Let me not beat around the bush but instead come to the point. Inorganic Chemistry is one of the most scoring topics in the JEE exam. It is said, if you’ll invest time in it, it will give you time in return in the exam. That means you can answer the questions quickly.
- Learn by writing a lot. Use NCERT book.
You can also refer to books like-
- Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J.D Lee (especially for the theory part)
- Inorganic Chemistry by O.P. Tandon (Read topics that are only related to JEE syllabus and leave other topics.)
- Don’t forget, inorganic Chemistry needs a lot of time and revision.
- Try to stick to the syllabus only.
All the Best!!!
Acing an exam largely boils down to whether you had planned the schedule in the right way. Determining your approach is as crucial as the process of actually studying. The chapters for JEE are mentioned in a decreasing priority order, which means the ones at the top have the highest priority and priority level decreases as you go through the list.
One must understand that it’s very important to read as much as possible in order to learn chemistry. Also, revision is crucial as there’s a possibility of forgetting things. Take chemistry as seriously as mathematics and physics. Do not ignore this subject just because you feel chemistry is purely “cramming.”
Weight is nearly equally distributed in the three streams of chemistry. It is important not to skip any topic from Inorganic Chemistry as the subject is highly scoring.
All of Inorganic Chemistry is on equal footing. No chapter can be considered ‘Unimportant.’
There are a large number of compounds, and you are expected to know about them (methods of preparation, chemical reactions, uses, etc.). So, it’s a good idea to not divert much from the syllabus.
Many questions of inorganic chemistry are asked from p-block elements, and it becomes important to understand this chapter rather than just cramming it. A good knowledge of periodic table and the trends in the properties of atoms (ionization potential, atomic radius, electronegativity, electron affinity, the electrode potential) will help you to understand the reactions.
