Main Question or Discussion Point

I’m a high school student, I generally get problem in chemical reactions. I understand all physical and chemical properties of a compound, for example carboxylic acid have all the acidic property and aldehydes are highly polar. But the problem comes in chemical reactions like shift of positive charge. What can I do to improve myself in chemical reactions?

May I suggest borrowing some molecular models ? Actually having them in your hands when comparing to charge distribution drawings and animations may help you visualise the influences and processes.

Due Care, of course. Such physical models have their limits, be aware...
