Physics tutor for IIT JEE, 3 yrs online teaching experience
Halliday is a very nice book and very authentic concept. This book really explains the basics behind the every phenomena, how it started, how it processed etc. If you have any kind of doubt which you are feeling like not understood in spite of all derivation and concepts you have gone through, then you must refer Haliday in that case. Trust me you get confidence like any thing. But in todays scenario where problem practice is must for clearing the exam, Halliday is not that much effective. Remember one thing, it is a Physics book not an IITJEE book, so if you want to learn Physics, you definitely refer this book, but for IIT JEE preparation I would not suggest to refer this book.

Halliday Resnick Walker is better for theory. I have rarely seen people using it for questions. However, not all chapters in Resnick Halliday is useful from IIT-JEE perspective. You need to use it smartly and use it only for such topics and in such depth as required for IIT-JEE. From questions perspective, I found Arihant MCQ for Physics very helpful.
