*Lines of Appreciation (Why you should buy this Book)

At the end of the book you will find a glossary and index to make the students understood  in better way.

Almost all the topics of organic chemistry are covered quite well and this book smoke the other books because the way it explains Stereochemistry.

Most of the students find it difficult to understand the relation between Structure, Reactivity and Mechanism etc. Organic chemistry by Solomons is the best piece of resource to understand these things.

On the other hand if we compare other organic chemistry book none of them have reached up to 10th edition.

*Scope of Improvement (Why you should keep away from this Book)

Personally I didn’t find any scope of improvement but I did research in order to find any cons regarding Organic Chemistry by Solomons and get to know about some silly excuses (I think) which confuse students.

The book is expensive than the other Organic Chemistry Books in the market.
(I mean seriously, do you really think you should negotiate with the money and your education? Students are ready to purchase a phone of worth Rs 10-20K in order to look good but hesitate in purchasing book which can help them to shape their future.)

Text Font Are Small which doesn’t make the book Appealing
(We all like Comic Book but does they really help us to build out future? I think No! So don’t think about the colour, texture, font of a book what it matters is the knowledge it has.)

Person Review: – When I was preparing for JEE Exam I and my friend went to our chemistry teacher to know about the best Organic Chemistry Books for IIT JEE Preparation. Sir suggested us to prepare from “Organic Chemistry by Solomon Tenth edition “.

I didn’t purchase the book because (frankly speaking) I didn’t like the font of text used in the book. I thought that the book doesn’t seem to be appealing so how can I study from this book.

But my friend bought that book and in the end he scored much more marks than me in our AIEEE exam.

So guys it’s not only me who is suggesting you to buy this book but thousands of teachers and IITian’s also advised the aspirant to prepare from this book. Other details about the book are shared below.

3.) Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd

Organic Chemistry Books For IIT JEE Preparation

Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd is among the top 3 Organic Chemistry Books for IIT JEE Preparation.  Its seventh edition was published in 2010. The book is highly recommended for the aspirants who are preparing for engineering and medical competitive exams.

The best thing about the book is that it gives strength to the boring topic and makes it interesting for the students. The book is simple, systematic and easily understandable.

The way of writing, coloured photographs throughout the book makes it even more interesting to read.

The best covered topics in Morrison Organic Chemistry are Molecular Structure and Properties and Principles of Organic Chemistry.

It helps the students to understand the role of molecular structure in understanding the basics of organic chemistry.

As discussed above the book is simple, systematic and easily understandable which every student seeks for. The book is well appreciated on the basis: that it covers each and every topic from basic to advanced level and students gain a lot of knowledge about the subject.

I found out reviews of students who studied Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd and here are the reviews..

“This book is really good. It helped me a lot in understanding the subject in the simplest possible way. Everything has been started from the zero level which is really fantastic.

 “This book is awesome and it is so cheap, dont hesitate to buy this book if you are in class 11 or above, this book will make you professor of organic chemistry i have read many books dinesh, pradeep, ncert, this book is FROM LOW TO HIGH LEVEL all your question end here IF YOU ARE A DEEP STUDIER then this book is definitly for you.”

*Scope of Improvement (Why you should keep away from this Book)

I think there is little scope of improvement as far as practice of question is concerned. I personally didn’t studied from this book but found out these reviews

“I am not complaining about this book, the book is well written and i enjoy it. My only complaint is that Pearson did not publish a study guide for it as they did it for the sixth edition. I have both, 6th and this Indian edition so i have no problems regarding checking my work and comparing it with the solutions given in Study guide. There are only changes in the order of chapters and questions in this edition so that’s not a big trouble but everyone does not own a copy of 6th edition. I hope the study guide for this edition will be out soon.”

“THE BOOK ITSELF IS QUITE GOOD BUT DOES NOT SERVE THE PURPOSE OF IIT JEE BY ANY MEANS…… THE TOPICS ARE FAR MORE ELABORATED THAN REQUIRED…. ALSO THERE ARE PRACTICALLY ZERO QUESTIONS….. THOUGH IT CONTAINS THINGS VERY DETAILED IF SOMEONE PATIENT ENOUGH…WUD BE VERY HAPPY…… IITJEE ASPIRANTS BACK OUT DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON THIS INSTEAD GO FOR WILEY ORGANIC”

Personal Review: – If you think beyond IIT JEE rank and want to gain knowledge then this book is for you. If you like this book then you can buy and understand the concepts from this book and later can practice questions from any other different book.

While I was collecting information about Organic Chemistry Books for IIT JEE Preparation I hardly find good books of Indian Author.

It doesn’t mean that Indian Authors are not great but the thing is they prefer to teach student own their own in various coaching centres rather putting their experience and knowledge on pieces of paper.

So this is my part guys. I tried to figure out the top 3 Organic Chemistry Books for IIT JEE Preparation from the list of hell lot of other preparation books and tried to explain about these three books deeply.

Unfortunately I can’t compare the three books to each other because all of them are profound in their own way. Only you can find out the best book for you regarding Organic Chemistry IIT JEE preparation.

But my advice to you is that don’t buy any other book just because that is cheap or suggested by some random person.
