Default Re: Tips To Crack IIT JAM Exam

Here I am providing some tips to crack the IIT JAM exam which you are looking for.

The applicants can refer NCERT guide for preparation.
The applicants can clear their doubts using online forums.
This consists of many objective type questions and model papers.
applicants should spend time for each subject and cover all the portions.
In the end of each unit completion, the candidate can exercise some tests.
After their complete preparation, they can try out this model paper.
This will help them to know their preparation level and thus they can rectify their mistakes.

The applicants can find lot of question papers and mock tests in online.
They should commence their preparation at the earliest.
By this way, they will get more time to practice mock tests as well they can complete their portions soon.

For your idea , here I am providing the syllabus of IIT JAM Maths Syllabus .
Sequences, Series and Differential Calculus: Sequences and Series of real numbers: Sequences and series of real numbers. Convergent and divergent sequences, bounded and monotone sequences, Convergence criteria for sequences of real numbers, Cauchy sequences, absolute and conditional convergence; Tests of convergence for series of positive terms – comparison test, ratio test, root test, Leibnitz test for convergence of alternating series.

Default Re: Tips To Crack IIT Jam Exam

The Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM) is an admission test to Master of Science (M.Sc.) and other post-graduate science programs at the Indian Institutes of Technology, Indian Institute of Science, and other institutes.

IITs started conducting the JAM in the 2004 - 2005 academic session.

The JAM IIT paper pattern depends on the subjects one chooses to appear for; it is either descriptive or objective.

Subjects offered:

Mathematical Statistics
Computer Applications

IIT JAM Preparation Tips

You have to first make a strict plan to cover up all the chapter (All the chapters should be covered)

Take a standard book which is not so hard or not so easy. Average but most importantly
in the trend

Refer to past question papers

Refer to IIT JAM books

Useful books

Mathematical Methods In The Physical Sciences: Mary L Boas

An Introduction to Mechanics: Kleppner and Kolenkow

Waves and Oscillations: N.K. Bajaj

Introduction to Electrodynamics: David J. Griffiths

Quantum Physics: H.C. Verma

Solid State Physics: S.O. Pilla
