Morrison Boyd : Organic Chemistry

Well, Organic Chemistry has a certain beauty to it, from an exam point of view. The beauty is that although questions framed from it are quite easy, we are not able to solve it at times. Some things remain vague, and perhaps for a reason. After all, organic chemistry is not like other subject where you can study for a month and excel in it.

It requires proper study, coupled with the correct books. One of them is,

The best-covered topics covered in Morrison Organic Chemistry book are Molecular Structure and Properties and Principles of Organic Chemistry. The book helps the students to understand the role of molecular structure in understanding the basics of oganic chemistry.

Highly recommended for preparation of Organic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry book by Morrison and Boyd is quite good for JEE preparation and preparation of medical entrance exams.


The best thing about the book is that it turns even the dry and arcane chapters into something that is easily understandable. The way of writing makes chapters very interesting.
