The above analysis is for JEE Main Online Paper -1, and the total number of questions indicated are 30. The topics indicated with a hyphen in the number of questions column means that there were no questions asked in the paper but questions were asked and will be asked about those topics as well.
Further, it has been recommended that NCERT textbooks & Exemplar and previous years’ JEE objective type question (single option) for JEE Main 2019 Mathematics Preparation are very important. Some of the important books include - NCERT textbook and Exemplar, Co-ordinate geometry and trigonometry- S L Loney, Calculus – I.A, Maron, Algebra- Hall & Knight Bernard- child and Previous year IIT-JEE question bank.
