About the Book :
Irodovs problems are recognized as the essential preparation for IIT-JEE because they test the concept grasp of students. They are thought to be the trickiest and the most comprehensive set of problems the world over. Some problems combine multiple concepts of physics, which makes them unique. Solutions to I.E. IRODOVS problems in General Physics, available in two volumes, are meant for those dedicated physics students who face the challenge of solving numerical problems, particularly IIT-JEE aspirants. The two volumes provide complete solutions for each of the 1878 problems in I.E. IRODOVs original question book, along with final answers. The second volume contains solutions related to the following topics: oscillations and waves, optics and atomic, nuclear physics.
About the Author :
Mr. Abhay Kumar Singh is the Founder and Director of Abhays IIT Physics Teaching Centre, Patna, and has had a teaching career spanning nearly two decades. His specialty is physics concepts and problem-solving, which are the two most essential parts of preparation for an IIT-JEE aspirant. The author has tried to fulfill the requirements of the aspirants, while keeping in mind the latest trends and patterns of competitive examinations.
Interesting Facts :
It is the only one of its kind, because no other book offers solutions to all of Irodovs problems (826)The nearest competitor, by D B Singh, has missed many problems. Further, experts find that solutions given in this book are tedious, and Abhay Kumar Singhs solutions are crisper.The third edition builds on the success of earlier editions in terms of sales and the accuracy of solutions.The author is respected and experienced. His name is synonymous with Irodov solutions among IIT-JEE aspirants.The figures are better in quality because they are digitally-printed. The earlier editions had hand-drawn figures.The shortcomings of the previous editions have now been eliminated.Irodovs problems are the most exhaustive test of a students understanding of concepts, because they sometimes use more than 1 or 2 concepts in the same problem, which is not the case with ordinary numerical problems.
