ya i hear there are some mistakes in the solutions manual but from my skim the solutions look good and explained well in the Organic Chemistry 4th Ed  by  Bruice text

I have the 5th edition and there are quite a few mistakes in the text as well.

I'm getting this really awesome book called The Art of Writing Reasonable Organic Reaction Mechanisms, 2nd edition.

I'm just getting it because I want it for my own reading, but I read in other places that graduate students appear to use it for reviewing for their literature exams.



It teaches you to write mechanisms for the sake of them making chemical sense, not blindly memorizing them, which a lot of people tend to do.

That a pretty good book, and it certainly will teach you to avoid a lot of the common, silly errors that you see in mechanisms.  It teaches how to think in terms of mechanisms.

That said, I think it can be a little heavy-handed and absolute on some things where it isn't totally warranted.

Thanks movies I haven't gotten it yet but I ordered it a couple of days ago.  I can't wait though.  Lots to learn.   :P

That reminds me.  This book by Kurti and Czako (two grad students, believe it or not) is probably the best name reactions book out there.  It's chock full of references (both the orginals and subsequent applications) and lots of examples and complete mechanisms.  Really a fantastic resource.

G. Marc Loudon's "Organic Chemistry" is a great book too  ;)

Kitson, Trevor M. 'Organic chemistry: A guide to common themes'
is a good organic chemistry book to all of you!

It gives brief information about carbocation, carboanion and free radical. Also various examples of electrophilic and nucleophilic attack are listed. It is an easily understandable book and suitable for all high school / university student!

all books are very good and same books are very bad. Depends on what you are looking for. so i guess there is no good books nor bad books.
Depends on yourself. so i hate this topics

I used G.A.Taylors book: Organic Chemistry for students of biology and medicine. Good enough for my needs way back when I was a student....
