Read and solve HC Verma Physics book for JEE preparation!
If you want can only afford just one book for Physics for your preparation of competitive exams, buy HC Verma. HC Verma Concepts of Physics is the best book for JEE preparation, in terms of reading as well as in terms of solving problems.
An all-includive book in itself, H C Verma’s book is tailored for the students of 10+2 level. Besides covering all the topics related to JEE syllabus, it has a number of solved and unsolved problems for students. Numerical exercises have been designed to aid the understanding of concepts by students.
There are two volumes of the book.
Topics covered in HC Verma Part 1 are:
- Introduction to Physics
- Concepts of Physics and Mathematics

HC Verma is a renowned Nuclear Experimental Physicist and author. With a doctoral degree from IIT Kanour, he worked as a lecturer and reader at the Patna University. His books are ideal for pre-college students as they cover a wide range of topics in an easy-to-understand manner.
The best covered topics in HC Verma Physics books are Mechanics, Electrostatics, Modern Physics, Thermodynamics and Optics. Books by HC Verma cover all the basic concepts of Physics that students preparing for entrance exams need to know about. They also have good illustrations that help to make conceps clear as well as a wide range of problems with varying levels of difficulty.
The only limitation of this HC Verma book is that the theories covered in the book are not well-explained. Also, detailed explanation of questions at the end of each chapter would have made the book better and could be of immense help to students. To some extent, this problem is being addressed online as several websites are offering solution of HC Verma Physics online – for free as well as in paid versions. At Askiitians, you can request for complete Solutions to HC Verma Part 1 and Solutions to HC Verma Part 2 books.
You can also download Concepts of Physics HC Verma pdf online.
