    This document has every single organic reaction in the A-level syllabus–AS and A2 both. I have AS in there too because it is assumed that you know all the AS reactions as well when you’re in A2. They’re also organised by reaction type: nucleophillic addition, electrophillic substitution, etc. Last year as I was revising Organic chemistry, for my A-level exams, I realised that there were no all-inclusive and precise notes, so I made my own. It was a blessing each time I needed to check up on a reaction while doing past papers. I didn’t have to tediously flick through the entire book as I had my trusty organised organic notes. That alliteration… Coming back to topic, you can also use these notes to learn all the reactions very quickly. I doubt it will take more than a week if you really go hard at it; and this is talking about something that would otherwise take a month, at the least. As a bonus I also threw in all the chemical colours you need to know. Disclaimer: I don’t have the prettiest of writings.

    Hey thanks for sharing your awesome notes .

    I myself did struggle quite a bit with organic chemistry but I got through it with this: http://owlcove.sg/notes/the-wtf-a-le...-in-two-charts. The mind-map is a good way to imagine the links between different functional groups.

    I also found these notes very useful (they are made specifically for CIE specs):
