This prepares students not only with the concepts but also with the application of those concepts in questions.
Problems in General Physics
Written by I.E Irodov, ‘Problems in General Physics’ is intended to explain some important topics of physical science such as mechanics, thermodynamics, waves, oscillations, optics, molecular physics, electrodynamics, and nuclear physics. I.E Irodov is the professor of General Physics and has many journals and other literary works to his credit. He has explained all the concepts in the book with the help of problems as the book contains around 2000 problems from the said topics. The complicated problems have been provided with solutions for a better understanding of the students.

Solving these papers helps in the last-minute revision required a week before the exam.
A Collection of Questions and Problems in Physics
Authored by L.A Sena, the book is a collection of questions and problems, which are helpful for students in preparing for JEE Mains and advanced. Solving papers prepares students to understand and cope with exam anxiety. Also solving questions and problems develop practical skills in students. It is a self-instruction book for students which means they can understand each problem without any external explanation from a teacher.
