      I know all about alkanes alkenes ester alcohol etc its confusing naming and the organic compound and spotting which one is which

      All based on the alkane family. ie carbon carbon single bond. need to know up to 4 carbons in each family. the functional group determines the family. learn the functional groups for alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, acids, aldehydes, and esters.

      alkanes: methane, ethane, propane, butane, pentane etc sentence to remember the order of the first four : must eat proper breakfast

      khan acadamy is a really good place to start he explains all chem in normal words and i think definition are best understood .its hard to mermorise a group of words put together and make no sense. if you understand the definition you will still get the points for writing it in your own words.
