by Editor - Friday, 24 July 2009, 06:33 PM
There has been innumerable efforts done by some people to promote the growth of science in India either by helping the aspiring candidates or by giving lectures . But they have hardly got their share of credit . So as a leading Science Portal , We decided to highlight such people on this portal through Interview . In this series , we bring you before interview of Aditya , who has been constantly helping out guys in Chemistry through his google group . In an email interview he answered some of the common queries of NET Students in Chemistry .
Here is the complete interview :
Aditya , Lecturer in Chemistry , Warangal
Aditya , Tell us more about you ?
Aditya : I am working as a chemistry lecturer in Vagdevi junior college,
Warangal, A.P. I teach mostly for intermediate students. In leisure times, I
used to prepare study material in topics related to chemistry.

How did you personally prepare for CSIR-NET in Chemistry ?
Aditya :I qualified for this exam immediately after the completion of my
M.Sc. I read many books during my study and I had solved some of previous yearGATE question papers before the examination. And I found - the best way to crack any exam is to solve the previous year question papers in a LOGICAL
way. I too got 93 percentile in GATE exam just by following this simple technique.

What are the books that you suggest for Preparation ?
Aditya : There is a big list. Following are some of the books I can recall.
For organic chemistry
1) Carey and sundberg 4th edition with solution manual
2) Carey and sundberg - Advanced organic chemistry both part A and B
3) Bruice organic chemistry
4) Jerry march - oraganic chemistry
5) Spectroscopy by Silverstein
6) Spectroscopy by Kemp
7) Clayden organic chemistry
8) Mukherjji and Singh - for reaction mechanism
9) Carruthers organic synthesis
10) House organic synthesis
11) Photochemistry by Coyle
12) Eliel stereochemistry
13) Finar organic vol 1 and 2

For Inorganic chemistry
1) Huheey
2) Cotton and wilkinson
3) Meissler
4) Housecroft
5) Robert R. Chrichton for bioinorganic
6) Instant notes - by Cox
7) Greenwood Earnshaw
8) Organometallics by Crabtree

For Physical chemistry
1) Maron and Prutton
2) Atkins with solution manual
3) Mortimer
4) Glasston thermodynamics
5) Banwell spectroscopy
6) Moore solidstate chemistry

What are the important & hot topics from examination point of view ?
Aditya :In chemistry, there are three areas viz., organic, inorganic and physical among which you can choose your area of interest.

What is the pattern & structure of CSIR-NET in Chemical Science ? How
has been the pattern changing ?
Aditya : Previously there were three papers. But nowadays one has to attempt two papers. First paper consists of two parts- A and B. Part A is common for every onea dn the questions are from general science. Part-B is in chemical sciences. Second paper is at advanced level and descriptive .

Which are the important Research Institutes for Chemical Science ?
Aditya : I.I.Sc - Bangalore; NCL - pune; IICT - Hyderabad; Central University of Hyderabad; IIT's and there are so many regional laboratories

How is the level of Competition in CSIR-NET?
Aditya : It requires strong passion for the subject and ability to solve the problems by using the knowledge acquired at M.Sc level.

When did you start your chemistry google forum ?
Aditya: I started the group in September last year.

Now NET is compulsory , how do you personally feel about it ?
Aditya : I think this will help in improving the standards of future teachers and scientists. But I feel NET examination pattern should also be changed a bit like GATE examination.

Finally,Knowledge is light. Marks, grades, ranks etc., are shadows. Just move towards light and shadows will follow you.

Thanks a lot Aditya for this interview . Trajectos are invited to post their query.

I feel a thorough reading of 10+2 standard NCERT books is sufficient.
