nice post. I use MIT and you tube.

I also have IIT video material aquired through various means :twisted:.

Looking at the MIT videos one thing is clear the professors know "padhate kaise hain"


Right off the assembly line
Try getting the video lectures of reputed institutes like Motion/Resonance/Bansal. Some don't come out with the videos for obvious reasons. Some have tied up with companies to provide videos like HCL/Motion. Try it out. Even though they are a bit on the expensive side, its a hell lot Cheaper than Kota!! plus they also have Solution videos and AITS and stuff.
