Tips

  • Balance your studying time for Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. Allocate time for both. Do not skip one of them because you love the other.
  • While theory is easy to understand, equations need a bit of effort to understand. Get the help of a senior or a teacher to understand the basic concepts of Inorganic Chemistry strongly. You could manage on your own for higher levels if you know the basics well.
