Is Organic chemistry That Much Difficult?Team Altis Vortex
‘Organic chemistry is a branch of chemistry that studies organic compounds’ structure, properties, and reactions, which contain carbon in covalent bonding. As NEET aspirants are afraid of Physics, they find Organic chemistry.
The reason why Organic chemistry is difficult, it consists of over 15 million organic compounds, and that number is rising rapidly as scientists study and isolate further compounds.
The second reason is the memorization of compounds, which is like a nightmare. Not only are there more than 15 million organic compounds, but there are different rules governing the reactions and properties of each of these compounds. The trickiest part is how suddenly the rules change. Depending on the environment in which a reaction takes place, the same conditions can lead to wildly different results. The rules are flexible, and there are always exceptions.
The key to master in Organic Chemistry for NEET involves discipline, putting in time consistently, doing problems, and focusing on learning concepts. The more interest you will show, the more concepts you will understand.
In some ways, concepts of Organic Chemistry can be easily understood. Let’s see… what those ways are:-
Build a strong Conceptual Base
Building up a strong conceptual base is the most important thing to master in Organic Chemistry. Learn concepts, practice and identify weaknesses, then practice the weaker topics and Improve them. As the test approaches, emphasis on strengths.
Focus on Understanding, Not Memorization of concepts
There are some topics that require memorization like nomenclature terms, functional groups, and so on. Memorization is good as long as you understand the concepts deeper. But, It will become difficult to memorize everything. So, focus less on memorizing long sequences of arrows, and chunk mechanisms into steps. Always try to understand the concepts.
Should know about Theories and Reasoning of why something happens
If students will truly understand the theory and reasoning of what they were being taught. It will be better to apply it to other sections of Organic Chemistry. Knowing why something happens is very useful because it allows you to apply it to other situations.
Regularly attend classes and never procrastinate
Never miss even a single class, if it’s Online or Offline. Always be engaged with the teacher. Half the battle is just showing up. Go over the class notes every day over and over again, and try to understand the concepts. Don’t leave any backlogs, avoid procrastination. Understand & Memorize reactions and mechanisms through practising.
Consistently Practice Questions
It is one thing that every NEET aspirant must do is, ‘Consistently Practicing Questions’. If you neglect it at the end of the day, you’ll not understand the topic until solving the questions. After doing a problem, ask yourself what you learned from it, instead of just mentally ticking it off and moving on to the next one.
Make notes for important stuff and mistakes
Right from the beginning of the preparations, make note cards to learn reactions (with examples and mechanisms). When a teacher says “this is something important you should really know”, Highlight important points, Underline those lines, and add in the notes for revision. Make a notebook of your mistakes while solving problems and revise them regularly.
Learn the basic concepts of Physics
Basic Physics concepts will help aspirants in learning Organic Chemistry. A good understanding of electrostatics and familiarity with the basics of thermodynamics, equilibrium, and kinetics will also help students to grasp Organic chemistry in a better way.
NEET aspirants must follow the above tips for Organic chemistry. Secondly, to understand the ‘Concepts and Exceptions’, NEET aspirants need the best Quality Content book for practising Reactions and Exceptions, in which all the topics are given in a concise manner and in an easy language because sometimes, it’s difficult to understand the concepts from NCERT.
So, the best & quality content book for Organic Chemistry is ‘Selected Problems Organic Chemistry’ of ‘Altis Vortex’ Publications. With the help of this book… NEET aspirants can score perfect marks in Chemistry.
Reasons why this book is beneficial … it consists
- Topic-wise sequential
- conceptual problems
- Brain twister problems
- Assertion & Reason questions
- Statement based questions
You all will find everything in one book, so why need multiple books for practising? What are you all students waiting for… Go & Grab It.
Conclusion At Last
The best way to study organic chemistry for NEET is to practice reactions and solve questions and problems. While practising questions, aspirants will retain all the mechanisms for the long term without actually memorizing the mechanisms only for a test.
