In organic chemistry, everything is based around C, H, O and N. Therefore to understand reactivity (somehow), there is just limited number of options.
In contrast, inorganic chemistry deals with the rest of periodic table, and each of the elements has its special properties. But there are general trends as well, but are more difficult to decipher and are often expressed by set of typical reactions, you should learn.
Usually they concern the stability of (oxidation) states, how to go from less stable to more stable one to obtain the desired compound and few processes how tho achieve the least stable state from the one found in nature.
It is difficult to state some simple rules, but there are several most typical anions and cations, and the chemistry of given element is just interactions with them. During the learning it helped me to have "all" the reactions (several hundreds) on a paper and for each one try to understand what happens and if there are others in the set, which are similar, and why. This helps you to spot the similarities. And - it is better to have more reactions then less, because then you have higher probability to spot the trends.
