FIITJEE is one of the most trusted names when it comes to JEE coaching. Every year, it produces a fabulous list of results (33% of successful students in almost every category are claimed to be FIITJEE students). Now, that is a massive number and it definitely raises some questions. Is the material of FIITJEE so good that this happens? Or is the faculty pool of FIITJEE that good? Many of you have asked me about FIITJEE RSM – how is it, how did I use it, and stuff. Bored of answering individual comments about the same thing, I decided to write this article. I hope that this article will be able to clear all of your confusions on this topic.
Firstly, I can say that the material is definitely rock-solid. It has all you need in order to clear JEE well, provided you take this material. However, in no way am I criticising the material of other institutes. As I had taken the Correspondence Course of FIITJEE, I know how good it is and how much it did help me in my preparation. However, the utility of FIITJEE material depends on what subject we are discussing on.
Physics is covered in an awesome way in RSM. All of the required concepts can be found in the theory, as well as in the solved problems. The subjective exercises are a must, and they help clear out a lot of concepts of the chapters. The objective exercises aren’t as tough, but they feature questions that are pretty relevant to the current JEE examination.
Chemistry is good, but there is a difference in the three portions of chemistry. Basically, Physical Chemistry booklets have great theory and a good collection of problems. So, that is a must. Organic Chemistry is decent, the theory is good but the questions (especially the objective exercises) are repetitive. Some objective questions have wrong answers too. However, FIITJEE material is pretty accurate and the error percentage of the answers is pretty low. Inorganic Chemistry is decent too. However, as far as the theory is concerned, it is a bit more than JEE level. Honestly, for Inorganic I would advise everyone to stick to NCERT if JEE is your ultimate aim. However, FIITJEE RSM’s inorganic chemistry theory is useful for Olympiads and such.
Mathematics given in the RSM is honestly of a level that is much higher than that of JEE. My personal experience is that I could not solve all the subjective problems given in RSM. Objective questions were something that I could solve, atleast 80% of them. However, the questions are pretty comprehensive and cover multiple concepts per question. So, on the overall, the question quality is pretty good. However, it will definitely make you sweat from the difficulty.
The quizzes that accompany each chapter are useful and relevant. I would advise you to solve the papers that are given for practice. Also, the Miscellaneous Booklets are a great collection of many practice problems.
So, if you ask me on the overall, it is worth it to buy RSM. I liked it, and it helped me in my preparation. That’s all I have to say about it.
