I have taken general chem 1&2 and orgo chem 1&2, but I honestly don't know how the chemistry I know relates or is used in anything. I can write page long synthesis and mechanisms, but I don't really know what I'm making, if it's safe, or if it's impossible. I only have one chemistry class left for my degree, and I doubt I'll learn much applicable stuff there. I am looking for a book that tells about the chemistry of common things and experiments and is written for someone who has a good understanding of chemistry. I don't want a book explaining what electrons are, but it may be at a children's level. Any recommendations?
