Best books for JEE Main 2019 - Chemistry

While Chemistry is vast, it is also a subject that many students find easy to study on account of the less number of calculations, formulae and more theory. However, it is also considered a tedious subject as it has a large number of theoretical concepts to learn. Divided into organic and inorganic, candidates generally can easily learn as rote learning many times helps as is the case with say the periodic table and the elements therein.
