Chemistry reference books
Organic Chemistry by Morrison
Objective Chemistry by R.K. Gupta
Physical Chemistry by O.P. Tandon
Concise Inorganic Chemistry by JD Lee
Boyd for Organic Chemistry
40 Days Chemistry for NEET by Sudhanshu Thakur
ABC of Chemistry for Classes 11 and 12 by Modern
Practice books
V.K Jaiswal for Inorganic
