Key Steps to Focus on Concepts Building for JEE
Most students dream about studying at IITs but few achieve it and make it a reality. So where does the difference lie? Well, the fact is that having clear concepts and strong fundamental knowledge about the basics of math, chemistry and physics is one of the pre-requisites of clearing IIT JEE. Thus, if you are looking to sit for the exam in 2015, you need to know about the key steps to focus on concept building.
Building your concepts starts from 11th class so don’t ignore NCERT books. But you will need supplementary notes and books when you are preparing from JEE. Read each chapter, don’t stress on solving problems and numericals only. This is one of the mistakes that students make but you will need to balance and develop the theoretical understanding into problem solving analytical skills.
Behind each question is a fundamental basic and with new changes being implemented, the Multiple Choice Question have 4 options with very similar answers, so unless you know about the theory behind the question, it would be difficult to resolve it quickly.
Here are some points to consider when you focus on concept building
Read the chapters. Understand the theories and fundamentals. If you are unable to understand it in the first reading, talk with your subject matter expert and clarify the points that you are unable to grasp.
- Don’t delay asking questions. You might forget it and when you move on, the doubts or points that you didn’t understand can roll over. This can make other concepts become out of your understanding.
- Enroll with self-study JEE program such as Kaysons Education modules that provide video learning and DVDs with lectures of IIT alumni. Going over a recorded classroom lecture is one of the very good methods of ensuring that you revise and understand the concepts before moving onto the next topic (as each topic is interrelated).
- Figure out your weak areas. Make a schedule and read more about those topics and solve questions and take mock tests. It is best to keep working on the topics that you think you have not understood well.
- Online video classes or recorded lectures are an important way to go over the lessons. It gives you a chance to experience the classroom atmosphere without moving a step out of your house. Additionally, 2D and 3D diagrams and animations are used to explain the concepts. Visually seeing the theory come alive can help you learn, understand and comprehend better.
- Revise at least 2 to 3 times before you sit for your exams. Take mock tests. It helps you build speed, logical reasoning and helps you understand the exam pattern better.
Hope these tips and key considerations will help you resolve your queries and assist you in building your fundamental concepts before you start working on complex topics.
