Expert Answer:

You don't need to learn equation (reactants and products) by heart. You will never be able to remember it.

  • Starting from basics, you should be aware of all the symbols of elements.
  • First understand the reaction, its reactants and products formed from the given reactants. Then try to balance the atoms present on the reactant side with atoms present on the product side. Understand its mechanism.
  • Learn all the functional groups.
  • Learn the rules of IUPAC nomenclature thoroughly. This will help you in naming compounds accurately.
  • You need to be able to name a compound from its given formula.

You must study and practice all the equations given in the text book. You can also practice questions from the test section that is provided in our website (www.topperlearning.com).
