How can I reconcile all of the chemical properties, physical properties and peculiar behaviour of metals in inorganic chemistry for the purposes of studying these systematically?
It is very hard to learn all of these for each group.
first of all take one group a day. right whatever you have to learn and then try to identify some relationship. Then reread the material and write down whatever you remember . Now look what you miss. everyday take a new group and do the same. Also write whatever you remember of the previous groups you have learned.
