. If you happen to get even an hour free, revise previous week's portion. PHYSICS : In Physics, we will cover Gravitation and Electrostats this week from Prof. H. C. Verma's Concepts of Physics Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 respectively. There are a lot of formulas and results to be memorized in these chapters and I would suggest you write them on flash cards and keep looking at them whenever you get the time. Why I am asking you to complete these two chapters simultaneously is because the concepts in both these chapters are almost the same. The difference comes in the formula constants. The difference also comes in the variables (in Electrostats, you have the charges whereas in Gravitation, you have the masses) but the basic concept is the same. After finishing the theory from Concepts of Physics, go through the worked out examples and solve all the exercise questions. Try solving the Objective I and Objective II questions. You should keep in mind the answers of these objective questions because they help you understand the concepts better. Get rid of any doubts that you have in exercise questions at once. Do not leave it for the future. Also try solving new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes material. This week, Physics will take up about twenty hours of your time. For this week, in all the chapters, if you are not able to solve any question, do not keep it for later. Get your doubts cleared at once. Until next week, all the best ! WEEK 6 While Diwali is the time to light crackers and enjoy the festivities, it not an opportunity to completely abstain from your weekly preparation schedule. IIT JEE being a competitive exam deserves all your focus and attention. So please do get a taste of the sweets and light a few crackers but also shut your windows and get back to studies. Our JEE expert Abhishek Chandra brings you week six preparations. MATHEMATICS : From the same book Eduwiser's Vectors and 3-D Geometry by Prof. K. C. Sinha, work on chapters - Introduction to Three Dimensional Geometry, Angle Between Two Lines, Straight Lines and Plane before working on the Straight Objective Type Questions fromCompetition Section of Vectors portion. The strategy here will almost be the same as that for the Vectors section go through the theory portion of all the chapters and the worked out examples. From the exercises, solve a couple of questions of each type. There is no need to solve each and every

question from the exercises.Whatyou should do while solving questions here, is trying to solve the same questions by Vector method as well. Almost every question in Three Dimensional Coordinate Geometry can be solved using Vector method and vice versa, so keep that in mind. After you are done with the above, switch to the Competition Section of 3-D Geometry. Solve all the worked out examples, including the "Prove that" ones. However, from the exercise of Subjective Type Questions, you can skip "Prove that" questions.Also solve all the new pattern questions (including the Straight Objective Type Questions) from the same book. Once you are done with the above, you should finish the Straight Objective Type Questions of Vectors section. Now, when you are solving questions here, try to solve it using 3-D Geometry method too. Very often, the solution in 3-D Geometry method will be a lot simpler and easier to work upon. This is majorly because 3-D Geometry has tremendous similarities with 2-D Coordinate Geometry that we have already worked on. You have to be thorough with Vectors and 3-D Geometry because these topics are very easy and the questions asked from these topics are fairly simple and scoring. I have come across numerous IIT aspirants who have ignored Vectors and 3-D Geometry and have regretted it later. All the above should take about thirty hours of time. CHEMISTRY: This week's target in Physical Chemistry will be Chemical Equilibrium. This chapter is one of the mediumdifficulty ones in Physical Chemistry and can help you score with slight effort. The topics that you should concentrate on under Chemical Equilibrium are Law of mass action, Equilibrium constant, Le Chatelier's Principle (effect of concentration, temperature and pressure); Significance of DG, DG in Chemical Equilibrium, Solubility Product, common ion effect, pH and buffer solutions; Acids and bases (Bronsted and Lewis concepts); Hydrolysis of salts. Cover these topics from Dr. P. Bahadur's book as well as Dr. R. C. Mukherjee's book. Solve only the worked out examples from Dr. Bahadur's book whereas solve each question from the worked out examples and exercise of Dr. R. C. Mukherjee's book. Also practice new pattern questions of the above topics from Coaching Classes Course material. All doubts from the above topics should be cleared at once with help from your teachers. All of this should take not more than fifteen hours. For Organic Chemistry, we will finish off Preparation, properties and reactions of alkenes and alkynes Physical properties (boiling points, density, dipole moments), Acidity of alkynes; Acid catalyzed hydration of alkenes and alkynes (exclude stereochemistry of addition and elimination); Reactions of alkenes with KMnO4 and ozone; Reduction of alkenes and alkynes, Preparation by elimination reactions; Electrophilic addition reactions of alkenes with X2, HX, HOX and H2O (X = halogen); Addition reactions of alkynes and Metal acetylides, from your Coaching Classes course material/Organic Chemistry by Prof. S. Lal. You should also refer the book on Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd in case you do not understand any of the topics mentioned above. This should take five hours of your time. In Inorganic Chemistry this week, you should finish Ores and minerals of iron, copper, tin, lead, magnesium, aluminium, zinc and silver from your Coaching Classes course material or NCERT books.This should take another five hours of your time. PHYSICS: In Physics, we will cover the chapter on Gauss' Law and its application as well as the chapter on Capacitance from Dr. H. C. Verma's Concepts of Physics Vol. 2. Both the chapters are simple. In fact, the chapter on Capacitance is very similar to the chapter on Current Electricity. Try to draw parallels between the two chapters and you will

notice that the same principles are used on solving questions from both the chapters. Pay special attention to the chapter Capacitance. The base has to be very strong and you should practice hard to make it so. Get your doubts from Gauss' Law resolved at once but do not do this for Capacitance. Try solving the questions yourself. Keep in mind the steps you follow for different types of questions and stick to them. Also try solving new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes material. This week, Physics should take up about fifteen hours of your time. (Some students have written back to me personally saying that they have not joined any Coaching Classes and hence do not have access to their material. In this case, you can either borrow it from your seniors who have already taken admission in some college, or from your friends. If neither works, you can enroll for the correspondence material from FIITJEE, Akash or Prof. K. C. Sinha Classes.) Until next week, all the best! JEE 2013: Your week seven preparation schedule Featured Even as we took you through your week six schedule yesterday, it is essential we present to you the next few set of chapters you need to prepare as we are already running late by a week. So brace up and get ready for some important subjects in Algebra, and allocae close to ten hours for Physic/Chemistry. Our IIT-JEE 2013 expert, Abhishek Chandra gives you the plan. MATHEMATICS : This week, we will cover one of the most important chapters on Algebra Complex Numbers and a bit of Quadratic equations. Refer the book Eduwiser's Algebra by Prof. K. C. Sinha for both the above chapters. Since you have already covered Complex Numbers in Class XI, move straight to Section II. Go through the "Summary of Results" thoroughly. If you find difficulty with any of the concepts in "Summary of Results", refer Section I for explanations. Go throughthe "Worked Out Examples"except those "Prove that" ones that are more than a page long. Solve all the "Worked Out Examples" of New Pattern Questions. Solve each of the subjective questions in exercise (there are just 20 of them). With the Straight Objective Type Questions, try to time your attempts (say 10 questions at one go). This will help build your speed. You will also find "Questions Asked in IIT-JEE" at the end of the book. Try to solve each question yourself independent of the time the questions take. While going through Complex Numbers, try to build some analogy with Coordinate Geometry. This will make things easier when solving questions based on Argand Plane. Always make a figure before you start solving because it will give you a better understanding of the problem. This chapter should take you fifteen hours of time. Once you are done with Complex Numbers, start with Section II of Quadratic Equations. Follow the same strategy as with Complex Numbers. By the end of this week, you should finish "Summary of Results" and "Worked Out Examples" of this chapter. Special attention and time should be given to the concept and problems on "Sign scheme". This will consume seven hours of your time. At any time during the week, you should find about four hours of time to solve questions of Coordinate Geometry and Straight Lines from the practice book- Eduwiser's Mathematics for AIEEE by Prof. K. C. Sinha.This book also has questions asked in various competitive examinations (like IIT-JEE, AIEEE, West Bengal JEE, Orissa JEE, Karnataka CET, Kerala CET, etc.) and one needs to solve these questions to better his/her chances of qualifying JEE Mains. Try to take timed tests of yours with the questions of this book. Many questions have been directly asked from this book in past competitive examinations. CHEMISTRY :

For Physical Chemistry this week, we will keep it light with the following topics Concept of atoms and molecules; Dalton's atomic theory; Mole Concept; Chemical Formulae; Balanced Chemical Equations; Calculations based on mole concept involving common oxidation-reduction, neutralization and displacement reactions; Concentration in terms of mole fraction, molarity, molality and normality. The theory and Worked Out Examples of the above topics can be covered from Dr. A. K. Ghosh's Physical Chemistry from Good Books publishers followed by Worked Out Examples only from Dr. P. Bahadur's book. If you do not have Dr. A. K. Ghosh's book, you can work out questions from Dr. R. C. Mukherjee's book. Try solving new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes course material. Physical Chemistry will take away ten hours of your time this week. For Organic Chemistry, we will wrap up Reactions of Benzene Structure and aromaticity; Electrophilic substitution reactions : halogenation, nitration, sulphonation, Friedel-Crafts alkylation and acylation; Effect of o-, m- and p-directing groups in monosubstituted benzenes.We will also have enough time to finish the following topics from Phenols Acidity; Electrophylic substitution reactions (halogenation, nitration and sulphonation,); Riemer-Tieman reaction and Kolbe reaction. You could again use your Coaching Classes course material for the above or Prof. S. Lal's Organic Chemistry from Good Books publishers. You should refer Organic Chemistry by Finar or Morrison and Boyd for any concept that you do not understand. There is another book - Solution to Morrison and Boyd. This book is very useful to have as it has solutions to questions that are there in Morrison and Boyd. Organic Chemistry should take about ten hours of your time this week. In Inorganic Chemistry this week, you should finish Extractive Metallurgy Chemical principles and reactions only (industrial details excluded); Carbon reduction method (iron and tin); Self-reduction method (copper and lead); Electrolytic reduction method (magnesium and aluminium) and Cyanide process (silver and gold) from your Coaching Classes course material or NCERT books.This should take another eight hours of your time. PHYSICS : This week, cover the topic Heating Effect of Current from the chapter Thermal and Chemical Effects of Electric Current from Dr. H. C. Verma's Concepts of Physics Vol. 2. You do not need to read through or solve questions from portions other than Heating Effect from the same chapter. This should hardly take four hours of your time. Start the chapter on Magnetic Field from the same book. Give enough time for the theory portion because once you are clear with the theory part, solving any kind of question from this chapter will be a cake walk. You have to clear all your doubts in the theory of this chapter at once. Read through the "Worked Out Examples" instead of solving them. You need to solve each question of the exercise. If there is any question you cannot solve from the exercise, give it another try after we finish the chapter on Electromagnetic Induction in future.At this point of time, you need not worry about solving new pattern questions of this chapter from any source. This chapter will take about twelve hours of your time. I do hope you are keeping pace with the schedule I am giving.Until next week, all the best! IIT-JEE 2013: Your preparation schedule for week eight Featured We hope a little voluntary irregularity on our weekly preparation articles gave you some time to clear your backlog of previous weeks' work. Time to get back to the tight schedule and prepare to your fullest. Following is the plan for this week. Gyancentral's JEE expert Abhishek Chandra brings you the preparation schedule for week eight. Read. Take notice. Prepare.

MATHEMATICS:

Since we have already finished theory and Worked Out Examples of the chapter Quadratic Equations, we will finish the exercises of the same chapter from the book Eduwiser's Algebra by Prof. K. C. Sinha. (The Prof. K. C. Sinha series by Eduwiser Publishing Group is ow available on www.flipkart.com). You need to solve each question. Try not asking for help until the last day of this week. However, if you are unable to solve any question by the end of this week, you should ask for help at your school/coaching classes. Once you are done with the exercises of the book, try solving only new pattern questions from any Coaching Classes material. You do not need to go through subjective questions from sources other than your textbook. Also solve questions of the same chapter from Eduwiser's Mathematics for AIEEE by taking timed tests as you did with the chapter on Complex Numbers. This should take about fifteen hours of your time in all. After you are done with Quadratic Equations, allocate time for the chapter on Matrices from the same book. Be thorough with the theory portion because one that is clear, solving problems will be very easy. Also try to solve Worked Out Examples from the same book. This should take about six hours of your time. CHEMISTRY: In Physical Chemistry, we will cover the following topics of Solid State : Classification of solids, crystalline state, seven crystal systems (cell parameters a, b, c, , , ), close packed structure of solids (cubic), packing in fcc, bcc and hcp lattices; Nearest neighbours, ionic radii, simple ionic compounds, point defects. Do not bother too much about this chapter if you are finding it very difficult. As a general feedback that I have received from students about this chapter, it is a boring one and students normally leave this chapter. However, it will not harm to go through this chapter once so that, in case a simple question is asked from this chapter, you do not get stumped. You could refer your Coaching Classes notes as well as any foreign author book for this purpose. Clarify your doubts as soon as you have them. Try to work out new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes material as well as questions that have been asked in previous years' IIT-JEE and AIEEE.All this should consume about ten hours of your time. For Organic Chemistry, cover the following topics of Phenols :Acidity, electrophilic substitution reactions (halogenation, nitration and sulphonation); Reimer-Tieman reaction, Kolbe reaction. After you are done with this, you can cover characteristic reactions of the following : Alkyl halides: rearrangement reactions of alkyl carbocation, Grignard reactions, nucleophilic substitution reactions; Alcohols: esterification, dehydration and oxidation, reaction with sodium, phosphorus halides, ZnCl2/concentrated HCl, conversion of alcohols into aldehydes and ketones; Ethers:Preparation by Williamson's Synthesis. Study the above from your Coaching Classes course material or Prof. S. Lal's Organic Chemistry from Good Books publishers. You should again refer Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd for any concept that you do not understand. Remember one thing with the above topics : you should memorize all the reactions and should be able to close your notes/books and still be able to recall all the reactions. You could try revising the reactions while traveling or while in your school whenever you get some free time. Organic Chemistry will take eleven hours of your time. In Inorganic Chemistry this week, you can cover Principles of qualitative analysis: Groups I to V (only Ag+, Hg2+, Cu2+, Pb2+, Bi3+, Fe3+, Cr3+, Al3+, Ca2+, Ba2+, Zn2+, Mn2+ and Mg2+); Nitrate, halides (excluding fluoride), sulphate and sulphidefrom your Coaching Classes course material or NCERT books.This should take another eight hours of your time.

PHYSICS: In Physics, you must have already started the chapter on Magnetic Field. You should finish Biot-Savart's law and Ampere's law; Magnetic field near a current-carrying straight wire, along the axis of a circular coil and inside a long straight solenoid; Force on a moving charge and on a current-carrying wire in a uniform magnetic field from Dr. H. C. Verma's Concepts of Physics Vol. 2. Also finish Magnetic moment of a current loop; Effect of a uniform magnetic field on a current loop; Moving coil galvanometer, voltmeter, ammeter and their conversions from the same book. Pay attention to the theory of the above topics because it can make or break things for you. Any doubt in the theory should be clarified at once without any delay and before solving questions. You will have to solve each question from the book. You will also need to try out new pattern questions from your Coaching Classes material. If you are not able to solve any question, you can try it again next week by yourself. Physics will take about twenty hours of your time this week. Until next week, all the best!
