This book has been designed for the students preparing for IIT JEE, AIEEE and various other National and Regional Engineering Entrance Examinations such as BITSAT, VITEE, SMU, BVP etc. This book contains questions and solutions of Chemistry asked in various engineering entrance examinations up to 2013. The book has been divided into 2 parts containing 31 Chapters in total. The book has been divided in sync with Class XI and XII NCERT Chemistry Textbooks. The previous years objective questions have been given Chapterwise and Topicwise. Answers to the questions along with their explanations have been given at the end of each chapter. Questions asked in 2012 and 2013 engineering entrances have been given separately at the end of the book to make students aware about the current trend of the examinations.
