Chemistry as an Optional, guidance required.

Hi all,
I am planning to appear in 2017 and chemistry as an optional, I can't move to Delhi as I had heard about DIAS.
I have prepared for chemistry during IIT-JEE thoroughly, I do sustain some sound knowledge I gained during my coaching in Kota. Please tell are those notes beneficial as topics are covered into them with lot's of tough questions as well, or do I need to develop a different approach to study.

  • abhijeetagrawal.blogspot.com in case you havn't seen it.
  • Notes and jee materials are available in the market. But if you want to develop basic concept (required to solve most organic transformations and problems ), the following books might help:
    1) Organic Chemistry by I.L.Finar (selected chapters, from alkane to aromatic compounds i.e upto chapter 27).
    2) Organic chemistry by R.O.C Norman & Coxon ( chapters on elemination, oxidation, reduction etc).
