Inorganic Chemistry is an attempt to explain various phenomenon such as shapes of molecules, facts e.g. pyramidal appearance of NH3 and data i.e. 1070 bond angle of NH3 related to Inorganic molecules (molecules of non-biological origins). It requires thorough understanding and learning of the concepts including various examples along with the memorisation of the facts and certain data as well.
In the JEE exam, the weightage of Inorganic chemistry is about 30-40% be it the mains or the advance exam. Hence it is important to score well in inorganic chemistry to acquire a good rank in the JEE. Also it is a scoring subject as only a few questions i.e. only 10-20% are tedious while all others are essentially covered well in the NCERT textbook. However, an ample question practise is needed to understand the application of the concepts and in depth analysis of the concept. Above all solving a lot of questions helps in memorising the informative well and focus on weak areas.
My work titled “ Problem book: Inorganic Chemistry for JEE” is an attempt to enlighten various aspirants through its deep thought invoking questions and some fact based questions to help them excel in Inorganic Chemistry for the JEE exam. The book essentially covers the entire Jee course and is a compilation of over 2500 questions including all the different types of problems asked in the JEE exam. The book is completely solved to ensure that a student gets the concepts if he or she is not able to solve any particular question.
The book contains a total of 10 chapters and each chapter has two levels of exercises i.e. Level I: targeting the Jee mains exam and the Level II: targeting the Jee advance exam. The questions in the mains based exercise in each chapter are arranged according the various sub-topics to help a candidate analyse and strengthen his or her weak topics. There are numerous questions in the Level – II exercise specifically designed to target the 10-20% tedious questions of the Jee Advance exam. There are certain questions in each chapter containing all the four different options enquiring about different facts or data based information to help one learn and revise the in formative part such as the preparation and uses of various compounds.
Lastly the book also offers certain number of subjective problems in some chapters such as Qualitative Analysis, Coordination compounds and Chemical bonding to induce the habit of writing and eliminate the misconceptions as well. The practise of constant revision and the habit of writing is critical for preparing Inorganic Chemistry and scoring really well in the JEE mains and the advance exam. All the best!
