Dear Sir, Please guide me on how to prepare effectively? The books which I have to study NCERT and one to two extra books each in PCM. Other than this, I also have the package from the coaching institute. So please help me how to plan a timetable.

Points to Remember

Revise the most important chapters at least 2-3 times before the JEE.
Revise the important chapters at least 2 times.
Focus on problem solving rather than studying theory.
Give each and every test with 100% preparation, this will revise your portions as well as will increase exam temperament.
Enroll for two test series. This will give you sufficient no of tests to practice for.
Towards the end, do not start any new chapters, try to focus on those chapters in which you are good and make them stronger.
Try to give tests at the actual timings when JEE is going to happen. This exercise will mold your mind to work under pressure at that specific time. This will help you in handling the pressure during actual JEE.
Do not leave any single chapter of most important category.
Do not study one or two subjects out of three excessively. Make a balance between all the three subjects. After all you don’t know which section is going to be easy and which one tough in actual exam.
Attempt any question at least 2-3 times before giving up when you are practicing.
Do not attempt any question more than once in any exam if you’re stuck in that question. Go to other questions and come back if you have time towards the end.
Mathematics will definitely take more time than Physics and Chemistry, so try to wrap up both these chapters in 90 to 110 minutes, so that you have sufficient time for math.
Understand the difference between JEE Mains and JEE Advanced, Mains is just one exam consisting of 30 questions in each subject but advanced is a two paper exam. So you need to have that much seating capacity and mental strength to deal with it. Start doing this by giving advanced mock tests or part tests in two seating’s.

Prepaaring for Jee mains at home is very tough, but not impossible. I requires great discipline to study alone. First you require to make a plan because it is easy to get derailed from the track withut a plan to run on.
First you should make yearly plan. then a monthly plan , and finally a plan of the week, the topics you wish to complete this week. As for the books, you should not buy too many books. Buy one good book for each subject and study it thoroughly. In addition to thee books you may buy one refernce book for each subject too.
Physics: Arihant objective series. Reference: “funamentals of Physics By Resnik Halliday”
Chemistry: NCERT. Reference: “Arihant series”
Mathematics: Ml Khanna, Refernce:”Arihant series”
 Above all always be positive about your preparation. Believe in yourself, in you ability to complete he task.
This is going to be tough, but you can do it.
