1. NCERT Maths books: You will find some of the jee main questions directly or with changed data from NCERT. So you must solve all the questions in example, exercise and additional exercise without exception. Most of the students solve NCERT only once. But for JEE Main preparation you can mark some questions which you feel tricky and solve while revising for JEE.
