A Hot Debate:: Which is better for IIT Preparation in Physics ? I E Irodov or H C Verma

Share with:


It has been a question among many students; which is the best book for preparing for IIT JEE. Many suggest that H C Verma is the best one. A few who had access to I E Irodov’s book says that it is better.

What is your opinion?

Post your opinions as comments to this post. Please be sure that you post your comments after using the two books.

(In my opinion, you should use either only after completing all the problems of NCERT text book and the Resnick and Halidey)

  1. the change in the pattern of the iit jee exam in 2006 reduced the need for irodov in clearing iit jee.before 2006 there were subjective questions in the physics part in which each question took 10-12 minutes to solve and each one was a challenge.each question matched the level of the questions in irodov.
    the change to objective pattern in 2006 reduced the time required for solving each problem to 3-4 minutes.the old pattern had enormous involvement of maths in each question similar to the questions in irodov.
    the present pattern of objective test does not require rigorous practise of questions of irodov level and the objectives and subjectives in HC verma are enough.the stress shifted from high problem solving skills to clear concepts.HC verma being a very good book for concepts in physics became very important.while the importance of irodov came down.
    although in a broader sense a person who loves physics should certainly not limit himself to clearing an exam but should enjoy the thrills of physics which is plenty in irodov.

  2. WELL CERTAINLY SINCE D INCEPTION F THE NEW PATTERN IN THE IIT-JEE QUESTION PAPER(D QUESTIONS BEING OF OBJECTIVE TYPE)…SO IRIDOV IS NOT ,ACTUALLY, NECESSARY FOR D STUDENTS WILLING2CLEAR IIT JEE IN D FUTURE….MEANWHILE FOR TH THEORY PART EVEN HC VERMA IS NOT UP2D MARK…IF U GO THOUGH THE SUBSTANCE CAREFULLY U WUD GET2KNW THAT MUCH F D MATERIAL HAS BEEN DIRECTLY COPIED FROM HALLIDAY-RESNICK…..AND I SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND D LATTER FOR D THEORY…MEANWHILE FOR SOLVING NUMERICALS U CAN HAVE BOOKS BY DC PANDEY….

  3. i think new pattern iit jee by d.c. pandey of arihant is a very nice book to do the ques. bcoz it contains only that problems which requires objective approach and very diff. kinds of problems……
