JEE Revision Notes for Chemistry, Math and Physics

JEE Revision Notes for Chemistry, Math and Physics

Completing syllabus counts only when you are able to remember and recall things that you studied. Aspirants study the entire syllabus in a span of one or two years, so remembering things becomes tougher. Also, the books that one studies during preparation are plenty and reading each one again to review concepts at the end isn’t possible. The best solution to all these problems is well-organized notes made along with the ongoing preparation from various books. Making JEE revision notes is very important since they help you in preparing smoothly for the exam.

How to make the best JEE revision notes?

The best way to prepare JEE revision notes for yourself is to make them simultaneously while you are studying the topic from some book. Making notes or highlighting things in the book itself isn’t very wise as during review, you would again pick up and turn the entire book.

Make a separate notebook for each subject and note down anything you feel is important, or you might forget, or is interesting. Once you note down things, you will be able to learn them in a better way and also, you will be able to make material for last minute review. You can devise short tricks for remembering things during preparation and note them too.

Make well-organized notes so that you can read through them easily during revision. These notes will be especially helpful in topics of Inorganic Chemistry. For numerical and formula based portions, you should note down formulas and even tricks for learning them so your own formula book is created once you are done with all the topics.

Also, try making charts or maps as notes for lengthy topics so that you can recall things very easily. These memory maps are best for reactions in Inorganic Chemistry as by seeing a small chart, you will be able to understand and review everything. Moreover, charts are easy to remember too.

These were the tips to make JEE revision notes and it will benefit you in the long run. Another big question in the minds of aspirants is whether to prefer self-made notes or pick up notes from various available sources. Here is a discussion of the same!

Which one to prefer: self-made notes or copied notes?

In my opinion, self-made JEE revision notes are always a better choice since you will always best understand what you wrote yourself. Also, while you are making them, you will be grasping things easily. The tips and tricks that you devise for yourself can only be present in your notes, so personalization in this case helps.

In case you feel that making notes takes away a lot of time and you are unable to do it, then the solution for you is picking up notes from various available sources. But you should customize the notes taken from elsewhere.

A better idea would be to sit with these pre-made notes while you are preparing and add all that is missing in them. You can add to them any tips that you think of and make them perfect for you. If you are ready to do that, then you can go for pre-made notes. Else, if you wish to save time that would go in looking for the best notes, then go for self-made notes.

Either way, JEE revision notes are crucial and you should have them for a better revision towards the end.

Various sources of JEE revision notes

You can find formula booklets consisting of memory maps, formulas and concise notes by various coaching institutes. These booklets are a part of their study material. Resonance Institute provides one of the best formula booklets called the ‘Ready Reckoner’.

There are many websites that provide JEE revision notes. Here is a list of the sites that provide good JEE revision notes:

The above websites provide free notes mostly and a few portions might be paid. You can get these and customize them according to your needs. Also, there are a few formula booklets by various publications and you might opt for them too.

Some tips for making JEE revision notes

Making notes is important as flipping through the books during the last days before the exam would make you panic. During these days, seeing the notes and remembering everything at once would give you confidence.

Memory maps fix the entire picture in your brain and these pictures are always easy to memorize. Don’t go for very elaborate notes. Don’t use excessive decoration or change pens while making them. They should be simple and easy to read.

You might add some specific questions in your notes whenever you find a question which is very conceptual and good. Don’t simply copy-paste things from the books. Try reading through the book and understanding each concept, and then finally noting it down in simple language.

Every time you revise a topic you can make a more concise form of the notes. So that by the end of several rounds of revision you are left with a mini review sheet for each topic, which will be even better.

Keep your notes to yourself and use them to the best of your ability. Don’t let your effort go waste by forgetting what you studied. Hence, make proper notes and revise things from time to time using them. Just remember they need to be clear, concise and concept based!
