I'm using Bruice's Organic, 5th Edition.

It's a nice book with really good sample problems and 3D renders of molecules.  The only two downsides I'd have to add is some errors in the print (not typographical) and the solutions to many problems, including the end of chapter problems, are completely left out.  You must purchase the solutions manual at a local bookstore to get the answers, which I don't mind because it's nice to have a big nice manual with ALL the answers, but it's a bad way to make extra money off of you.

The classic one is "Spectrometric Identification of Organic Compounds" by Silverstein and Webster.  It's great for NMR, but I haven't used it much for IR.  It goes into a lot of detail on how to look at NMRs and talks about some of the higher level experiments (e.g. 2D NMR) and what they can tell you.

Another good one is "Structure Determination of Organic Compounds" by Pretsh, Buhlmann, and Affolter.  It doesn't have much theory of spectroscopy, but it has tons of reference data, such as where you would expect the 13C signals of an aromatic ring with a CF3 substituent (i.e., trifluorotoluene) and what all the JC-F coupling constants are.

Most sophomore organic textbooks will have a chapter on spectroscopy as well, but they don't usually go in to a much depth.

Well, could you share it with me ?  Thanks

Nobody has mentioned Fleming's Frontier Orbitals and Organic Chemistry, the little black bible when it comes to understanding organic mechanisms.  ???

????????????

translation: these books are not bad, but they are expensive. I can't afford them. Moreover, there are so many online textbooks on organic chemistry. Would even anyone take the time to seriously read through every page in a textbook?

Undergrad we used Ege OC text

Grad:
Adv. OC Part B 4th Ed. Carey/Sunberg
OSD by Silverstein
Use Ege, March, and Carey Part I as refs

If I had to learn the concepts from March, I would have quit on OC

A really good book to build up a background understanding of organic chemical processes is Modern Physical Organic Chemistry by Eric V. Anslyn and Dennis A. Dougherty. http://www.uscibooks.com/anslyn.htm Well worth the effort. The style is clear and explainations are detailed but not excessively so. It covers a lot of the same ground as the Carey and Sunberg books but has replaced their books recently in our Physical Organic Chemistry classes.

I agree.  Excellent book that ought to be the new gold standard for phys. org.

Thankfully the rest of the world might be saved from slogging through Carey & Sundberg!
