Summary Of The Book

This first volume of an adaptation of the Resnick, Halliday and Walker’s “Fundamental of Physics” (8th edition) for IIT-JEE offers a solid understanding of fundamental concepts and helps reader apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving. This volume covers topics on General Physics, Mechanics and Thermal Physics.

The book explains every concept with very relevant examples and problems. Has a lot of questions, especially more than one choice type and integer based questions are worth doing. Book is quite useful but some of the topics are in very concise form, so it is advised that students should refer to other Physics Books too to understand the concepts deeply.The text has been rearranged as per the IIT-JEE syllabus and many small topics have been included in the original chapters to make the coverage more complete. A number of additional problems and solved examples have been included to cover all requirements of IIT-JEE examination. The book offers a unique problem-solving technique: 4C’s (Conceptualize, Classify, Compute and Categorize), which guides students towards stepwise problem-solving. The revised edition contains new end of chapter material containing all question types as per IIT-JEE pattern: Reasoning and Assertion type, Multiple-choice and Problems.
