ALevel chemistry help! Watch
Also I struggle sooooo much on organic chemistry! How can I become better at it?!
Please reccomend me some good revision sources! I do AQA AS chemistry
Anything will help thanks
The key to organic chemistry is having an understanding of what is occurring. It is incredibly difficult to just 'memorise' the mechanism. Watch some youtube videos and undertsand WHY the lone pair is going from one atom to the other, WHY a certain bond is being broken. Once it clicks together you'll be able to draw mechansms without a seconds thought.
Do you have any YouTube videos you reccomend ?
I already use snaprevise and watch E rintoul, if you have any others please tell
Make a mindmap. That's the best way to learn organic, and as for the mechanisms what I do is I draw the orignial reactant and leave some space and draw then final product and then see how it can get there with the reagent used. You're going to have to do lots of questions to get better at organic but mostly it's a visual concept and knowing how things look is the way to go. Good luck!
Mindmaps hurt my brain, can't learn anything with mindmaps but I'll try the mechanisms method !! Thanks
