Chemistry in Everyday Life
Steps to retain the concepts (Sequence of events, as suggested by toppers)
- Start With IITianAcademy Concept Notes.
- Read and understand the chapter from NCERT
- Try to derive the equation and understand the logic behind it
- Now read the same chapter from the reference book
- Start solving the relevant questions
- Solve Quizes. Theses are exactly as per questions asked in Exam. You might get many direct concepts from here in actual exam. These will also help you to improve speed and accuracy.
- Get connected to expert through Virtual classes and online chat
Best books for NEET Chemistry
To begin your preparation, start with the NCERT books. NEET preparation is incomplete without the NCERT books. NCERT books are to the point and will help you make notes.
- NCERT Chemistry textbooks for Class XI
- NCERT Chemistry textbooks for Class XII
- Modern’s ABC of Chemistry for Class XI
- Modern’s ABC of Chemistry for Class XII
After completing the NEET books given above, you can start solving the question papers from the previous years. Once the basics are covered and you know what is what, you can start with the more complex reference books. The question paper has questions of various difficulty levels. Some of them require a deeper knowledge of the topic, which is where the reference books come to the rescue. Some of expert and topper suggested reference books for Chemistry are:
- Physical Chemistry by O P Tandon
- ABC of Chemistry for Classes 11 and 12 by Modern
- Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J D Lee
- Dinesh Chemistry Guide
- Practise books by V K Jaiswal (Inorganic), M S Chauhan (Organic) and N Awasthi (Physical)
- Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd for Organic Chemistry
- Elementary Problems in Organic Chemistry for NEET/AIIMS by M S Chauhan
- Modern Approach to Chemical Calculations by R C Mukherjee
