@Subhomoy..
Dont read from Arihant ..though many ppl like that book but in my opinion for organic books by foreign authors are better...
I wud suggest u to read Peter Sykes and Paula Bruice...
both these books are available online..
though Morrison Boyd is also good but In Paula Bruice the theory is explained in a colourful an d quite interesting manner..

Arihant is equally good. I started Organic Chemistry after it was over in my institute... (Silly me!). But just after seeing my abysmal performance in Phase Test of it, I was determined to do it somehow and purchased Arihant's. It has everything what is necessary. Even Solomons is fan-tastic book. But there is possibility that you may get rambled in the text as it is in random manner (but equally good). So, purchase any one of them. If you 'only' want to do Organic Chemistry --> Go for Morrisson.. It will take hell lot of time to cover.

There are many books (available as ebooks as well)

Peter Skyes (Must for mechanisms)
Paula Bruice (available as ebook)
J. Clayden ( " )
I.L. Finar ( " )
J. March ( " ) (not advised... only for specific examples)
Solomons (not sure if ebook available)

Skyes is must

choose any ONE from the rest.. (for buying)... u can have the ebooks of everything else..

Solomons is what I use...it's pretty darn good and shorter than Morrison and Boyd.
I wish I could say I'm a starter in physics...but now it's too late [9]

Subhomoy Bakshi ·

ok so you are telling i should start studying organic chemistry from the solomon's??

i want a book which will give me a strong base...becoz i am a starter!!

You have to do the hard yards. And yes, I'm suggesting you take Solomons. No Indian author will give you a good hold over organic chemistry, sorry, it's the cold and harsh truth.
