Reviews and Self Study
Great organic chemistry text with many references to primary literature. This is a very readable reference book (Both Part A and B) if you already have some knowledge of organic chemistry.
Provides a great discussion of important organic reactions including descriptions of mechanisms, stereochemistry, and reaction conditions. Part B also includes many references to the primary literature.
Another excellent organic chemistry text with a focus on reactions, mechanisms, and structure. Includes many references to primary literature including checked reactions from Organic Syntheses. N.B. contains a section in Appendix A about Literature resources in organic chemistry.
Teach yourself how to write reaction mechanisms.
