### Memory Maps for IIT JEE Physics - Mental Map

Memory is map linking one concept to another concept. Mind map or mental map helps in your memorizing things.

### Study Plan - Study Guide

I am posting a study plan for each of the chapter. The plan is of 20 days in which first 10 days is for study of the lesson and next 10 days is for revision and solving problems. A candidate must be able to master the chapter in these 20 days by solving every question and problem in the HC Verma text book. By taking a target of 3 chapters in each month for the detailed study 10 days each chapter, candidates can complete each text or one year's portion during the period May to December.

Click on the label HC Verma Study Guide for the plan of various chapters. I completed posting for many chapters of Book 1 and plan to complete for the required number of chapters by May 1.
