Calculus problems are tricky but if you use the correct techniques, you can solve them with considerable ease. Amit M. Agarwal's A Textbook of Integral Calculus for JEE Main & Advanced reflects this very idea and explains difficult concepts in ways easy enough for engineering students to understand. The book, published on June 24, 2013 by Arihant, has been written in keeping with the needs of students prepping up for JEE Main & Advanced and other Engineering Entrance Exams.
This revised edition explains the vital concepts of Integral Calculus and delineates strategies to solve the problems in a step-by-step manner. In fact, it is counted upon as a handy guide for getting a hang of all the key Calculus concepts that students at this level need to know and understand. The topics, covered in a span of four chapters, range from definite and indefinite integral to differential equations. The book aims at doing away with the mystique associated with calculus problems. It explains each of the concepts in a manner, which is simple enough to grasp and engaging at the same time.
Each chapter has a number of "Points to Consider" sections that ensure a better understanding of the intricate concepts. There are Proficiency Exercises given towards the end of each chapter that comprise various types of questions, starting from Single Integer Answer Type to Matching Type to Single Option Correct Type. These exercises help students test their understanding of the concepts learnt, and also incorporate solutions. Each chapter comes with quite a few new kinds of illustrations, which help in spot assessment. On the whole, A Textbook of Integral Calculus for JEE Main & Advanced helps the students get familiar with the pattern of questions asked in the entrance exams.
Amit M. Agarwal's textbook starts off with the basics and gradually works its way towards more difficult concepts, fine-tuning a student's understanding in the process. This 551 page book is available in paperback binding and has ISBN 10 number 9350943964 and ISBN 13 number 9789350943960.
