Textbook for organic chemistry

  1. Sep 10, 2013 #1
    Hi everybody, i am an Italian student in a B.Sc. in Biotechnology. I did not pass organic chemistry exam so i would like to study everything again, better.
    I have studied on Bruice but there is a problem: at the end of the book i din't understand the reaction mechanism so i only memorized them. I don't like memorize things, and i want to understand them.
    I want to change book and i come up with these:
    1. Wade
    2. McMurry
    3. Clayden
    4. Carey
    5. Hornback

    In the written part of the exam there are only 6 reaction mechanism, so i don't actually need to be able to solve problems. I just want to understand reaction mechanism perfectly, without the need to memorize them.

    Thank you and good evening!
