Sir I want to buy an advanced book for reference in organic. My tuition teacher has suggested that I read one after studying from bahl n bahl and school books. I have found out about 2 books which meet my requirements---Peter Sykes and Morrison & Boyd . Which do you think is better for me to buy ??

Sykes is not a text book.. It is a collection of mechanisms.

You should use Morrison Boyd. You could add Sykes as a reference book

both books are awesome.

Even bhal and bahl is decent.

You could actually try Solomon's!

It is really well written. In the same league as Morrison Boyd.

What about the new gen O.P.Tandon and the Arihant

eureka123 ·

OP Tondon and Arihant are crap...

Tush Watts ·

Arihant and Peter sykes are good one

Debotosh.. ·

believe me.......arihant will just lead you to wilderness and wrong explanations.....never go for arihant.....its dangerous.....better go for mechanism books by MUKUL C.RAY (mtg publishers) and S.N.SANYAL(bharati bhawan publishers) !!!!!

NO arihant plz!!

Dr.House ·

peter sykes is enough dude. then if u have it, no need to buy mukul c ray and sanyal sanyal.

I have another query in addition to ronald's ques.

I am using Finar and sanyal .. occassionally i use arihant to practice questions...

Is it enough?

I dont know why everyone is so much against arihant organic..

I used it for my preparations.. It is a really good book to use for class XII and specially towards the end.. (of course not for those who want to master the subject)

For them morrison boyd or solomon's etc would be ideal

but now do you have the time to study those bibles?

I dont think so ..

I still stick to my recommendation of Arihant organic.. even though I aint any chemistry expert ...
