- Organic Chemistry: Wade is the best Textbook for Organic Chemistry. Before diving into Core of Organic Chemistry, be clear with Isomerism and Reaction Mechanisms. Himanshu Pandey or MS Chouhan, both are useful to cover this subject.
Plan your days. Write a schedule in a diary or use some mobile app’s help. Set goals for the week. You may include hourly deadlines for homework, revision, breaks, exam dates and weekly targets. This will go a long way in your career.

Quality over Quantity:
Instead of just sitting on a chair for hours with books, study smartly. Putting your 100% on mock test paper or mock test series in just one hour is way better than those 4-5 hours.
Take breaks, relax. If you complete your tasks within time reward yourself by playing, or listening online music or surfing social networking websites. This will build your focus.
